Film charts doctor's journey through cancer treatment

  • Comment

A doctor’s experiences with terminal cancer are the subject of a new website and upcoming documentary

Dr Anna Donald was a young Australian doctor, Rhodes scholar and world-renowned pioneer in the field of evidence based medicine. She died of cancer last year, aged 42.

Dr Donald chose to view her cancer as an adventure and was determined to chart her progress. A film about her life documents her extraordinary courage and professional committment as she sought to advance medical practitioners’ understanding of the disease through her own experiences.
