the "ME" film

the “ME” film

Director Lexie Shabel began filming “the ME film” on the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 – as she said to the camera, “I’m not going to have surgery, I’m the one who made this cancer, I’m the one who’s going to make it go away.” Motivated to explore different options than the four generations of cancer scarred Shabel women before her, Lexie chose to not have surgery while living with her tumor for nearly nine years.
