"Dr. Dennis Slamon helps develop a new experimental drug called Herceptin, which he hopes will become a revolutionary treatment in the fight against breast cancer. However, when funding for his project is cut, Slamon must turn to philanthropists Lilly Tartikoff and Ron Perelman to help make his life's most important work a reality. This gut-wrenching true story explores one doctor's difficult struggle to find a cancer treatment that can save thousands of lives while giving meaning to his own life."--Container.

Very touching. While watching, I was praying that there are more, many many more, doctors in the real world like this one!

Amazing film based on a true story. Personally, this theme of challenging the medical status quo is something I have become very interested in. This film is a welcome addition to the other resources I have come across.

I saw the movie and I had liked it
this is based on a true story this would be for doctors and nurses
to watch and for patients that are getting treatments done but not for children to watch
