The Girl Who Waits

Bronwyn made this mini documentary in the Filming Ourselves class at Gilda’s Club Toronto in the spring of 2013. This is the project that gave Bronwyn her voice. Before her involvement in this class she didn’t talk much. She faced cancer with a stoic resolve that it would not break her. She did not suffer foolish questions from doctors and nurses well. [“Foolish” by her standards.] I was her mouth piece. She would talk to us, her family, but never about what she was going through, never about the cancer. I credit Gilda’s Club for giving her an outlet to safely face her beast. Since this film was made Bronwyn has spoken at a few fundraisers and will speak at the National Day of Awareness and Action this Saturday at HTO Park, just before the CN Tower goes gold. I will also be making an announcement about the Knitting for Gold project. It will be the official, public announcement.
