The tumor was removed, and Leena lived a relatively normal life for three years, until the doctors noticed that the cancer had relapsed and metastasized to her lungs. Leena is undergoing treatments again, but because the cancer has spread, it’s now an incurable disease.We tend to associate cancer with old age. However, Leena was in the middle of a thriving career and the mother of a 4-year old boy. This short documentary explores what it’s like to struggle with a disease like cancer, when you’ve just begun to build your life.
