the dark days are over

Friend and fellow Hodgkin's transplant survivor, Tom de Bruin, produced and published a brief biographical video called The Dark Days Are Over about his cancer experience.  Although we've never met in person, we have been communicating and developing a friendship in the process since learning about each other via our cancer blogs online.  In fact, we both were diagnosed around the same.  He at age 21 and I at age 23.  We both underwent a number of relapses and had transplants in 2007. 

Thankfully, four and a half years later, he is Hodgkin's free and the proud father of a wonderful, young boy. 

I hope you find this beautifully film as inspiring and poignant as I did.

My name is Evan Bartlett, and I was diagnosed with Leukemia when I was 4 months old. I am now 20 years old. I bring this up only because I am currently working on a documentary called, Discovering The Beating Path. We will be embarking on a journey across the West July 1st- August 20th. Along the way we will stop at cancer camps, retreats, and support groups.

I've been reading your blogs, and I love what you have to say about cancer. "The Dark Days Are Over" video was very interesting. I feel that every survivor story must be told. My crew and I are trying to promote our project as much as possible. I provided a couple links so you could get a better understanding:
