This film is a must-see program for anyone dealing with a life-threatening or debilitating illness. Cancer support groups, individual patients, and families will be inspired by Dave’s poignant and sincere discussion of his fears and what he did to overcome them.

It offers practical suggestions about coping and it’s very funny.”

deeply introspective, life-affirming story.”
Boston Herald



After his 3rd ’bout with cancer, Dave Fitzgerald passed on March 16, 2000. He never wanted anyone to feel sorry for him. He was delighted that, because of modern medicine and his “magic mud,” he was able to enjoy life for four more beautiful years. His amazing attitude lives on.

“Remember to feel the breeze”
