Hold my Breath
Hush my Head
Count my steps
I need this more than ever
Might feel strange
Connotation makes you (them) feel pride
“Filomena GOES where You Forecast – Follow ME”
Children with cancer and limb differences are virtually invisible in the kid’s media. Teaming up with Scarlett Contra El Cancer, Studio NYC sought to create a meaningful, moving and identifiable story for these children that could offer a role model.
Scarlett is a short film depicting the inner struggle of a girl who lost a leg to Ewing Sarcoma, a bone cancer that occurs in mostly children. Amputation takes as much of an emotional toll as a physical one – especially for a child.
Believing in the power to empower children through storytelling and role models. Offering them hope and a sense of belonging at a critical time where they may feel isolated by their medical condition.
A short film based on a true story that inspired a foundation.
You can make a difference for the better in the lives of children with cancer.
On social media, the outpouring from the communities around childhood cancers and limb loss was remarkable. Within the first year of its release, Scarlett had over 10,000,000 views worldwide.
