SYNOPSIS: My Fight is a film that brings attention to the difficult decision making process that most of us would prefer not to think about. How should an individual decide to treat or heal their illness in cases like cancer? My Fight presents these implications in the flesh as we follow Stephanie Ramirez through this journey, a raw view into the reality of a cancer victim as she fights to take control of her treatment.

After a painful treatment of chemotherapy, Stephanie found out her battle was not over and her left leg was amputated to save her life. This documentary is about her journey, as she picks up the pieces and fights to battle cancer, a beautiful exposition on what generosity and compassion is all about.
