Personal documentary from Microsoft writer makes an impression

Of interest: reminding me of the brief series noted here, I found this article from Nicole Brodeur "Microsoft writer makes documentary on losing hand to cancer", about the film documentary from Joshua Isaac, a writer at Microsoft. Isaac lost his left hand to cancer and has been dealing with cancer – battling Epithelioid Sarcoma to be specific – for more than 10 years. He documented the battle in his movie "My Left Hand" showing this weekend in Seattle…

"My Left Hand" will be shown at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Museum of History and Industry as part of the 2009 Seattle Jewish Film Festival.

"But "My Left Hand" is not just the story of a young father felled by epithelioid sarcoma — a cancer so rare that Memorial Sloan-Kettering in New York, which specializes in rare malignancies, saw only 16 patients between 1982 and 1995.

"It is a valiant effort to make spiritual sense of his suffering."
