About the Movie

Ginger the Movie is a true story about a 23 year-old woman’s pretty funny, slightly sad, powerfully emotional guide to breast cancer. The filmmakers, wanted to bring a more honest portrayal of her experience as a young woman with breast cancer to the big screen while advocating for the often overlooked subsection of young adult cancer.

Most people imagine their young adult days revolving around new jobs, budding romantic and personal relationships, and-if they’re lucky-maybe that pet they’ve always been wanting. What most people don’t expect, and what even fewer people ever receive, is a cancer diagnosis.

About the Filmmakers

Stage 4 cancer thriver, Melissa Beck-Boratyn and her husband Jimmy Boratyn are set to release their 97 minute long theatrical film Ginger – “A 23 year old woman’s pretty funny, slightly sad, powerfully emotional guide to breast cancer.”

Most people imagine their young adult days revolving around new jobs, budding romantic and personal relationships, and-if they’re lucky-maybe that pet they’ve always been wanting. What most people don’t expect, and what even fewer people ever receive, is a cancer diagnosis.

Melissa, the now 30 year old filmmaker, wanted to bring a more honest portrayal of her experience as a young woman with breast cancer to the big screen while building a community within and advocating for the often overlooked subsection of young adult cancer. She has been steadfast in wanting the film to highlight the highs and lows of life with cancer, noting that nothing about the diagnosis, treatment, or survivorship was as sterile or generic as most movies make them seem.
