Synopsis: Dee Dee Ricks was living her dream—she had a successful business, two beautiful kids, and a whirlwind social life. But after being diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing a double mastectomy, Ricks trades her hedge-fund career for philanthropy, raising money for a Harlem clinic that treats uninsured and underserved patients. Director Perri Peltz candidly tracks the emotional rebirth of a survivor determined to help make life easier for other cancer patients, following Ricks over a three year period as she battles her disease, struggles to raise money for the clinic and reevaluates her purpose in life.
