"A Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer" is an all-singing, all-dancing look at life following a cancer diagnosis.

Granted, it doesn't exactly sound like a barrel of laughs -- but what's the best way of confronting the highs and lows of the scariest word we know?

It will look behind the pink ribbons at the reality of cancer: the waiting rooms and chemo suites, at the family pressures and financial worries. And it will do it all with big anthems, shiny costumes... and some real cancer patients.
