Battling cancer is a monumental struggle that takes shape in the smallest actions. Everyday activities take on new meaning in the face of cancer’s debilitating symptoms. Even making it to a cancer treatment center can be a challenge. That’s where the non-profit group Your Ride Is Here comes in.

The group provides transportation to and from treatment – often in some of the most exotic, expensive cars on the planet.

Ken Adams knows firsthand the difficulties of living with cancer. The Austin, Texas resident was lucky enough to have a ride to and from treatment, but he saw many other patients who were not as fortunate.

Vitality is a movie that takes the audience on a journey into the world of health-care in our modern world.

Positive TV visits 999 It’s time.

We are sharing a film from a remarkable young man called Felix Finkbeiner.

When Felix was 9 years old he stood in front of the United Nations General Assembly and asked the grownups a simple question:

“We children know adults know the challenges and they know the solutions,” he said. “We don’t know why there is so little action.”

Taking responsibility in his own hands, Felix created a remarkable environmental cause that has expanded into a global network of children activists working to slow the Earth’s warming by reforesting the planet.
