Cancer Research: “The Pledge” - 90s

This compilation of testimonies from people whose lives have been affected by cancer, builds in momentum towards a moving crescendo. Not all of the lines are delivered perfectly but that only adds to its authenticity and underlines the importance of the statement being made.

While it doesn't always feel appropriate to use words like 'battle' and 'fight' when reflecting on an individual's experience with this awful collection of diseases, they are useful when considering our response as a society. The medics searching for cures and treatments are indeed involved in a battle as they try to outwit the literal malignancy of cancer.

Films like this provide a mechanism which enables people to make a difference and many will surely be persuaded to include Cancer Research when they draw up their wills.
