A film by Mike Wilkinson.

Stacy Hodges was happily living life and teaching English in Thailand when unexpected pains revealed a tumor in her spine. A whirlwind of chemotherapy, treatment, physical therapy and life changes showed her that the path to recovery wasn’t just about taking medications. Her interests in the outdoors and love of rock climbing kept her going, and made her journey back to a normal life happen much faster.

Now with another chance to live life to the fullest, Stacy is giving back by educating others on the health benefits of eating right and being active.
