About the Production:

"Upon reviewing multiple scripts for this thesis film, we were always returning to Without You. Not only is it an amazing script and a touching story, but we started to realize that this was a film that could really make a difference in people's lives. After doing the research into lung cancer, its effects, and the staggering statistics surrounding this terrible disease, we realized that this film could be a whole lot more than just another movie. We want this film to be used to raise lung cancer awareness and eventually raise funds for lung cancer research." -- Ronald Brooks
