Saturday, October 7, 2017 - 1:00pm

In My Big C: Still Here After All These Years, 40-something mother, wife, and teacher is suddenly diagnosed with terminal cancer and given an 18-month prognosis. As she struggles to deal with her unending treatments and her teenaged children’s reactions, her marriage of 25 years crumbles. She finds great solace in her meditative swimming pool and begins writing a therapeutic screenplay about her life, searching for meaning and laughter in her struggles. Blindsided by even more shocking family events, she is also stunned to find what appear to be many strange and obvious parallels between her writing and a new major hit TV series about cancer. Supported by her “super-hero” team of family members, friends and amazing doctors, she struggles to survive against overwhelming odds and all expectations—to ultimately experience the major life events she feared that she would never live to see.

A theatre teacher, director, and writer, she began her teaching career at Beverly Hills High School and has taught at San Francicsco's American Conservatory Theater (ACT) and other schools. Nancy directed her own community theater for many years, has written many original short plays, and is currently writing a book/play on Shakespeare.
