“Living Proof” is the true story of oncologist and researcher Dr. Dennis Slamon, the UCLA doctor who helped develop the breast cancer drug Herceptin, and his effort to keep the drug trials afloat. His inspiring journey shows the sacrifices he makes in his personal life and the obstacles that he faces to get the drug approved. Thousands of lives have been saved because of his dedication

Living Proof premieres on Lifetime at 9p and this movie is a must watch. Living Proof is a story about how one doctor came up with a drug that helped women beat a form of breast cancer that used to be fatal before it. This movie shows how hard it is to get a drug passed by the FDA. It shows how hard it is to get the funding and after that you have to get the test subjects. Once you get the test subjects as you move on to different phases not everyone can move on and sending those who can’t to a death sentence. But the few sacrifices will eventually lead to several thousands more being saved.
This movie should be seen because shows the struggles to gets lifesaving drugs passed by the FDA and if the restrictions weren’t so hard maybe more people could’ve been saved earlier.
But besides all of that its a touching movie that will make you laugh, cry and feel inspirational that people don’t give up! The movie stars amazing actors who give award-winning performances like Harry Connick Jr, Bernadette Peters, Trudie Styler, Angie Harmon and Jennifer Coolidge.
So tune in to Living Proof tonight at 8p and after the movie download Harry Connick Jr’s Song for the Hopeful. Sony will be donating money made from the song to breast cancer charities.
