A+E has ordered a new docuseries called “Eight Days” that will offer alternative ways to fight cancer. Director Charles Mattocks, Executive Producer Matthew Knowles, and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Antonio Jimenez, of Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers, have teamed up to change the way we understand cancer that will give viewers an inside look at what healing from the disease is really like, as well as highlight new integrative cancer treatment options.
The five patients highlighted in the series include Kate Malvenan, diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. The 39-year old solo mother from Australia’s Gold Coast is determined to beat cancer for her 3-year-old daughter, Annabelle. At the time of her original diagnosis, Kate was given only six months to live, with cancer spreading throughout her spine, hips, ribs, shoulder, and liver. Refusing to give up, she arrives on the series ready to embrace change with the spirit of a warrior and the strength of a mother.
The other four are Carrie Crary (43), an active, health-conscious nurse who battles Breast Cancer for the second time; Jose Fernandez (66), a pastor diagnosed with Prostate Cancer; Nicole Randle (41)who works to overcome Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer; and; 57-year old Janine Jannicelli who is diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
