Two FLEX alumnae, Veta Shapkina’99 (Bukhara, Uzbekistan) and Maria Rechkunova’99 (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) are making a documentary film about Effective Non-Toxic Cancer Treatments titled “Cancer Free.”

Absolutely anybody can become part of this great project! Maria and Veta have placed all the information about the film, its goals, and the team behind the project on website. They also have two short videos on the website. They have rewards for donations too! It is a non-profit project. The movie will be available in both
English and Russian languages for free on a website.

Here is the link to the project!
This is our story…
Maria has been fascinated with cancer since she was a teenager. During college years in American University Central Asia in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, Veta and Maria and many other FLEX alumni visited the Children’s Cancer Center. There they organized holidays for children and their parents, searched for sponsors to help with the cost of treatments, opened up Children’s Educational Center on a grant received from FLEX Eurasia to teach classes while children were in the Cancer Center.

A few years later Maria went to study biology in the US, and Veta Shapkina received master degree from VGIK (Vserossiiskii Gosudarstvennyi Institut Kinematografii im. S. A. Gerasimova) in film directing.
Last year they decided to unite their skills and knowledge and film a documentary about alternative treatments to cancer and other devastating diseases – the topic that Maria Rechkunova has been researching for the past four years!
They have contacted the clinics that practice different holistic methods, wrote the script, and now they are in the process of conducting a crowd fund-raising to make this documentary possible.  Maria and Veta will be very grateful to the FLEX community for any help and support!

Thank you, guys!
