Not As I Pictured is accompanied by our American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) film companion guide for patients, caregivers and survivors. The booklet contains oncologist-approved information, and messages of support and hope from John, and from Li, his wife and caregiver.

Along with the film, the Not As I Pictured Film Companion Guide can help give just a small nugget of new courage, and the belief that you can make it through to the other side—back to the joy of everyday and the wonderful gifts that life has to offer.

The guide also includes helpful cancer resources.

For groups:
We are currently developing an interactive Group Tookit for support groups, using the motivational Not As I Pictured film along with the toolkit exercises to facilitate group discussion. Stay tuned for details!
