  • The true warrior in my life

    My sister Riz was diagnosed with Stage 4 Adrenal Cancer in 2013. My filmmaking career was on halt while ensuring that I was there for my baby sis and my whole family. One of the things that I have learned about with her fight against cancer and our incredible journey together is that people don’t really understand the hurt that comes from cancer and the incredible warrior strength that can come out of you if you have the will power. Please think about donating to lesser known Cancer Research Organizations that support Young Adults with cancer as this is one of the areas that do not get a lot of funding and yet this age group is left disrupted in their lives. I am happy to say that my sister is continuing her fight and continuing treatments as she never gives up.
