Howard Urnovitz is a long term friend, who has been a leading proponent and has made tremendous progress in circulating DNA diagnosis of cancer. He came to the University of Calgary to pursue his research program along with Calgary faculty members. He’s been a good friend for over 10 years in the US, Germany, and around the world. I am absolutely sure, that his message is essential to all cancer patients around the world.

Howard Urnovitz’s caliber in our midst. Sadly their contribution seems less important these days when compared to celebrity and shallow identity culture. I hope many people get to see this film and reflect deeply on his story.
