Synopsis

My Fight tells the story of Stephanie Ramirez, a young Youtube personality who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma cancer. This documentary brings attention to a difficult decision-making process that most of us would prefer not to think about. My Fight presents these implications in the flesh as we follow Stephanie, through this journey. It is a raw view into the world of a woman not only coping with cancer at a very young age but also learning to accept her new body image after losing a limb to this illness.

At the age of 21, Stephanie was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. After a painful round of chemotherapy, Stephanie discovered her battle was not over and her left leg was amputated to save her life.

The film follows Stephanie for one year as her world is turned upside-down and she faces the possibility of death in her early twenties. Through her experience, we see how young individuals handle everyday pressures and how the human spirit evolves when it
