The broadcast of Frontline’s “Being Mortal” documentary was accompanied by an unprecedented rollout of ancillary content for the web and radio based on our team’s reporting, including a web-based film for Frontline’s YouTube channel called “A Last Wish.”

In this 8-minute web film, 46-year-old Debbie Whitmore — who has been living with advanced colon cancer for two and a half years — decides to refocus the short time she has left on what matters to her most: her family. Watch the film online here.
