Best Selling Author Christine Handy’s “Walk Beside Me” To Be Adapted Into Feature Film Titled “WILLOW”






World Wide Web – October 14, 2018, Christine Handy is a bestselling author, mother, and breast cancer survivor living in Florida. Her novel “Walk Beside Me” is a story that centers on a breast cancer survivor’s journey to health and wholeness. It is a fictional interpretation of Christine’s actual illness and the long road to recovery. “Walk Beside Me” was recently signed for film production by Ziad Hamzeh, and will be titled “Willow”.

The new movie creation will be formally announced during breast cancer awareness month,
to create a further dialogue on the devastating disease that affects one in eight US women
(about 12.4%) over the course of her lifetime. Award-winning actress, Sheena Colette will play the lead character, Willow Adair.

“Walk Beside Me” weaves a heartfelt path of hope, prayer, and friendship as a woman fights her illness. It is a story of miracles and survival. The book was a national bestseller in 2016. As of January 2018, there are more than 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment. About 40,920 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2018 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989. Women under 50 have experienced larger decreases. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.

Christine’s personal story has been featured in prestigious magazines like American Volkssport Association, Edge, Inner Realm, The Art of Healing; Kindred Spirit, Outreach, and more. Christine has also been featured as a breast cancer advocate and expert on Fox News Radio. Production for the movie is anticipated to begin in 2019.
