Lady Ganga

When her doctors told her that she only had a few months to live, Michele Baldwin decided to do just that...

Michele Frazier Baldwin a 45 year old Mother of three knew she was going to die. She was diagnosed with late-stage cervical cancer.
She knew this would be her last opportunity to make a difference in the World and what she did in the waning months of her life was truly remarkable…And she gave us full access to film it all, with nothing off-limits.

She decided that she would travel to India to paddle board over 700 miles down the Ganges River, spreading awareness about this disease that was going to kill her and breaking a World Record in the process.
Michele felt a higher calling. She had a soft spot for the people of India and she knew that India had the highest mortality rate from cervical cancer in the World. More than 50,000 Indian women die needlessly every year from this preventable cancer. So, she packed her bags and explained to her kids why this was so important for her.




When she returned back home to her family in New Mexico, Michele's time was quickly coming to an end. As her health rapidly deteriorated, Michele wanted people to see the ugly realities of HPV and cervical cancer. Her hope was to inspire people to stay on top of their health, so nobody else would have to suffer from this disease.








To complete this film we need YOUR HELP !

We see this as an INSPIRATIONAL short-form documentary that will also help to educate and maybe even save lives.
Once the film is finished, 100% of profits from sales and licensing of the film will go to the Michele Baldwin Memorial Fund which is managed by ASHA (American Sexual Health Association), a 100 year old non-profit organization who run the NCCC (National Cervical Cancer Coalition)
