Jennifer Aniston, an executive producer on the series and director of the film Mia, explains the necessity of the project:
"Because we don't yet have a cure, and cancer has grown 30,000 snakes out of its head. We need to go at this Medusa with all the firepower we've got, from research and legislation, to awareness and early detection, to support groups and compassion for everyone who walks through this. We need to show up for them, to talk to them, to not be afraid."
Demi Moore stepped up to direct Charlotte and echoes Aniston's concerns, confessing to a little bit of avoiding the thorny subject herself:
"Before this project came up, even I really didn't want to pay attention. I feel that this came to me to make me pay attention. What I've learned from all the work Ashton and I do is that we so often don't address any cause with enough urgency."
Last but not least there's Alicia, responsible for helming Lili from the series:
"I felt like this was something important, and I wanted to be a part of it. I chose Lili because she's close to my age and I understood the family dynamic. I had an immediate idea of what I could bring to it."
