 Leukemia Patientís Heart-wrenching Documentary
20-year-old Kurt Filiga, who is close to death with acute myeloid leukemia has made a documentary of his life with the cancer.

With the help of Sir Peter Jackson's Park Road Post, Kurt was to make a film that highlighted his battle with the disease. Instead it looks like it is a diary of his final months on earth.

Kurt was diagnosed in November last year and went into remission, only for the cancer to make a comeback in April.

"When I relapsed I started to get scared," Mr Filiga said. "Maybe they won't be able to get my leukaemia under control. They said I could have days, weeks or months, that I might not make it to the end of June."

There is laughter around the home, but there is sadness as well, knowing the happiness might not last.
