Whether you’ve struggled with your own health, or gone through health issues with a loved one, you understand what it’s like to try to beat the odds. The movie 50/50 captures the journey of 27-year-old Adam, who was diagnosed with cancer and later discovers he has a 50/50 chance of survival. With a less than optimistic outlook, friendship, family and humor are the only things that get him through this difficult time, but not before he goes through the natural process of dealing with the devastating news.
