A Ball Dropped is a documentary that could have been made in any area of society, rich or poor, any ethnicity in any country and any age. That it is Cancer oriented is merely because that is how I discovered it myself 25 years ago. However there are many many causes, too many to mention here. My grateful thanks to Philly Morris for his unswerving faith and to Ben Thornley Paul Bez Burrows and the rest of the Sitcom Soldiers team for bringing this to life, but most of all, to the people you will meet. They are the real heroes of this film. Please watch and share the download link if you care one iota about your fellow humans. Thanks, Nick.
