Summary In 1991, Edmonton filmmaker Joe Viszmeg was diagnosed with a rare form of adrenal cancer and told he would not live through the year. Four years later, Viszmeg completed the eloquent film In My Own Time - Diary of a Cancer Patient. In the subsequent three years, Viszmeg continued his courageous filmmaking. This new work blends segments of the first film with the extraordinary story of how, with the support of his family, he survived the roller coaster of a deadly cancer until his death in the summer of 1999. A mixture of personal journals, often humorous narration, medical interviews and moving images
