Hey Guys, I'm Jai Coutrney I had the great pleasure of working with Andy Whitfield on Spartacus: Blood and Sand Not only did we become best mates, but he took me under his wing and helped shape the foundation of my career, something for which I'm eternally grateful. You lower your guard after each assault. I shall see it raised then. When Andy was diagnosed with cancer, he decided to share his journey with the rest of the world in the form of a documentary and led by an Oscar Nominated film maker Lilibet Foster a camera followed his personal story for over a year Look at that face, do you see that face? The filmmakers now need your support to get the documentary finished so we are asking you to join us in making a contribution You'll help us fulfill Andy's wishes and bring this story to life and it will also help us shed a light on the need to find cures for cancer so that we can stop losing loved ones to this disease Thank you. Be Here Now A Feature Documentary Preview We have a way in our lives and worlds where, if we really focus on something and we really want to make something happen we put absolutely everything into it Why are you here? What's going on? This is real. This is real sweat. This is gladiator bootcamp. I started yesterday and my buttocks are killing me. It was literally on the cusp of Spartacus ... nailing and getting Spartacus And I remember on that day I put a little note up facing out to the ocean Saying "Andy is Spartacus" and there were notes up everywhere, "Andy is Spartacus" before he even got it. We made it happen And that is how we roll. Even if it takes years. We are capable of making extraordinary things happen. The Champion of Capua. The bringer of rain, Andy Whitfield I am Spartacus I mean I was exhausted by the end of the first season but I'm pretty sure that anyone would have been. It's one of the most extreme things I have ever gone through. and there was a lot of pain at the end of that and I wasn't sure what it was and it wasn't going away and ended up being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma Andy's Doctors tell his that he has 3 to 6 months to live if he does not have treatment We've just found out that lymphoma has come back and I have all sorts of f#$%^ng scary information about what that means I think I'm just so numb from too much information that I just don't know how to feel right now When I asked the oncologist what causes the disease I have, he said, "No idea." How do you fix something, if you don't know the cause? You can patch it up but does it take away the conditions that created it and maintain it in the first place? And so I have just become fascinated with that question right now and I think there is a whole world out there to look at, to try and answer that question. I just feel settled, be interesting to see how I go when I get home Back in the mental ... ness of the West. Be Here Now Daddy Hello Oh, I have missed you guys Look at that I'm going to decorate the tree. Show me. That's it ... breathe out ... you can do this Andy You are doing an incredible job. That's it breathe out ... breathe into the pain, sweetheart. You did a great job So, the scan showed an improvement, so there is still disease there, but it is less than it was before How much has it diminished? Maybe 50%? Something like that ... Great, well that ... that's going the right way ... that's better news than we could have had. Absolutely Well done! ... Thank you ... Well Done In my heart I am convinced that that this is all meant to be I'm supposed to be right here ... right now and I'm open to the journey and to the discoveries and to the adventure of all of this. Be Here Now ... is all about being present and not fearing what you don't know Be Here Now, ©, ©
