Just Like You Films and Sporting KC

Matt Besler was fortunate to be the Sporting Kansas City representative at the Just Like You Films donation ceremony. Matt got to meet some fantastically brave kids that have either beat cancer or will soon. Matt was able to give a little of his time and help Just Like You Films; a locally based organization that is helping kids around the world.

Just Like You Films creates movies that teach kids about their friends that are in special circumstances. Their first movie was about kids who were badly burned and how others around them can understand them and realize that they are just like others kids.

The latest film is about kids that have cancer. It talks about what cancer is, various treatments for it and what the patients have to go through. The film puts very real faces with the issue. Carrie Hudson, Hope Corwin and Bryndon Barrett are the stars of the film. They speak about and show what it is like to be a kid with cancer. They go to movies, play sports, shop and hang out with friends.

Other kids with cancer now have a way to show their friends and classmates what is going on with them without answering a million questions. More importantly they shown that their friends are still kids, just like them.

Copies of the movie...


Through the support of Sporting Kansas City and the Heineman family, Just Like You Films was able to provide 150 DVD 's of the movie and 60 backpacks to Children's Mercy Hospital. That is enough to cover all of their oncology patients throughout 2011.

To help out or buy a copy of their DVD's, go to Just Like You Films or like their Facebook page to get updates.

The backpacks contained a copy of the DVD, a t-shirt and other support materials...
