Mathias Kiwanuka’s recent trip to Uganda with filmmaker Casey Neistat – I traveled to Uganda with Mathias Kiwanuka, defensive end for the NY Giants and all around great guy. His family has deep roots in Uganda and he still has a lot of family there. We went with a group called Treat the Pain, part of the American Cancer Society, they organize and help groups distribute pain medication to folks dying of AIDS and Cancer.


It’s a difficult task and an effort that’s hard to get people to care about because it’s not at all easy to talk about disease pain and death.This was why I donated my time and energy to make this movie. My Nana dedicated so much of her life to help others dealing with Cancer, it’s nice to know I have the opportunity to do the same.
