David Downs’ story is a pretty remarkable one.  

The businessman was given a year to live in 2017 after he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of lymphoma.  

It was a similar type of cancer that killed Martin Crowe. 

But Downs decided to share with a blog titled A Mild Touch of the Cancer. 

That got international attention, and he got offered a clinical trial in the states, which saved his life.  

Now we're getting a deeper dive into his story, with the documentary A Mild Touch of Cancer coming to the International Film Festival and Prime on Tuesday the 19th of October.  

David Downs joined Mike Yardley.
