Islander featured in inspiring documentary

Oldwyn, who has been fighting a brain tumor since 2010, shares on her blog, "I want to live. I want to live like most people want a new car, or a baby, or a vacation, or a new house, or a boyfriend, or wife. I want to breathe this sweet air. To feel the cool breeze. To hug. To laugh. To smile. To ride my bike with the sun on my face."
