Sunday, June 5, is National Cancer Survivors' Day. A Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist is in Chicago this weekend to hand out 10,000 free copies of his film, "Not as I pictured," in which he chronicles his own cancer treatment and recovery.

John Kaplan was diagnosed at age 48 with lymphoma. He was in our ABC7 studio to talk about the film and to discuss issues of cancer coping and survivorship. Kaplan's film is being featured at the annual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
