Five Minutes for Muscular Dystrophy

3 Sep

Phil Cantore passed away in December 2008. But thanks to his passion for film making, his story lives on.

Phil’s struggle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is chronicled in a short documentary that he worked on with Mark Curcio (CDM ’09) and Stuart Lasky (CDM ’09) while the trio were seniors at DePaul.

Recently the mini-doc, titled “Phil’s Plan,” got some air time via Chicago’s ABC7 News. You can check out the story on ABC7’s website. And watch the youtube video of “Phil’s Plan” for some really heart-wrenching and insightful stuff.

Just two semesters shy of graduation, Phil received his DePaul degree posthumously, making him a 2009 graduate of DePaul’s College of Computing and Digital Media.
