Regina’s Gift - a Life and Death Battle With a Brain Tumor

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
Go inside the minds and hearts of two women – (one surgeon, one patient) as they fight an inoperable brain tumor. Regina’s Gift is a sometimes-frightening, sometimes-inspirational documentary film about an internationally renowned College of William and Mary associate professor’s year-long, life-and-death battle with a growth so dangerous that two world-famous medical centers refused to operate.. The film chronicles Dr. Regina Root’s harrowing battle with a “cavernous malformation” in the center of her brain stem, which left the Hispanic Studies scholar with the awful prospect of a slow slide into death or complete incapacitation if something didn’t alter the status quo. The film also captures the spiritual and emotional odyssey of a family as they cope with the prospect of impending death – and, in turn, call upon their individual faiths – Christianity (Regina is Lutheran) and Judaism (husband Michael is a Jewish associate professor of Sociology at Christopher Newport University) – as they decide whether to roll the dice on an amazingly risky 11th-hour intervention at one of the country’s most storied university hospitals when the growth explodes for a third time in a deadly hemorrhage. The film contains condensed footage from more than eight hours in the operating room during cerebrovascular neurosurgery..
