HELENA — A successful Hollywood star’s creative journey has led him to Helena to tour the cancer treatment center at  St. Peter’s Health .

Daniel Roebuck’s latest film, “Getting Grace” is about a young teenage girl who is diagnosed with terminal cancer and inspires many of those around her about the art of living whilst alive.

The actor was more than thrilled to spend time in Helena and told MTN his latest masterpiece is not about a girl who dies of an unfortunate illness but about the gift of life and gratitude.

Roebuck stated, “People who help people who have cancer, that’s a very special, very special type of person. It’s like people who help people through hospices; this is, unfortunately, the part of life for many people and the movie shines a spotlight on the caregivers as well as shines a spotlight on what you know, what you make of anything, is what you make of it….you don’t have to be defined by the disease.”

The film screening served as the official kick-off for the foundation’s annual Pinwheel Pledge Campaign.

You can catch a free red carpet screening of “Getting Grace” at Carroll College’s theater at 6:00 p.m. Saturday, May 18.
