What Doesn't Kill You is not just a football story. It's not just a cancer story.

It's a compelling, thought provoking glimpse into the life of Lyle Bauer, a multiple Grey Cup Champion, a CFL executive and a cancer survivor.

What Doesn't Kill You is about fight, hope, inspiration and that a cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence. It is also about how profoundly everyone is changed when this beast kicks your door down without an invitation and turns lives upside down. The human spirit may be the most powerful energy on earth.  The will to live, love, and survive makes us all miracles.
