Julie Fisher FarbmanLegacies live on through the stories we tell. From interviewing the likes of His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama and Michelle Obama, to creating and hosting the series Modern Hero (Amazon) highlighting women role models, Emmy-nominated filmmaker, Julia Fisher Farbman, has dedicated her career to doing just that. Now she's determined to share the legacy of healthcare hero, Dr. Audrey Evans with the world through her upcoming feature film “Audrey’s Children.” Evans, who passed away in September 2022 at the age of 97, was a revolutionary pediatric oncologist who transformed cancer treatments and co-founded the Ronald McDonald House Charities, an organization that provides housing and support to millions of families around the world. Evans was also a dear friend, mentor, and family-of-choice to Julia, who wrote and produced “Audrey’s Children” about Evans’ incredible life. The film stars Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones) as “Audrey” and takes place in 1969 when Evans was recruited to CHOP as the first female Chief of Pediatric Oncology when most of her patients didn't survive, and follows Evans as she works tirelessly to change that. Join Julia as she shares her journey of bringing this icon’s story from concept to the big screen, and the tremendous honor and responsibility she feels to make Evans, and those whose lives she has touched, proud.
