Lime Pictures Inks TV Option Deal with GIRLvsCANCER’s Lauren Mahon


Lime Pictures has signed a TV option deal with Lauren Mahon to develop a fictionalized account of her experience with cancer.

After Mahon was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 31, she began sharing the nuances of the experience under the hashtag #GIRLvsCANCER. She went on to become the founder of GIRLvsCANCER and build a community while helping to change the dialogue around the disease. She’s also a part of the multi-award-winning podcast You, Me and The Big C.

Louise Sutton, Lime’s head of drama and young adults, said: “Lauren is a brilliant woman and her Girl vs Cancer movement has brought together a community of people seeking connection with like-minded souls. We are delighted to be working on bringing Lauren’s unique brand of humor and an incredible story to the screen.”

Mahon added: “I still cannot quite believe that a fictional version of my story is being brought to the screen. I didn’t think anyone would give a sh*t about another young girl with boob cancer but in hindsight, it’s a pretty impressive tale to tell. I’m incredibly proud of the work I have done since diagnosis and am elated to be working with Louise and all the talented team at Lime—what is life?! ”
