Nancy Clauter’s world was changed forever the day she heard three little words: “You have cancer.” As a music professor at the University of Kentucky and principal oboe with the Lexington Philharmonic, the diagnosis of non-curable cancer meant not only facing mortality, but also the loss of her ability to communicate through music.

The Ascending Journey, a 30-minute documentary, follows Nancy’s journey from her diagnosis of a rare form of blood cancer called multiple myeloma, through chemotherapy and groundbreaking stem cell transplant therapy. As she battles cancer, Nancy fights to continue to play and inspire others through her strength and her song.
