Filmmakers Seek Help To Finish Andy Whitfield Documentary

Documentary filmmakers who followed the courageous cancer battle fought by original Starz "Spartacus" star Andy Whitfield are seeking help from fans.

While the actor was fighting non-Hodkin's lymphoma, Whitfield allowed a camera crew, led by Lilibet Foster, to document his journey.

"This unprecedented access and his openness and honesty gives the audience an intimate look into his personal life, that is rarely shared, especially by a celebrity. It was Andy's hope that by opening his story up to a documentary, he might help or inspire others facing similar challenges, while pushing to accelerate the pace of cancer research around the world," reads a synopsis on the film's KickStarter page.

The crew followed Andy as he underwent Western and Eastern treatments.

Titled "Be Here Now," the inspirational motto he lived by, the footage also shows his strong support system - Whitfield's beloved wife Vashti -- and features loving moments between Whitfield and his children.
