CW PRESS RELEASE

MY LAST DAYS, an uplifting documentary series about life as told by courageous people living with a terminal illness, will return for its second installment as a three-night special event, Friday, May 25 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), Friday, June 1 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), and Friday, June 8 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT), on The CW. Created by and featuring JANE THE VIRGIN star Justin Baldoni, season three of MY LAST DAYS features the compelling stories of five courageous individuals, who remind us that having a limited amount of time doesn’t mean we can’t make a positive impact on the world.

“When I first started this series five years ago, I never could have imagined it would have come this far,” said Baldoni. “This season of MY LAST DAYS quite literally changed my life.  And with so much noise across the country at the moment, I hope families will take the time to come together and watch these incredible stories.”

 

 

The inspiring people featured in MY LAST DAYS include:

Marinda Davis is a choreographer and master teacher dedicated to opening hearts and
breaking barriers through dance. Struggling since childhood with a range of unidentified
health issues, Marinda was diagnosed with seven autoimmune diseases and told that she
wouldn’t live past the age of forty. But Marinda is much more than the sum of her
illnesses. A dancer from the moment she tried on her first pair of ballet slippers, she’s
danced professionally for Sting and 98 Degrees, and choreographed for some of the top
studios and schools around the world. And while Marinda can’t physically dance
anymore, she’s channeled her passion into a spectacular contemporary dance show
entitled UNbreakable. Loosely based on the Kübler-Ross model of the five stages of
grief, UNbreakable tells the story of Marinda’s emotional and physical journey with
illness, and highlights the resilience of the human spirit.

his camera. Diagnosed with ALS attwenty-six, Anthony learned thatthe nerve cells in

Ellie Boloori Oben is a mother, and community leader who was diagnosed with breast
cancer in 2012. As a lifelong Baha’i, Ellie took solace in her faith as the disease
progressed, believing cancer was a reminder that the impermanence of life is what truly
gives it meaning. Ellie met her illness with the same fighting spirit she carried
throughout her life, with only one goal in mind – living as long as possible so she could
be there for her young son Jalen, the light of her life. After being given only two weeks
to live, Ellie’s final wish was to host a celebrationoflifesoshecouldsurroundherself
withfriends and family and say goodbye with a smile. Ellie’s ultimate hope is that all
people can live happily, joyfully, and kindly.

and tenacity for life have given her the strength to surpass every doctor’s prognosis.

instead of worrying about what may be to come, Diane has focused on positivity and
humor, seeking to transform something ugly into something beautiful. Diane is all about
celebrating the little moments that matter most, and cherishing every minute she hasleft
with the love of her life.
