Jack added, “Everyone has been so supportive; it makes me emotional. It’s really beautiful to see people come together.” While the documentary is very emotional, the kids said that it is also really fun because it features footage from Val’s entire life. He loved shooting home videos so it was really exciting for the kids to see after all these years.
Mercedes said her dad likes to document his life, so sharing his cancer battle was no different. Jack said, “He’s just a monster of life and he loves life so much. He has to document everything because he can’t be stopped.”
