Storyline

Young Christopher Millard fantasizes about being a squire of the Round Table and studies the stars. But when his difficulty breathing turns out to be caused by a tumor, his fantasies turn into a means to battle the disease. Chemotherapy eats his summer and instead of writing the standard "What I did during my summer vacation", his teacher lets him write a fictional story, and Chris makes characters from the people around him. As Chris battles with doctor, treatments, and the illness, Squire Millard goes on a quest against an evil sorceress to gain the four diamonds of Courage, Wisdom, Honesty, and Strength: qualities that Chris himself attains as his health fails. Written by Kathy Li

A True Story...sort of
8 March 2004 | by (State Colleg, PA) – See all my reviews

The story of Chris Millard is one that has been inspiring people for over 30 years. There is a Four Diamonds fund that was set up by Chris's parents to help children with childhood cancer. The story itself was written by Chris Millard before he passed away from cancer. The four diamonds are courage, honesty, strength and wisdom, which were all things that he needed to fight his battle with cancer. It is such a great story, I wish they would run the movie again so that more people could see it. It is a great way for children to understand what cancer is without having to actually realize what cancer really is. Disney should release it as an anniversary edition next year.
