Teenagers with life-threatening cancer want to live like any healthy 15-year-old. At the hospital they share fun and sorrow together. They jokingly call themselves "Sickos".

I'm so into this movie. Lately, i have had calf injuries, so i couldn't dance all day and night like i would have liked to. Therefore i started watching a lot of films, which have helped me through this terrible time. This movie, 'kankerlijers', in particular has helped me greatly in overcoming these calf injuries. The film is funny and emotional at the same time; it makes me cry every time i watch it again. Actors did a great job on this one, therefore i rate it 10/10. It would have been even better if they had casted Nicolas Cage for the lead role, but unfortunately they didn't. I know that they have asked Seagal to play in this film, but he refused apparently due to the fact that his salary wasn't going to be high enough for his standards, which are obviously really high since he is one of the best actors Hollywood has ever produced.
