We all get one chance.

This is a powerful documentary about the pursuit of life.

James Ragan teaches us how to win at living and how to make the most of every day.

Until 20 is about facing fear and having the courage to love deeply.

Imagine that at age thirteen you are diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare and deadly cancer. What James Ragan does next is the basis of this story. James challenges himself to do one good thing a week for someone else. He turns devastating odds into a personal mission to live a good life.

In his own voice, this is James’s journey as a promising NCAA Division One golfer trying to save the life of the next child. Along the way he falls in love and learns about the power of family.

“James just wants to be normal.” –Mecklin Ragan

Each year 175,000 children are diagnosed with Pediatric Cancers. The kids who suffer with this disease are typically otherwise healthy and athletic kids. Yet tragically cancer is the second leading cause of death in children ages 1-14, exceeded only by accidents.

Pediatric cancer researchers can’t get access to the most promising cancer drugs being studied only for adults. Before promising new drugs are FDA approved, companies rarely start pediatric trials. By championing the voices of kids with cancer, you can help change this reality.

Until 20 is about the depth of love, and not the length of it.
