The story of Bryce Newman is a riveting and inspirational one. So much so that a film called “Miracle At Manchester” was fully based off of the trials he overcame as a promising high school athlete turned cancer survivor. Executive Produced by San Diego magnate, Doug Manchester and Produced by Bryce and Rick Newman in conjunction with JCFilms, “Miracle At Manchester” will be premiering at the Legacy Resort and Spa on December 3rd in San Diego.
The film boasts an all-star veteran cast of Dean Cain, Daniel Roebuck and Eddie McClintock. It also welcomes young up-and-coming actor Nick Avila who plays the character of Miles Himmel. The film served as Eddie McClintock’s directorial debut and composer Emmanuel Segarra’s Feature debut.
Principle photography took place across San Diego, CA in April of 2022.
“While “Miracle At Manchester” in itself is a wonderful story, the goal behind the film is also one of great merit. While battling for his own life against brain cancer, Bryce’s selflessness raised over $40,000 dollars for pediatric brain cancer over his high school career. But that wasn’t enough for Bryce. With the help of this movie Bryce is on to bigger ways of helping pediatric cancer patients in their journey from treatment to cure.
While Bryce was battling cancer he found it very difficult to educate himself regarding his disease along with what holistic ways, like nutrition, on how to fight the disease. So he wanted to educate himself on both conventional and natural ways to beat cancer. He also found his long stretches of hospital time very boring ad the hospital have the same games etc… each time he stayed.
So Bryce founded the Miracle at Manchester Foundation in which their mission statement is to put a pre-loaded tablet with both nutritional and educational software along with age appropriate games in each newly diagnosed cancer patient in the United States.
“Miracle At Manchester” will be available for online streaming in early 2023.
