In ALL WIGGED OUT, Grammy® Award-winner Marcy Marxer uses her renowned musical mastery and eclectic wit, storytelling, and comedy to share her firsthand experiences with breast cancer. Starting with
a funky mammogram in June 2015 and ending shortly after her last chemo pill in spring of 2021, Marxer traces her transition from award-winning virtuosic musician to artist struggling with chemo-induced neuropathy, and her path back to touring musician.

Marcy is joined by partner Cathy Fink, Stacy McMichael (bass) and Janet Cramer (drums). ALL WIGGED OUT not only tells Marcy’s story, but also helps medical professionals, friends, family, and even strangers learn how they can best support those with cancer, all while keeping a sense of humor.

Filmed by the Emmy Award winning HMS Media in Evanston, IL before a live audience. Directed by Tracy Walsh. Run time: 58 minutes.
