One step at a time

few years ago Matthew Snodgrass ’95 was honored at the Birmingham Documentary Contest with the Outstanding Directing Award. According to Matt, however, the real reward came from getting to know the subject of his 20-minute film, a five-year-old cancer patient named Misty DeVault.

He learned about Misty through an article in the Gloucester County Times. Before meeting Misty, Matt knew very little of the disease. The only other cancer patients he had known were a distant relative and a friend of a friend.

Matt contacted Misty and her family about recording their battIe with the disease. The result was a remarkable documentary, One Step at a Time. “It enlightened me,” said Matt explaining his experiences while making the film. “Now I can’t see a cancer patient and not understand what they are going through.”

Matt’s relationship with Misty and her family didn’t end with the final credits of One Step at a Time or with graduation. Matt and his fiancée Mary Bouchard ’95 asked Misty to he a flower girl at their wedding last June.
