Documentary- recent, experimental drug trials, right to try, terminally ill, fda

It's a documentary that was made fairly recently. I watched it two years ago on Comcast under one of their free documentaries. It followed the lives of various terminally ill patients and their respective fights against their illnesses. Some were fighting for experimental/compassionate use drugs, and others were already involved in trials. I remember one older gentleman was wheelchair bound and coached his grandchildren's sports. He was involved in a blind drug trail for his cancer. In the end, he was in the placebo group and passed away not long after the study was over. The researchers had come to his house toward the end of his illness to inform him that he had unfortunately not been receiving the real drug. I cannot find the name of this movie anywhere. Please help!!
