We Love How This Single Girl Dad Is Turning Tragedy Into Art and Helping Others Along the Way

When “Single Girl Dad” Rob Mor lost his wife at an early age to ovarian cancer, he transformed his grief into art and proved just how intertwined love and grief can be.

The father of a now 5-year-old daughter was inspired to use the power of love to fuel his new creative endeavors and help other people who might be processing their own grief and contemplating finding love again.  

With the new short film that he wrote and produced, Ghosted, Mor keeps his wife’s memory alive and helps to spread awareness on sarcoma research by featuring his own true story. The film follows a widower that is encouraged to download the dating apps and get back into the dating scene after his wife dies, only for his first match to be with his deceased wife.

“I hope this film brings light to those who are experiencing any kind of loss,” Mor said. “I am excited to announce that I have adapted the short to a feature and am currently pitching at Sundance. Wish me luck!”

You can watch the Ghosted short film in the video below, and we also recommend that you check out Mor’s podcasts, Still Single on Apple Podcasts or Spotify, and Single Girl Dad on Apple Podcasts.
