Storyline

Robert Portman lost his job, so he can't afford sufficient alimony for his ex, caterer Julie, and their adolescent kids, model student Michael and spoiled screwup Emma. The family pulls together when Emma is diagnosed with life-threatening cancer. Cultured fisherman George Tomich offers Julie true romance, but she gives priority to Emma and refuses to burden him when she's diagnosed with breast cancer herself, which she keeps secret by postponing her treatment until Emma has celebrated her graduation. Written by KGF Vissers

Oh My God
21 June 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Now I may not have all that much knowledge on cancer patients as some people do, I have personally only known one person who has had cancer, but i do believe that this was a good movie. I am only 19 so I have grown up knowing heaps of kids my age abusing or being rude to their parents, and I believe that this movie strikes true in the relationship at home when something tragic happens.

While true that it does not show how much physical pain and suffering a cancer patient may go through, i do believe that it shows the emotional suffering a cancer patients family can go through and i have no hesitation in recommending this movie to anybody who enjoys the Danielle Steel Series or any TV movies that may have come out in this time period.
