Extremely Inspiring!!!
25 October 2006 | by (Arkansas) – See all my reviews

This movie reminded me so much of my Mother. Although she wasn't in her 20's when she got breast cancer, she was 38, still under the age of 40. So now myself I have to get a mammogram at the young age of 28. It's a scary feeling for the family to know that your loved one has cancer. This movie goes through every feeling that she had. It really touches you in the heart. Women, young women, and girls...it's never too early to start self-breast exams. Early detection is key to fight this. We caught my Mother's cancer early enough all she had to have was a lumpectomy and radiation. She is closing in on her 5th anniversary of being cancer free. So let's fight the good fight and win this thing.
