Securing Copies for Hospital Library
10 November 2006 | by (Minnesota, United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is excellent and helpful for those dealing with breast cancer.

My friends at my oncology unit recommended that I see the film to further understand the choices and the emotional impact of working with the disease. They have all suggested that a copy of the film (either VHS or DVD) be placed in the hospital library where I volunteer so that others may view the film.

My sister is dealing with breast cancer and doesn't have cable, so this would be the only way that she will see it.

Does anyone know how to secure a legal copy that can be placed in that library? I don't want to record it off the air and then pass it off as legal since that is just plain stealing. I would like to work on this as a gift to all my friends dealing with any form of cancer. We need all the support we can get.

If you know how to accomplish this, you can certainly email me personally.
