It really showed the steps women take going through breast cancer...go through. It shocked and amazed me. Great t.v. movie!!
28 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always wondered about the physical (and emotional) pain that one goes through while trying to beat cancer. Never having dealt with it myself (Praise god!!) I always wondered what kinds of pains and evils one has to overcome. It is truly frightening. I like how this movie is realistic, yet not. The actress Sarah Chalke, from Roseanne, is one of my favorite t.v. actresses. Great movie overall. Better than I had anticipated. If you haven't already seen it, see it!! There is this one part that really got to me. When she says something about her constant vomiting. She said that her and her husband have taken there relationship to a new level. Now the extent of their relationship is him holding her hair for her while she pukes. Her husband is really great through out the entire movie and just wants to help her through it and get through it together. And yet there are times when she pushes him away. He is so sweet though and puts up with a lot. Of course she does as well. They went through hell and back together and that is my favorite part of the movie. God bless any one who has had to deal with such horrors in real life.
