Wonderful movie
27 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When my daughter and I turned on the TV Monday night neither of us had heard about this movie before. Having just lost a very dear friend to breast cancer we decided to watch it. I can't think of anything bad to say about this movie. It was wonderful, very moving but not sappy. Sarah Chalke gave a Emmy worthy performance. We've told anyone that might have missed it the first time to watch when it is on again this Saturday the 28th on Lifetime. It brought back memories both good and bad of our friend that we had lost. The movie shows all the different emotions that a cancer patient goes through in their battle. We especially loved when ever she found one of her angels.
