Great Movie!
1 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a 28 year old woman with breast cancer, currently in chemo...this movie really helped me a lot. It gave me the hope and courage I was searching for. What a great movie, I am reading the book now...You will laugh and cry and laugh again. Sarah Chalke does an amazing job showing the emotions you go through when diagnosed and during treatment. Even if you have never had or don't know anyone with cancer this movie is just plain good! And if you do have cancer this movie is a positive guideline for you or know someone with breast cancer this movie will help you understand what your loved one is feeling emotionally and somewhat physically. Please check it out!

it is a must see!
