Based on a true story and memoir under the same name. With so many things going good in her life-great husband and friends, wonderful family, dream job-the last thing 27-year-old Geralyn Lucas expects is to be diagnosed with breast cancer. While having fear and doubts, Geralyn finds self-acceptance by relying on courage, humor, and her red lipstick. Written by r2k443

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!
