Fortunately I have no experience with this so far...
5 September 2018 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

... for one, no cancer (yet), for another reason my hair looks like something that would grow on a chia pet. Two sisters on Long Island who own a beauty shop reserve one day a month to cater exclusively to cancer patients. They can have their heads shaved in preparation for chemotherapy so they don't just have to watch it drop out, and they can do so in a supportive environment.

The story shifts very quickly from the two sisters to two particular patients, very different in background and age, but alike in their struggle with breast cancer. The younger woman fears that her cancer treatment will put the brakes on her and her husband's efforts to adopt a child they have been fostering. The other woman is an older (age 59) African American who has been married to her husband for forty years and has been dealing with metastatic breast cancer for 17 years - and she is tired of it. Her husband feels let down by God because so many people in their church said God would heal her, but the struggle just goes on.

It's a short film - just about 40 minutes in length, but it was a really good film about women having to not only face their own mortality, but having to face a disease that changes their view of their own body and changes their relationships with their families, sometimes for the worse.

There was a segment that made me smile involving a couple that appeared to be in their 60s that were very open about discussing their avid sex lives after cancer.

This is well worth your time.
