A Touching, Infomative Film with a Purpose
28 January 2015 | by Traci-DawnSee all my reviews

Bring tissues to "Someone You Love" because it will be hard to hold back the tears. To be honest, I didn't realize a documentary could engage me on such a deep level from beginning to end. This film takes a medical term such as human papillomavirus and personalizes it, which is vital to educating parents and teens on the importance of getting vaccinated. As a parent of three, my pediatrician began recommending the HPV vaccination as soon as it was available. Fearful of the side effects and unsure it was even necessary, I waited a few years before agreeing to having any of my kids immunized. Eventually I gave in, but it wasn't because I understood the implications of not getting the shots (I'm sure our providers explained it well, but I still hesitated). After seeing "Someone You Love," I'm incredibly relieved my kids are protected. Kudos to the team who produced this film!
