I got a chance to see this show Crazy Sexy Cancer last night that I've heard quite a bit about lately and all the flurry about the show is very well deserved.
"On Valentine's Day 2003, 31-year-old actress/photographer Kris Carr was diagnosed with a rare and incurable cancer. Weeks later, she began filming her story. Turning a seemingly tragic situation into a creative expression, Kris revealed her intimate thoughts, struggles and fears before the camera, sharing her story of survival with courage, strength, and lots of humor. "
While I was watching the show I was talking to my b-friend on the phone, and telling him about the program he said "oh gawd that sounds like it's horribly depressing" but it wasn't it was uplifting actually. As Kris describes in one part that "cancer has not kept her down but has propelled her into living her fullest." Because really if you think about it, In the end we are all dying really...shouldn't we all be living to our fullest?
highly recommend the show if you can catch it. I think I heard something about a book as well.
