    Based on a true story of hope and compassion, THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS will touch your heart and bring home the spirit of the holidays. Austin and Julie Locke are devastated when they learn that their young son, Dax, has been diagnosed with cancer. But with courage, determination and faith, they decide to give Dax a one last Christmas, even if it has to be in October. When the community sees the holiday decorations and learns the heartbreaking truth, what happens next is a miraculous outpouring of caring and support. Starring Candace Cameron Bure (Make It or Break It), Jeanne Neilson (Faith Like Potatoes), George Newbern (Father of the Bride), Erin Bethea (Fireproof) and Matthew West (Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter), THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS is the greatest gift of all.

    Dax Locke was born in June of 2007. He passed away of AML M7 leukemia on December 30, 2009. This movie is his story. Sort of.

    "The Heart of Christmas" begins on Halloween, when a mother is taking her child trick-or-treating only to wander into a Christmas setting. She is told to read a blog and does so. What she finds is Dax's story. For the most part, this movie is not a Christmas movie, though. It is the story of a couple facing quite possibly the worst tragedy they could, the terminal illness that eventually will claim their son. Throughout the film, they spend most of their time at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where Dax undergoes treatment after treatment. But St. Jude is wonderfully supportive, especially in that Dax's parents, Austin and Julie (performed solidly by Eric Jay Beck and Jeanne Nelson), are around others who know what they are going through and who can therefore offer the combination of support, empathy, and understanding that probably isn't readily available in too many places. Ultimately, however, the couple must face the possibility that Dax will not live to see Christmas.

    This film has every chance to be maudlin, and I expect some will indeed find it so. I didn't, though. The script, the cast, and the direction seemed thoroughly heartfelt to me. I suspect that there were some unpleasant moments in the real story that did not make it to the film; Julie and Austin come across as almost perfect, but, as I don't know the real Julie and Austin and as the film does seem sincere, I'm prepared to acknowledge that what we see is an accurate reflection of their good qualities.

    I noted earlier two points. The first is that this film is "sort of" Dax's story. There are clear differences between the truth and the script.

    I highly recommend this movie, please be prepared to cry as it is very very sad. I think it was extra hard for me because I've buried two of my children.

    I thought the actors did a wonderful job with the medical jargin. Although there are quite a few mistakes, like in the movie they say Dax wasn't sick until he was 3 years old in real life he was 13 months old when he fell ill. In one scene the little girl is wearing a bright pink sleeveless jacket. When the camera angle changes she's not wearing it. Then when it changes again she's magically wearing it again. Still the movie is amazing and it's truly touched my heart.

    I love that 5% of the profits from this dvd go to St. Judes but in my opinion it should be alot more.

    Also Amazon is charging $25 for this movie. Go to walmart. I purchased this for $9.96 there just a few days ago

    I had heard about this movie from the people that viewed in certain areas but it wasn't shown here so I decided to buy the DVD. It was a truly touching story and sad but moving story. I was encouraged that people care in this selfish world. I also was moved by the music of Matthew West and have since become a fan. Got a sense of hope of people who are so busy with things and not on each other and then seeing them stop to help a family in crisis. Highly recommend this little sleeper movie based on a true story.
