The filmmaker, Nina Montee Karp, digs deep into the journey and unearths resources, information, inspiration and hope. This is a film from the heart and the participants share from theirs honestly, with courage, humor, self-love and compassion.
When my late husband was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease, as his caregiver I dug through hundreds of books, articles and websites to help us understand what we were facing, both medically and emotionally. Though the film focuses on breast cancer, it will contribute to anyone on the journey to healing from cancer. I know it would have been a great resource for us.
Nina thoughtfully created a structure that starts at the beginning of the experience which allows survivors to either choose to watch and learn about the entire journey or take it "chapter" by chapter as their journey unfolds, one step at a time. The film along with the additional sources DVD represents information that would take an individual thousands of hours to go through on their own.
I also love that Nina includes the caregivers. As a teen, I became my mother's caregiver and just recently had the chance to share my story in the newly published essay, "The Other Side of Pink" available here on Amazon in the anthology, Tarnished: True Tales of Innocence Lost. Caregivers can be the forgotten ones and have unique perspectives, concerns and stresses. She doesn't let their stories overtake the main focus, but Nina does represent this often silent partner. Doing so helps us recognize the importance of survivors having this kind of support.
If you only buy one resource to help you or your loved one through the experience of cancer, make it this one.
My sister-in-law was recently diagnosed with stage II or III breast cancer. She was in her decision making process when I got the e-mail about the DVD. We decided to get it and split the cost. I watched it first and was so amazed about how much information was given in terms I could understand. I think I was in a fog when I went through my experience and didn't ask too many questions; basically just doing whatever the doctors told me to do.
My sister-in-law opted for a bi-lateral radical mastectomy. There were some cancer cells in the sentinel node so they removed all the nodes on one side. She is recovering from her surgery and will be making some tough decisions in the next couple of weeks regarding chemotherapy and radiation. I encouraged her to watch the DVD before any decisions were made because I really think it will make that process so much easier!!!
I think this DVD is good for anyone; whether they've had cancer or not. Being educated BEFORE you have to go through something traumatic like breast cancer would have made me feel so much better with the decisions that had to be made!
