The Big C

Posted Apr 27 2012 10:10pm
I just watched The big C on Showtime. It's a series I just found by accident. This is the first time I have watched it. From what I can tell it is about a woman with cancer and her husband blogs...

I know he blogs about her cancer. But I am not sure if that is the total content of the blog.

Tonight's episode the couple went on a retreat. They were given crazy orders to carry bags of rocks and dance at the crack of dawn. It was a tests to fight the cancer.

I really enjoyed watching "The big C". I wish I had been found this series sooner. In a strange way it gives me some kind of comfort watching a happy uplifting show when I have a dear friend that has her cancer just returned.

She has just started chemo to start trying to kill off the cancer that has returned after she went to New York to have surgery for a sarcoma. In January the doctors told her she had a 50/50 chance the cancer wold return.

They got entire tumor at time so treatment of radiation or chemo was not advised at that time.

I'm not sure anyone is familiar with sarcoma. I have a cousin that died a few years ago from this terrible cancer.

Sheila's cancer was though to be a pimple... then a cyst on her back. It reality it was the cancer.

Sarcoma is a very fast growing cancer. Probably the most aggressive cancers there is. Everything they tried to do to kill Sheila's cancer just made it angry and more aggressive.

J had her first chemo treatment Friday. I am worried. I just don't want her to suffer. I don't want to loose my friend. She was one of the only ones that tried to  my mom let her go stay with me while I was in the hospital because she was a nurse. ( Well my adopted grandma was coming to the hospital in Charlotte because I such a bad last surgery)
