One Tough Cookie
I think that those who watch this, if you have never had the unfortunate experience of watching a loved one suffer through treatments for cancer, this will paint a very jarring picture. Seeing Farrah without her trademark locks reminded me of my Aunt who ended up shaving her head as well when it starting falling out from chemo. Farrah in all her fragility is a fighter. And to see her lifelong partner Ryan O'Neal - this is clearly a man who is trying to put on a brave front and is scared as hell to live one day without her. To put your body through so many different types of treatments leaving you sick and in pain and yet still having the will to keep moving forward is something to be admired. Not only that, but to document the process is equally brave. I'm not sure I would want cameras rolling with a puke bucket in front of me. Hopefully this documentary will serve to continue to raise awareness for all types of cancer. My aunt passed away after a 10 1/2 year battle with breast cancer this past Christmas. I only hope Farrah's family and friends take up the cause and continue to fight the good fight.
