I just ran across a program on the Biography Channel called "Six Months."
The program is about people living with deadly diseases, one being multiple myeloma. If you’re on the US west coast or central or mountain time, you can still catch tonight’s showing.
There are two more upcoming showings:
Thursday, December 6 3:00am
Saturday, December 15 1:00pm
From the Biography Channel web site:
Six Months: This emotional and heart-wrenching special features the stories of real people who are making the journey through the final months of their lives. After Eric and Janice both receive a terminal diagnosis, they quickly begin to see things from a unique perspective, and they challenge others to examine their own lives for the things that are truly important.
Janice has MM. Eric has a form of sarcoma.
I hope you can see this program. I haven’t found that it’s available on DVD, but if I do, I’ll post details.
This is Janice Chaffee’s web site: http://www.janicechaffee.com/. MM took her life in early 2007. You may remember seeing the notice if you subscribe to Google Alerts.
Be prepared to cry.
Take care, everyone.
