Huh....

Can any person name me even one measley SEXY thing about cancer? In my wildest imagination, I can't think of a thing.

Can anyone enligten me?

At any rate, I thougt it was beautifully filmed and very sensitive to different cancers and different choices. I went in expecting to be irritated, but I wwas not, and I was impressed by the final message learned by Oni, the woman with advanced breast cancer. To live with our cancer and not be in constant battle. Tough concept.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents.....

I was also dubious about the name of the movie.. but I think she felt it was miraculous that she could have cancer and still feel sexy. I really enjoyed the movie and felt it captured so much of the inner and outer cancer experience. I, too, went to Dana-Farber and it really resonated when her family was driving her to Boston. I even recognized some of the rooms she was in. I truly felt that she was describing my life at times, even though I am married and much older than Krista. I hope she remains stable for the next 60 years!!

Just watched it last night. What a great film. It just took me back on how focused you are at the time of diagnosis and the decisions to be made. Just goes to show you that there are so many of us walking around with cancer and many times you wouldn't know it unless we reveal it. I could really relate even though I am quite a bit older than her. I hope she can stay ahead of cancer and I wish her a long life.

We don't have that channel but were recently overnight in a hotel that did. I said exactly what you did: What in the world is sexy about breast cancer? I didn't see the show though.

Kris explained the title on her blog that it wasn't the cancer that was sexy, but the women who were battling it.
I loved the documentary. I hadn't intended to watch the whole thing, but got sucked in and couldn't stop watching.

In the book she said explains the title, here is the excerpt from her book:

"....Cancer connected me to women I would never have met otherise: women who undertood me in a way that on one else could. Some of them even let me film their stories for my documentary, which I named Crazy Sexy Cancer. The name concerned some people at first. Was I being flip, disrespectful, inappropriate? No. I still had a sense of humor, which I wasn't going to amputate just because there suddely was this really serious thing in my life. I didn't want to lose myself. I was still crazy, sexy (sometimes), curious, silly and struggling. Poiking fun at cancer helped me cope with it."
