Special thanks to costume designer Diane Crooke, who ID’s the Parenthood fashion each week and shared this video with me.
We found out a few weeks ago that my aunt has breast cancer.
I’m not telling you this because I want you to feel bad for me. I don’t want you to sleep with me, or cheat on your boyfriend. I don’t want you to feel bad that we broke up when you met someone else. (Sidebar, wow Drew, who knew you had it in you?)
I’m telling you this because after years of smugly telling my gynecologist that there was no history of breast cancer in my family, I’m now on the other side. The one that has to ask – no, insist – that I be given a prescription for a mammogram.
My aunt is starting radiation. And chemotherapy. And for the first time in my life, I’m tuned into a drama that exists outside of that little box in my living room.
I know they say that life is stranger than fiction.
They just never tell you that sometimes it’s scarier, too.
