"Parenthood" Season 4 : Kristina's Cancer And Other Important Stuff
Just on a side note, I love the Braverman family. We all need our escape from reality and watching the show "Parenthood" is one of my favorite distractions.
I have been extremely tired, it just gets worse and worse. When I am not working or with mom I turn on my Roku and catch up on old seasons of my favorite shows. I need the distraction and who can resist the show "Parenthood".
Season 4 has Kristina Braverman battling breast cancer. For television, I think that they did a fair take on cancer. It is not a real life documentary. It did a good job, touched enough on important events and issues related to treatment, fears, complications of treatment and also how family adapts to these challenges.
I was glued to the tv.
Granted, this tv family is whole. Kristina is not single and wants for nothing. Those of us with cancer or any serious illness have a harder road if we are single.
That being said, if you haven't watched season 4, please do so. I really took advantage of the ability to remotely share with the character, and cry a little. If you are a caregiver or friend of someone with cancer or any life changing, chronic illness, it can improve your empathy.
I never promote tv shows. Not my style. It was nice to have the marathon escape. Chemo again on Tuesday......thank you God for the medical care.
The little joys in life.....
