I saw the movie 50/50 today and it is an excellent movie that captures the experience of cancer treatment.

That said, I urge caution in seeing it. I cried all the way through and sobbed in the car. It was cathartic and intense.

I felt compassion for myself, and for those who cared for me. I know there is a place for experience, and there is a place for tears, and I think this movie is so well-done that it needs a rating as to the powerful effect.

I think we are all aware of the passing of Steve Jobs. We are communicating this way because of his vision, power, and passion. Medical treatment gave him extra years, and there is a cost. This movie immerses you in the pain for all involved when a friend or family member is sick and wanting to live.
