I got the DVD as a present from my aunt.
Just finished watching it and LOVED it.

Shows well how hard it is begin sick and having a sick family member and a child.

Geeeez why do women enjoy things that make them cry ? Give me a good adventure movie anytime. If I wanted to cry I would watch films of congress at work, I use that word ,work, lightly , or old reruns of campaign promises , as they are broken more than hearts....
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

How is the book ending different? My husband who is a big fan of any movie where 10 people are murdered in the first 15 minutes, said he liked the movie but wouldn't watch it again.

In the novel, the girl who is in the process of taking her parents to court, leaves the court house with the lawyer, and they are involved in a car crash, and the donor-girl dies. Since proceedings began, the lawyer has been made her legal guardian, and when the doctors ask if she will donate her kidney to her sister, he says yes.
 
So in the novel, the donor daughter dies and the leukemia sister goes on to live! The ending really took me by surprise.

I agree that the book is much better. Very sad idea though, and I was unsure how I felt about the notion of biologically selecting a donor embryo for the purpose of maintaining an otherwise fatal condition. But, it certainly gives much to consider! I cried and cried for the book's ending. I guess I was upset they changed it for the movie and didn't feel much emotion at the end of the movie. (I was told it had been changed before I saw the movie)

My oldest daughter has kidney disease (no cancer like in the movie) so it really tore at my heart because my youngest daughter will most likely be asked to donate her kidney at a later date.

After my youngest watched the movie she let her sister know that she wouldn't have to worry about her giving her one of her kidneys. So for most the movie was sad, but for me it made me feel very proud.

You have reason to be proud! You've clearly raised two strong, empathic daughters with a lot of love. Good luck to you and all your family! Your story is heart-warming and brought a tear to my eyes!
