My Sister's Keeper


Few nights ago, we watched The Sister's Keeper. A movie that made me cry like 75% of the time when I was watching it.

The Sister's Keeper is a movie about Anna - an 11 year old girl, conceived through Invitro-fertilization. She was purposely conceived to be a donor to her leukemia-stricken sister Kate.

Anna Fitzgerald seeks the successful lawyer Campbell Alexander trying to hire him to earn medical emancipation from her mother Sara that wants Anna to donate her kidney to her sister. She tells the lawyer the story of her family after the discovery that her older sister Kate has had leukemia; how she was conceived by in vitro fertilization to become a donor; and the medical procedures she has been submitted since she was five years old to donate to her sister.

This movie made me cry some more because almost a year ago, we lost Joy (my niece) and she suffered from many complications... she went through dialysis too. I just can picture out the pain the family suffer. The things a mother can and will do just to prolong the life of her sick child. Everything in the movie is very realistic... from pain ... to suffering ... from holding on to family... to finally giving up and letting go...

It is sad but it shows some facts of life....
