Valarie Harper has supposedly been told she has months to live with brain cancer and she is appearing on Dancing With the Stars. For some reason, I am finding this disturbing. I am not sure why, but it feels like she is presenting a false image of what most cancer patients go through. Most days, I feel horrendous and there she is looking 25 years younger than she is and dancing 8 hrs. a day??? So, I feel like people are looking at me thinking that I am faking or something. I can't put my finger on why this is disturbing me, but it is. Maybe because she is cracking jokes about terminsl cancer and it is hitting too close to home? Anyone else bothered at all by this? Maybe I am just being too sensitive.
