A year-long regimen of chemotherapy and radiotherapy wasn’t quite what Luke Ryan had in mind when he turned twenty-two. Especially having been through the same rigmarole when he was eleven. Needless to say, Luke is eyeing off thirty-three warily. Clearly there’s only one course of action to take when you’ve been handed two life-threatening diagnoses in twenty-two years: comedy. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Chemo is a warm-hearted and hilarious memoir from someone who has laughed in the face of more adversity than most of us will encounter in a lifetime. Luke’s is a life marked by cancer, not defined by it. These are tales of growing up, getting sick, getting better, getting sick again, dating while bald, partying while on chemo and keeping your semen in the freezer. But, above all, it’s a story about the redemptive power of family when everything else is falling apart.

This is the sometimes sad, sometimes very funny process of dealing with breast cancer from beginning to present. The intent was to handle this diagnosis and treatment with as much humor as possible. This attitude was carried out not only in day-to-day life but included the doctors as well. It is hoped that the responses dealt with here will help someone else who is going through their own trials or assist a loved one with some tips on how to cope.

internal operation. Both can be very unpleasant. I mention this episode here not

The Franken-Coleman campaign saga really begins with the tragic plane crash resulting in the death of Senator Paul Wellstone. That moment provided Norm Coleman his second opportunity for major political reinvention (the first being when he switched parties). Following the tragedy, Coleman shifted gears to run a kinder, gentler series of television ads that hardly mentioned his new opponent, Walter Mondale. Meanwhile, when Republicans accused Democrats of turning the Wellstone memorial service into a carefully choreographed political rally, Franken was outraged. He immediately set upon a mission to unseat Coleman, which ended up with their eventual head-to-head run in 2008. The unprecedented recount and legal drama that ultimately decided the election was an appropriate coda to what had already been an extraordinary Minnesota Senate race. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Senate tells the whole story.

“I’ve been single for so long, I’ve started having sexual fantasies about my vibrator,†? riffs Karla for her captive, cancer-ward audience. The patients—her mother, who’s recovering from surgery for ovarian cancer, and her roommate behind the curtain, aren’t laughing—or even awake—but there’s someone else in the room . . .In Halley Feiffer’s “ painfully irresistible†? (The New York Times) new play, a foul-mouthed twenty-something comedian and a middle-aged man embroiled in a nasty divorce are brought together unexpectedly when their cancer-stricken mothers become roommates in the hospital. Together, this unlikely duo must negotiate some of life’s biggest challenges . . . while making some of the world’s most inappropriate jokes. Can these two very lost people learn to laugh through their pain and lean on each other when all they really want to do is run away?

COMING TO NETFLIX! Mother. Hero. Liar. Killer. How can you tell when all you have is... PIECES OF HER What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all . . . ? Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don’t we? But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she’s been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now she’s been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again. The police want answers and Laura’s innocence is on the line, but she won’t speak to anyone, including her own daughter. Andrea is on a desperate journey following the breadcrumb trail of her mother’s past. And if she can’t uncover the secrets hidden there, there may be no future for either one of them. . . .
