“TIME OF DEATH”… A REALITY SHOW ON SHOW TIME
During the Fall of 2013, a six episode series followed people who were terminally ill to the conclusion of their lives. (Note that there is a new term being used by some in the medical profession: “advanced illness”). “Maria”, a 48 year old mother of three children is featured in the first five episodes, documenting her struggle with stage four breast cancer. The episodes cover the progression of her disease, the impact of her illness on her children, and the family’s concerns about what will happen to them after she dies. During each episode a second person’s story is told as well. Each episode has lessons on how end of life is handled by different people with a terminal illness.
I found these stories of brave people and their families to be informative, inspiring and touching. Many faced the end with courage and grace.
If you have access to “Show Time” you can watch on demand.
Still available in 2017.
