My Sister’s Keeper” is an exquisite example of humanity’s desperate attempt to save their physical life. 

Every human soul comes to this earth with a purpose, often unaware of what that purpose is, but deep down there is a tugging of the human mind and body to follow that journey from within.

What is your purpose?

Each person’s purpose is unique to them and I believe agree to long before they enter the human body.  Our purpose sets the course of our life and all others that we touch.  I believe we come together in our relationships for the purpose of assisting ourselves and others to really remember who we are and why we have come here.  We are waking each other up to our true essence.

Each of our experiences are moments for us to learn and remember the God within and the love and power we really are.

Anna’s words of wisdom are an inspiration to all of us.

Anna came into the world via in vitro fertilization, so that she would be a genetic match for her older sister Kate. Kate, the eldest daughter of the Fitzgerald family, was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia when she was 2 years.   When  Anna was born, her cord blood was donated to her sister, but when the leukemia returned, she then had to donate blood and bone marrow.

When Kate’s kidneys fail, Anna is expected to donate one of her own.  Isn’t this her purpose for being born?

Anna’s parents made the decision to create Anna for the purpose of saving Kate.

Whose purpose is it?  Who really has control over our purpose?

The enormity of these questions, answers and individual decisions is played out in this amazing drama, My Sister’s Keeper.  This is a story of a family struggling through the devastation of cancer.

Because cancer touches every aspect of life.  Every relationship is affected and often challenged.  Every feeling and emotion possible is present.  Finances, school, careers, decision making, home duties, spiritual life, etc. are all touched some times positively and sometimes negatively through a tragedy.

Throughout this story we see how these tough life choices affect each individual of the family.  Mom and dad have different viewpoints and needs and they struggle to keep their relationship together.  While the sole brother of the family seems to disappear in the background.

Cancer or any loss or tragedy can tear a family apart.
