A leukemia patient attempts to end a 20-year feud with her sister to get her bone marrow.
Written by Lena Dunham
|I know you're going to ask me why I can't take dad and Ruth. I don't think so. I've got Hank to think about. I'm not going to move even though he's unhappy there. Of course he's unhappy, if he was happy, he wouldn't be there. Yes, I could have him transferred, I could have the house, I could find work down here. No. Just no. Because I don't want to! I made this decision once already when daddy had his first stroke, I made this decision then, I wasn't going to waste my life. And I don't think you waste yours, of course not. It seems we both made the right decision. I had plans, I had kids, I had a husband. I couldn't come down. Come on say it, say it. You've been saying it a million different ways since I first came down here. You want to tell me what a terrible person I am. That's right, you are nice to me when you want something. And Hank, he thinks you're being nice to him all of a sudden because you...what? Felt an urge? Did he ever get a birthday present from you? How about a card? You ever sent a card to your nephew Hank? You didn't speak to me for twenty years! I took care of my family. I raised two kids all by myself. I never even heard from you people. Now I am finally getting my life together and nobody's going to take it away from me. I can't wait to get out of here.|
