Well, THAT sucked....

How much does it suck that Dana Reeve died of lung cancer at 44. Here's a woman that stuck by her man after he was paralyzed and did all the hard work of caring for him 24 hours as well as the kids. We'd all love to be that strong...that giving.

Even after he died she still carried the torch for stem-cell research and for spinal cord injury treatments.

Just the heartbreak of going through his death after a decade, you'd think she'd win some kind of god-prize and live a somewhat peaceful life and get to enjoy her children and grandchildren. How about a few years of happiness, and just hanging out with a can of Tab and a bar of 'Special Dark' on the front porch?

So she dies of Lung Cancer and wasnt even a smoker. Retarted. Even I can write a better ending than that. Those kids gotta feel freaking under siege.....

such a tragic end to what seemed such a struggle... like you I figured she'd beat that cancer beast and get to hang out peacefully, enjoying her kids. Just a big ole kick in the teeth if'n ya ask me. I hate that.

Who ever said life was fair?

Every producer of afterschool specials in Hollywood said it, thats who. The one who does the right thing in the face adversity is rewarded, and the dog makes it's way home to lick her face.

You've forgotten all that Television has taught you.

I'm not a religious person. But if I was, I might think God saw how amazing she was and needed her help.

When I heard the news, I was out of town and alone. It was one of the saddest moments I can remember in a long time. So tragic.
