Patient Commando’s reaction to the movie “50/50”

Thanks to Entertainment One Group, Patient Commando received several passes to their latest release 50/50.

We quickly offered the passes through Facebook and Twitter until they were all gone. Yesterday we received the following from fellow Patient Commando, Sean McDermott on his reaction to the film: Today, my daughter Kate and I went to see the movie 50/50. It features a lot of laughter and a heap of Seth Rogans colourful language and pot smoking ways, if you like that…and we did. The movie is a poignant examination of the manner in which family and friends react to chronic/terminal illness. Sometimes I wonder how Kate copes with all this challenge of me, her Dad having an endstage disease On the way out I was thinking how many moments I could relate to, and Kate said to me “that was a good movie for you and I to see together”. I smiled and was grateful for her love and support.” Thank you again to Entertainment One for the opportunity to share this film with our community.
