TV Tonight: Crazy Sexy Cancer

Every so often, a project comes along that's truly inspiring — and not in the treacly, Lifetime Movie sense of the word, but in the sense that I want to get up and do things and live a better life. Crazy Sexy Cancer, a documentary that premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on TLC, looks to be one of those projects.

The documentary tells the story of Kris Carr, a photographer and actress who was diagnosed at age 31 with a rare and incurable form of cancer. Carr turned her diagnosis into a creative outlet, filming each step in her process of coping, seeking conventional and alternative treatments, and talking to other women with similarly difficult diagnoses to see how they survived the day-to-day trials of living with a serious disease. The film's title takes its name from the subject line of the e-mail dispatches Carr sent to friends and family in an effort to prove that no matter what else cancer was taking from her, it wasn't stealing her sense of humor.

You all know I'm a sap, and I figured I would want to cry after watching the trailer. But instead, I felt motivated and even uplifted, truly awed by the approach Carr has taken to her life. Yes, it looks like Crazy Sexy Cancer will have its share of dreary moments. But in the end, the movie looks to be more about healing than sickness and more about life than death. There's more information and another preview if you check out TLC's site.
