The first time I heard about the Vagina Monologues was when I heard a woman on the radio say that her life had changed forever.
The show, which airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on TBS, is a show that’s all about female voices.
It’s about the pain of being a woman in a male-dominated culture.
I remember thinking, Oh my god.
And then I remembered that I have cancer.
The first day that I saw it, it hurt like hell.
I didn’t have a choice.
When I saw the Vaginas on TV, it was a bit of a shock, because I thought it was kind of ridiculous.
But I saw how the women were there.
I saw their strength and resilience and their courage.
I was impressed by how the show was made by women.
And I was amazed that it was so relatable.
The series was created by and stars Jenna Coleman, who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2015.
The Vagina, which she wrote and stars in, is based on her life and her experience with cancer.
Coleman has always had a positive outlook about her disease.
When she first started getting symptoms, she was determined to find a cure.
She started going to the doctors and the specialists and getting chemo treatments.
But the treatment didn’t work.
When her cancer was diagnosed, she went to a few specialists and one of them said, You know what?
She said, It’s okay.
She had a better outlook.
After two years of chemo, she started to see a doctor again.
She got the first of two treatments: a stem cell transplant.
And she started having the first and only positive results.
I think I was really fortunate to have the first one.
That made me really happy, because she’s a very strong, resilient woman.
And so it was amazing to see her as a person, to see how she was dealing with it.
And for me, that was really motivating.
So when I started talking about my cancer, I saw her first picture of it.
She was standing there with her mom and dad, and they had a big smile on their face.
And they said, No, it’s not the time to go.
They’re not going to give up, and I said, We’ll try it.
They had a great reaction, and that was a huge relief.
But then I went back and did some more tests, and it was clear to me that the cancer had metastasized.
It was spreading like crazy.
And my tumor was just getting bigger and bigger.
So I started looking for other treatments, but they were not working.
And when I went to my doctor, she said, The tumor is growing bigger and larger.
And it’s on my back.
And this is when I thought, I really should be doing something about this.
So she said she would go to my local Planned Parenthood.
So we went there and talked about it.
I had a lot of empathy for her.
I did a lot.
I just wanted to do something about it, to get help.
And what happened is that we started getting cancer screenings.
And we went through them together.
And a few months later, my cancer was gone.
So that was the first time in my life, when I had the chance, that I had this opportunity to talk to a doctor about a treatment that I could actually get.
And that was kind, and powerful, and something that really touched me.
And at the same time, I realized, You don’t have to go into this alone.
There are people out there who care about you, who want to help you, and who want you to succeed.
You don, need to have that support and that comfort.
And there are a lot people who are doing that.
And as a result, a lot more people are seeing their cancer treatment as a way to go to treatment and get help instead of going to surgery.
It doesn’t always go well.
And those people are also kind of there for you.
And you need them.
And the fact that they care about what’s happening in your life and who you are and who’s helping you and who cares about you and what you’re going through, that’s what makes the difference.
And ultimately, you know, the show has made me a better person.
It has really helped me.
It made me stronger.
And, you see, I don’t think of it as a burden or a burden to anybody else.
I mean, it doesn’t bother me.
But for me and for other women, it does make a difference.
There’s an amazing thing that happened.
I am grateful that I was able to do it and to have it happen.
I’m grateful that Jenna was able as well.
It really did change my life.
And because of Jenna, it really
