Earlier this season on the show Parenthood, Kristina was diagnosed with cancer.
(If you haven’t watched last week’s episode yet, you may want to stop reading now.)
Last week, complications arose.
Not long after a chemo treatment, while her immune system was suppressed, Kristina was admitted to the hospital with a severe infection. Suffering from septic shock, Kristina faded in and out of consciousness. In one of her moments of awareness, she asked her husband Adam to get her laptop, because she’s saved something for their kids.
Later in the episode, while she’s asleep, we find Adam watching a moving video that she had recorded for their three kids in case the worst happened. Watch it here:
Video messages can be a powerful expression of love left behind to provide clarity and comfort to friends and family, which is why we here at MyDirectives have embraced the increased ease of recording video to ensure your voice can literally be heard if you are otherwise incapable to speak for yourself.
