The Premier


I could not be more proud to be a part of this series! I CAN NOT WAIT for you to see these souls, their stories, this amazingness. I am exhausted, my brain is killing me. We were up visiting with everyone from the premier until just past midnight. So I drugged myself and woke up at noon. That's laughable in itself! I never do that! My head has been splitting since I woke up, so I'm still in bed trying to see what I can take to not make my head feel like it's gelatinizing. I don't think I even made sense when with what I just wrote. The pressure in my head brings me back to the three different surgery experiences. Frick if I'm not losing my mind in pain.

Enough of my complaining. You guys, Justin & his dad Sam Baldoni, Ahmed and Farhoud and the whole Wayfarer family who produced this series have been so gracious. This experience has been more than a dream, more than a gift, more than we could ever have asked for. They produced these stories with pure grace, and truth, showcasing our individual stories perfectly. You will be uplifted, and inspired by these people. I can't even believe, I am not worthy, that I am included in this caliber of humans. Please share the information about this series, watching their stories has completely changed my life!!! I want that for you too!!!

I had reservations, very nervous as the premier and airing of the show neared, unsure if it would depict us accurately, but of the 18 minutes that I've seen so far, it is better than I could have anticipated. Just beautiful. The first episodes air on the CW tonight at 9:00 pm, then again at the same time tomorrow and my episode will be Friday night. I. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

We have a viewing party tonight in Santa Monica, which should show the full episodes, I believe, while you all will be able to watch the first two episodes. That should be Darth Vader, and Claire. I swear, you will LOVE it!!


Okay, Jess, shut it down and rest. Love you all, and thank you for spreading the word. Although the name My Last Days suck, it does not depict these souls whatsoever - you will be happily surprised. Justin did not disappoint!!

  1. That first episode was epic. I wasn't sure about everything. I believe Hollywood can ruin stuff. But, you are correct, tonight's episode was incredible. I didn't expect to be that moved. If tonight's episode is an example of the next two episodes, then I am all in.

    1. Ha! You made me laugh out loud! I can see your hesitation, or reservations, or whatever you want to call it, but I'm so pleased you gave it a chance! And that you liked it. I loved it too - every episode. And there's longer versions online which is great because it gives more details and backstory. Thank you for taking a chance on the show! :)

    Just had to let you know after computer and TV time (I'm not technically inclined) I was able to find your program and it is on TV on Channel 5.1 at 9:00PM! I'll be watching your new friend's tonight and so excited to see you tomorrow night! I haven't been this excited since we talked on the phone a couple years ago! I must say that every single person in the picture above looks like a winner and a survivor to me! And I will keep them all in my prayers! Please tell the Director to change the title, as it makes me cry every time I see it!!! All my Love to You and the other Stars!!! I'll be watching!!! Love You, "So Cal" Patti

    1. Thank you for praying for all of my new friends - they are all exactly who they are, raw, real, full of depth, and grace. The title does definitely suck, but the episodes were anything but and I'll take a crappy title but quality show any day. :) Love you so much! xoxoxo

  5. Loved the episode! I've been following your blog/journey for years now, but have never posted. It was so cool to finally put a voice to your words if that makes sense. I was in tears by the end, the two of you are such a beautiful and amazing couple. I wish you both all the happiness in the world. <3

    1. You're so sweet! Thank you for commenting, for supporting me through the years, even though I had no idea. :) I'm so pleased to get to share more of our back story, and to do it via video was very cool. And for people to see the man behind the woman, because clearly he is one of the most genuine, loving men. I am so lucky to have such a strong support system - and how cute are my parents?! Ha. Anyway, thank you, I appreciate your love and support, it means so much to me. xoxo

  6. We echo what has been posted. You both are an amazing and beautiful couple. Thank you for sharing your joys and your raw emotions. We are sure you have all touched so many more lives than you already have in your blog. Yes, tears and laughter in watching all of you. As parents your Dad touched our hearts & as the spouse of a brain tumor survivor husband we broke down sobbing when Dan spoke. You are so beautiful inside & out and your smile & laugh are so full and joyful. How could we not be blessed by your sharing. Yes yes yes, we too wish you all the happiness in the world. Daily you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

    1. Thank you! I hope so, I have had so many people touch my heart, so when I can help pass it on, it gives me great honor! Since you guys have been touched by the disease, you know exactly what it's like. There's all these hidden moments in life, that rarely get shared, I was just lucky enough to get to hear how Danny thinks and feels, and my parents, their fears and hopes. I am a very fortunate person to have this love and support. It was hard for me to watch too, but it's a beautiful, raw look at our lives that I am so thrilled to have. Thank you for loving us, for supporting us, and for taking the time to comment so that I would know too. xoxo
