I think this whole story line has been tremendous for breast cancer awareness, but I hope the general public does not take their cue from the Reva character on how to handle it as far as telling family about their cancer.
Don't get me wrong, I love the Reva character, but this has got to be the most selfish thing she has ever done. She is not protecting her family, she is denying them the time to spend with her, if by chance her character dies, (which she is not because I think I read she did sign a new contract),look at the time the family can never get back.
I'm ready for her to quit playing the dieing martyr and get back to face the music for her actions in taking off in the first place. I am not buying the whole "I did it for Josh so he would not put his project on hold" thing. The man has worked very little on his project in the last few weeks, he has been too busy rushing off to help the maiden in distress (Cassie) to work :-)
