“THE LONG GOODBYE”— Death, Grace and Dignity

“The Long Goodbye”

Death, Grace and Dignity

Amos Lassen

Kara Tippetts is a wife and young mother who is dealing with terminal breast cancer. She explores dying with dignity and grace. She struggles through each new breast cancer diagnosis, ending with her untimely and hard to understand death. Her honesty and courage have inspired hundreds of thousands of fellow moms to follow along with Kara through her suffering and eventual death. All one has to do is watch Kara for 30 seconds to realize she was an amazing person with a God-given purpose. Anyone who has experienced loss, pain, or disappointment will relate to Kara, and she will uplift and encourage anyone who dares to watch. No one will be the same after watching this film and hearing her story.

Kara lived fully by giving fully of herself. The film looks at how we live, how we prioritize, how we give and how we withhold who we are. As Kara challenges herself, she challenge others to see past what we hold up as important and find the core of human dignity in living out love. Kara’s courage and authenticity allow her to face her fears.
