The story begins with Tracy reading how horrible being diagnosed with cancer is, and how it was "going to take away [her] beauty."

You slowly see the progression of chemotherapy as her hair begins to fall out. "Life is unfair."

She finally reads, "It's all beyond my control, and you will never hear me say, 'I am still beautiful.'"

However, when she reads the exact phrases in reverse, the story becomes something incredible: "I am still beautiful, and you will never hear me say, 'It's all beyond my control.'"

"Every day is beautiful, even if life is unfair."

"Don't try to convince me that this disease is going to take away my beauty."

You finally see her getting her first haircut since chemotherapy, and she says, "I'll never forget this feeling."
