The Fault In Our Stars Part 2
This storyboard does not have a description.
Hazel was shaped to be in the heroic position when she was thirteen years old. At thirteen she was diagnosed with lung cancer and then later developed thyroid cancer. She has been destined to beat the cancer and fight as hard as she can for her life while still trying to enjoy it. Her friends, family, and medical support team have all helped her follow her destiny by encouraging her and helping her to keep fighting and doing whatever they can to help her get better. She is currently embracing her destiny by trying her hardest to get keep her cancer from getting any worse while still enjoying life. "We had a big Cancer Team Meeting a couple days later. Every so often, a bunch of doctors and social workers and physical therapists and whoever else got together around a big table in a conference room and discussed my situation." (P. 114)
Hazel is faced with the chance of dying at any given moment. She is supposed to learn many different things from her journey. The most important being that she should not let cancer control her life and keep her from having relationships with people. She should also learn that she can't control who loves her and who she hurts. I think it will take a while for her to be successful. ""Your cancer is not going away, Hazel. But we've seen people live with your level of tumor penetration for a long time." (I did not ask what constituted a long time. I'd made that mistake before." (P. 115).
Hazel is a sixteen year old girl that has short brown hair. She has an oxygen tank that she has to wheel with her, everywhere she goes. Because of her cancer, she has mild depression that causes some problems in her life. She also doesn't want to hurt anybody, so she closes herself off and doesn't let herself love Augustus back, even though she knows inside that she really does like him a lot. She is hurting herself and Augustus by closing herself off and by doing so she is making everything harder. Hazel also hates hurting her parents but knows there is nothing she can do about it as this quote shows. "I hated hurting him. Most of the time, I could forget about it, but the inexorable truth is this: They might be glad to have me around, but I was the alpha and omega of my parents' suffering." (P. 116).
The journey is harder than it should be because Hazel doesn't realize that she needs to let others help her and love her to move through her life. Gus is a temptation for her because she really likes him and he really likes her, but she doesn't want to hurt him. Since she has cancer, she doesn't know how long she has left and so she tries her hardest to stay away from him but he makes it hard to do so. ""I'm in love with you," he said quietly. "Augustus," I said.... It felt like everything was rising up in me, like I was drowning in this weirdly painful joy, but I couldn't say it back. I couldn't say anything." (P. 153).
