Barbara's Oral Cancer Storyline nominated for Sentinel for Health Award
The nominations for the 2008 Sentinel for Health Awards were announced earlier this month and As the World Turns is nominated for Barbara's (Colleen Zenk Pinter) oral cancer storyline. The fact that Colleen Zenk Pinter had the same illness in real life made this story extra special for me. One of my favorite moments is the conversation Barbara had with Lucinda (Elizabeth Hubbard) who had cancer herself in 2005 (watch those scenes in the clip above). My only complaint about the story was that the airtime it got was pretty nonexistent.
The awards take place in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 2. For more information go to The Norman Lear Center.
