Hi all. There is a movie I remember watching probably back in the late 60's or early-mid 70's. It was about a teenage girl who had cancer, either leukemia or bone cancer. All I really remember about the movie was that she played the guitar and that she eventually lost her hair and wore a scarf on her head. Plus, of course, she died at the end. I also think it was a made-for-tv movie, but not really sure. I searched the imdb but came up with nothing. I always thought that Kathleen Quinlan starred in it but apparently not. It might of been someone with a similar name. Any help at all would be appreciated. This is driving me nuts!

I believe you are correct, the movie was Sunshine, came out in 1973. Not much to be found on google, but it did star Christina Raines and Cliff De Young. Here is a link to some info:

Sunshine

Sorry all, it's not Sunshine. I remember watching that movie also when I was younger. In the movie I am talking about the girl is a teenager and she lives with her parents, as far as I can remember. I also remember that eventually her cancer spread and she had to get her leg amputated. Any help is and will be appreciated!

Yep, you're right. Got them totally mixed up for some reason. Thanks for the correction. And yes I bawled my eyes out at Love Story!
