The Fault in Our Stars: Support Group Scene
The Fault in Our Stars
To the unmatched delight of hundreds of thousands of preteen girls around the world, they consummate their love in its terminal grip. But more than anything else, it tries on adulthood.

In the support group, Hazel and Augustus make comments about feeling pity for the members who pass away or are in their final stages of the disease, which I believe helps them prepare for when they eventually reach those stages in their disease.
