These news hit me hard.
I have followed her blog since my diagnosis. I exchanged a few emails. I prayed for her.
I saw her from distance in MSKCC in mid January and started to run to meet her. She was being called for labs. I stopped in the middle of the short distance and turn around as I did not know what to say to her. All words seemed superficial and inappropriate.
She did a lot to raise awareness and fought for cure. Exactly as GrouseMan, very wisely as always, said.
Still she is working for that, for us.
Thank you, Julie!
I will pray for her and her family.
