Alicia Parlette, a copy-editor at San Francisco Chronicle, wrote a story about her cancer and San Francisco Chronicle carried it as a seven-part series last week. Here are some excerpts from chapter 1.
On March 2, I found out I had cancer. I was 23 and on my own in San Francisco.
I was also trying to get comfortable with life. Three years earlier, my mom had died of cancer, and I was still learning how to live without her.
Here’s a report on Alicia by ABC News.
PS: This one I found through Dan Gillmor’s blog.
