Alicia -

In 2005, I started reading Alicia's words in the SF Chronicle. She was a young woman who had been hired as a copy editor who then learned she had a rare form of cancer. She is now 28 and her journey in this form is nearing an end. We don't know why some of us are given many years here and others fewer, but Alicia with her few years has been a beautiful beacon for many.
