Alicia -

I have spoken before of Alicia, the young woman who wrote for the SF Chronicle and then got cancer and wrote of her experience with it.

I somehow hadn't realized that she didn't allow chemo into her life as a possibility of a way to heal.  Now, she has and this is her column on it and also her announcement that she is going on disability and won't be writing for the Chronicle anymore, but will have a blog.

I sit with it  and wonder.   There is an article in the New Yorker this week on AIDS and how some healers in Africa are responding to the epidemic with their own herbal solutions.  The article made me wonder if I jumped too quickly to chemo, but I don't think so.  I am surprised that Alicia took so long to come to it and I hope it serves her well.

Here is her last column for now if you are interested.
