The 11-year-old Native girl with leukemia. (I did a post about her in November.)
She had a couple of weeks of chemo, the prescribed treatment that has a 70-90% cure rate. No treatment = death. Chemo is unpleasant. She didn't like it. She asked her parents to hav… Read full post »
Hope has some neat Facebook pages - Rants&Raves, Buy/Sell/Swap, photos, bulletins, etc. After not getting anywhere trying to lure a professional electrician, I whimpered about it on one of the lists - and within 24 hours a former electrician who still does it on the side was at my place doi… Read full post »

So I've gone… Read full post »

An 11-year-old girl with leukemia wishes not to undergo the discomfort of long-term chemo and her parents have removed her from the hospital and plan to treat her with “traditional” medicine, whatever the hell that might consist of.
Last heard from, she was at some kind of m… Read full post »
“He's dead! He's dead!”
The girl burst into the cabin, hair flying, eyes wide, face pale, lips trembling. I happened to be on hand, interviewing the couple who ran the Pagan festival and, as an aspiring journalist, I made mental notes. The interview so far had been… Read full post »
