We lost another cancer warrior

I found Leroy Sievers' blog right at the time I was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, and have read it ever since. I felt kicked in the gut when I read this yesterday:

Journalist, 'My Cancer' Blogger Leroy Sievers Dies

Rest in peace, brave warrior.

As a physician-survivor, I have appreciated Sievers' candid coverage of his personal struggles. It wasn't always pretty. And I sometimes disagreed with his approach or conclusions about one thing or another.

But Sievers created a place for people to share the good and the bad, the glorious and the shameful sides of survivorship. And in doing so, he encouraged people to talk openly about the difficulties and look harder for better answers.

He leaves a grand legacy of good.
With hope, Wendy
