Journalist and cancer blogger Leroy Seivers died of his disease on August 15. I found his blog My Cancer toward the end, but went and read it back from it's beginning. I think it was a brave thing for this journalist, who had experienced so much broad band emotion covering wars and disasters all over the world, to share his own final personal journey. The blog, sponsored by NPR, had a tremendous readership, including many people wiht cancer and their families. It was truly a gift of love. I find the obituary article I have referenced a chronicle of a great career and life. Thank you Leroy. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=92028479
