Alison, your academic and personal impact will last such a long time in so many ways and places. But nothing will replace your energetic can-do attitude or your "full frontal" feminist presence. I will miss you.
God bless you and your family and friends, that's really what life is about. This Wednesday 8/17will be the anniversary of my wife's passing. She also died of Glioblastoma too, sad, but your grace will also be remembered also. Best regards to your family and friends. Howard Mallinger
Beautiful Words Alison. You touched many hearts with your wonderfully positive outlook and grace. You certainly touched mine. xx
To the family of this wonderful woman:
Alison's soul will carry on through her daughter and all those who were fortunate to know her. I am thankful for her having shared her story with so many of us. Her grace and love shined through in every word she wrote. May we all learn to cherish life, family and friends as she did.
I wish her a safe journey and know that heaven will gain what our world lost .
Thank you for this. My beloved, beautiful, brilliant mother entered hospice this month at age 67, after being diagnosed in May. Her strength and fortitude serve her well, but I know it makes it harder for her to accept help now. I'm hoping she sees it as those who want to help see it--a gift to be able to be of the slightest assistance to this woman so many love.
I don't know you but your words is reflection of you soul which is like jowly .
God will never forget some one like you

Homophobia is a bigoted slang created by leftist Statists. It translates to fear of the same, which shows how bigoted and clumsy these agenda driven idiots are!
Whether some one can control behavioral desires does not make any behavioral desire a behavioral virtue. Reproductive systems are their for one reason, and the only phobics are the behaviorally perverted prideful bigots who think their perverted behavior illness is somehow entitled to recognition over other perverted behaviors like incest and bisexual domestic sexual relationship partners.
The left is a fascist collectivist body politic propaganda hammer. Stand up to them or be prepared to get fired and discriminated against for your behavioral viewpoints. They are extremely proud and spiteful!
Title IX and gender segregated sports for women only is fascist! Women aren't about equal opportunity, they are about promoting their own self serving interests!
I will not comment on the identity politics. I admire your unique courage in facing human suffering, instead of taking another way out. I have faith that your courage will be rewarded, and I will continue to pray for you and your family.
beautiful words from a beautiful person. RIP Alison and heartfelt prayers and hugs to Brian and Maybelle and others experiencing this loss
Even in your own struggles with this horrible disease, you were able to use your gift as a journalist down to your last moment to serve others. You are a saint!
Alison, this is after the fact...to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. I hope to catch up with you in heaven.You have had a great life and wonderful with words. May you witness God's continious blessings on your family while you watch on in spirit.

Beautifully said. We lit a candle http://www.fieldofcandles.com/Candle/Profile/54468 for Alison. Light a candle for her, too.
It's been four years since I left Charleston. This still broke open my chest like a cleaver.
Alison was my teacher, mentor, role model and friend. I spent a year living across the street from her. Whenever I would see her and Maybelle outside it brightened my day.
Thank you, Alison, for living extraordinarily and leaving us an immense legacy. You were one of my first heroes. Rest in power.
