Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison,

Never in my life have I responded to an article on the internet. I’m not a ‘comment’ kind of person, but I read this a few days ago and it won’t let me go. Had we ever met, I feel like there is much I would have liked to talk to you about. Since that is not possible, I wanted to share something that I hope does not offend you. You ended your story with, “If there’s a heaven, or whatever, I’ll see you there.” In the book of Revelation, God gives the apostle John a vision of heaven. Here’s some of what he said. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away… I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life.” I have a feeling I am one of many who have wondered about your faith and tried to “save your soul” before your days are done. If you’re not a believer, I empathize with the irritation that comments like this can cause. I resisted Christianity for years. As I got older, I realized my views were based on what I wanted to be true, not what is objectively true. God either exists or he doesn’t. Either way, my feelings have nothing to do with it. After a long period of research, reading, talking to folks much wiser than me, etc. I became convinced that Jesus is who He said He is – the Son of God – and that as inexplicable as it seems, His death opened the door to heaven for us - an undeserving people in need of forgiveness. It’s hard to comprehend, but God loves you so much, that he would rather send his Son on a suicide mission to rescue you, rather than spend one day in eternity without you. If, like me, you have been resisting Him, I pray that you give Him a chance. Heaven is real; there are no “ifs” about it. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” It’s obvious that many people love you Alison, but none more than Him. I hope to see you there.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison,
You are a real inspiration to me, Noa, and everyone who is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to meet and get to know you. What you have written is beautiful and moving and will be shared with many people and for many years after you are not on this earth, and we will miss you very much. I feel so thankful to have met and gotten to know you. Love, hugs, and wishes for eternal peace,
Jill

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Dearest Alison,
Was grateful to receive your post from another friend. I immediately shared on FB after reading, asking all to pray to the higher power they hold in their hearts. You will be in mine for a long time.

My friend, William Riddle, PhD, a medical physicist and professor at Vanderbilt, died on June 8 after a 40-year struggle with MS. The important piece, or one I hope is worth saying, is that he experienced much of what you have, especially as his brain didn't respond on command any longer. The difference is significant: you acknowledge life is short and your's may be shorter. Bill never got there and so his loss was especially tragic to me and others because it was unexpected.

Keep telling your story. Your grasp of this situation is magnificent and has made me better just for the reading. I am so sorry that we never met and that your talent, gifts and the amazing woman you seem to be will not benefit me and so many others. What you are doing now - writing, sharing, thanking, surviving - to the best of your ability is so wonderful.

Thanks so much, Susan Siegel

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

I don't know if you'll read this but if you do a stranger from across the country sends you love and comfort. My dad has a brain tumor like yours. I'm so scared about what the future holds but your honesty, bravery and transparency through this has given me comfort. No words can express the grief I feel for you, and your daughter. I share in your pain. Much love and God bless.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

I do not know you. I do not consider you family, friend, lover or such. I do consider you someone I wish I knew. I do wish that whatever time you have left is spent smiling, laughing, kissing, hugging and thanking all those close to you who have lifted you up in someway. Tonight we added you to my son's prayer. He asked who you were-I said "The Princess's Mother". He said I wish I could have met her. I said "Me Too". Until we meet for the first time in Heaven-Please take care.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Mrs. Alison, I did not know you, but your words are so deeply moving. Your article speaks so plainly, yet it depicts the saga of human experience with such raw, tender, bittersweet emotion. The resolute dignity you show in the face of fear and desperation is so powerful, so inspiring - befitting of someone who has fought against the odds her whole life for her causes. Even this close to the end, you painstakingly fought against your sickness and wrote this article. It couldn't silence you; you are a beacon that will not waver, will not be bowed by even the adversity that ends you.

I hope your daughter can read this article and learn who you were as a person. I hope that through the stories of those that knew you, and through your archived work, she can grow up knowing and admiring her brave mother, even without you there. May she have your strength to get her through.

As a young woman, I thank you.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Allison please,please don't give up. I've written a book title "Stress and Depression",The Real Culprits. Theory is all cancers comes from these, because they compromise the immune system greatly. They are not the same,but they work in harmony too overwhelm the system. Stress is a short term dilemma,and is subject to abate on it's,but if it doesn't, then depression sets in.This becomes the medium by which abnormal cells proliferate. Fear makes cancer cells grow. Long story short, there are things you can do.Laughter,touch,happiness produces a very powerful chemical that will put cancer in remission.Please,please lets try this.There is more too my theory,but space is limited. Just don't give up. Start walking and going places, where you see people doing funny things,just hang in there. Have the faith of a mustard seed in me. I'm a first time writer and the book is on hold, until I can find, preferable, someone who has won prizes that will lead them toward "The Noble Prize in Physiology and Medicine, like the Lasker Prize,Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, Tang Prize,etc. I need someone to partner with me on making a medication I have in mind based on my theory noted above. A person who has won the award or someone on the edge of winning would be an ideal person. They would see my theory immediately once I explained it in detail. Mean while hang in there,don't give up.We can live much longer and happier than we are doing in our country. No one should be dying like we are,90-110 isn't no age. Good health and living long is a mind set. The Fins are dying like flies,because they suffer from depression. Darkness maybe a factor,but it doesn't have to be their coffin. Good luck in the endeavors pointed out too you.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

Dear Alison,

I am so sorry for what you have gone through and are going through. I know. I truly know. Im just here to tell you that it will all be alright. You are loved.

You love and you made this earth a better place. All is ok. It is going to be ok. I believe that love never ends. It can not. Love is as real as our human bodies , it never ends, love is seen,felt and grows in ways that we can never fully understand.. Always. Peace.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Dear Alison
Your story touched me; I admire your strength. A thought you expressed really stood out to me: "I don't presume to know what a next life would be like..." This prompted me to pray that you know God's forgiveness: Jesus, Who never sinned, took the punishment we deserve for our sins and gave His very life blood so that we could be forgiven and made right with God. God transferred to Him our sins, and He took the punishment for us as though He were the guilty one. The Bible says that Jesus (who had no sin of his own) became sin for us (who had no righteousness of our own) that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. When we repent of our sin – turn from our own way to God’s way, admitting to Him that we are sinners and need His forgiveness – God forgives us because Jesus paid our sin debt. God then makes us His child and views us as though we were as pure and right as Jesus Christ himself. Jesus’ righteousness is written down on our account, because our sins were written down on Jesus’ account. Because He did this, as a verse in the Bible says, we can be "absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

Reading this column and browsing the comments, I am struck by those who apparently wake up angry and give a thumbs down to the promise of life itself. What a sad commentary, actually, that the ease and anonymity of the Internet creates a stronger and yet more fractured sense of community.

To our correspondent, I simply say, "Thank you and best wishes for your future and that of your daughter, husband and loved ones!"

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison. Thank you for your incredible gift of words and for always standing up for what you believe in, and trying to make the world a better place. It meant so much to me when you defended LGBT students and me when we were going against the bigotry of the SC legislature during the 'Fun Home' debate. You're an incredible woman and have impacted more people than you know. Thank you and we can only try to keep making the world a better place in your honor.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, I don't know how you manage to top yourself every dang time, but you do - your writing is so clear, so beautiful, and so inspiring, much it would seem, like the lady whose zinely friendship I have valued for years. Thank you for the feminist t-shirts that Inky and I both wear with pride. You're a nifty number - always have been, always will be. Love to you (and your mother). Maybelles will ring.
