A Revelation

Dear Mary,

Your words spoke to me most profoundly several years ago as I was working on a writing project with cancer victims and their caregivers at the Loran Smith Center for Cancer Support in Athens, Georgia.

One of the participants read your poem "When Death Comes" and, at that moment, everyone in the room experienced a revelation. Cancer can be "like the hungry bear in autumn," but the important thing is to be a "lion of courage," "a bride married to amazement."

Thank you for providing that revelation.
