A heartbreaking essay that she wrote about her son, before she knew she was sick, is here.
Many of you told me privately how much this story touched you. (And readers outside the US expressed shock that the cost of healthcare could turf a dying young mother out of her home.)
I send sincere thanks to all of you who sent Lori (whom I never met) money, or prayers, or warm thoughts for her and for her son. I am confident that none of it was in vain.
UPDATE: Lori's obituary is here.
