    She hasn't blogged in weeks. One of her first and only posts talked about her struggle to write in the new (for her) format. Do you know more than you are saying, or did I miss something on that link?

    I hope for the best.

    JD,

    The 3/25 post talked about how the chemo wasn't working, that she had tumors in her lungs and glutes, and that they were growing. Everything about it was depressing. I'm crossing my fingers that something experimental can work, but we all know what a shot in the dark that is.

    Still a bit of a leap to "it's not looking good." Especially when we're talking about Cancer.

    She has a form of cancer she's been told is incurable. They've Rolodexed their way through an array of approaches, and the tumors have spread and grown, and she's looking at getting experimental trials, and, oh, she isn't posting often.

    I'd say it's not looking good.

    I didn't say it was hopeless. But it damn sure isn't looking good, as sad as it is to say.

    And for those who haven't read the whole "Alicia's Story" series, you must.

    It has been two months since her last post on her blog. Do any of our Bay area SportsJournalists.com members know how she is doing?

    Bump. Help, anyone? I don't know about you, but I've become rather emotionally invested in her journey.

    Thanks for letting us know. That one made me feel a little better, at least about her battle.

    Monty, you think you might could re-word the title for those who stumble upon it now?
