My name is Juliet and I have had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Alicia Parlette for just over two years in San Francisco. Several friends had been encouraging Alicia to start a blog or share some updates somewhere about her life; we knew that there was a public interest in her life and writing.
I wish I was writing under happier circumstances but unfortunately Alicia’s health has declined precipitously in the past few days.
We hope this site will serve as a way to bring people together and updated. This will serve as a forum to allow well-wishers to share their thoughts with Alicia and perhaps make a donation to help cover her medical costs.
Given that Alicia is somewhat of a public figure (because of her series in the San Francisco Chronicle), her close friends and family will not be sharing specific health updates. We all appreciate the enthusiasm and interest in her life and health but also kindly request that everyone respect her privacy.
I hope to get as much information as everyone feels comfortable sharing; this is a work in progress so please be patient!
Juliet–I just left you a Facebook message….I think. If you don’t get it, could you call me? Thanks. Jerry Ceppos, dean, Reynolds School of Journalism, UNR, 408 728 0088.
Your story helped me understand and support my friend with his cancer. Please know you have made a difference in many lives by sharing your story.
My positive thoughts and wishes for a recovery are with you. You are a very special person.
