Bernadette Fay was a copy editor at the Chronicle with Alicia. Along with another friend, she took Alicia to the ER at UCSF Parnassas early morning April 2.

An excerpt from the article:

On the night she was admitted to the ER, a doctor told Alicia Parlette what a brave lady she was. She let the comment go by, but the second time he said it, she told him: “Well, it’s not like I have a choice.”
