  6. My condolences to Marissa's family and friends. I did not know her personally, just came to know her through this blog. As a young cancer survivor I came to find this blog by accident, searching to find others who shared in the struggle. Marissa was an inspiration, her fighting spirit and unwavering faith was amazing. I consider myself lucky to have come to "know" her and her courage. May your hearts be full of the memories she left you with for a lifetime.

  7. I've been silently following Marissa's story from the beginning, checking in here a few times a month to see how things were going. Such heart breaking news to find today. It was clear to see that she was surrounded by a very loving network of family and friends and my heart goes out to all of you.
