A note from your blog host, Professor Meghan Fair:

I just read this article about elite runner Gabrielle Grunewald, who passed away this June after she began fighting cancer while in college. Shortly before she died, Gabby expressed a kind of “This I Believe” statement that resonates deeply with me:

“Being brave, for me, means not giving up on the things that make me feel alive,” she wrote on the website of her cancer research foundation.” (New York Times, June 12 2019).
