Dear Editor: I’d like to thank you for publishing “Why did I have to get sick” by Carol Powell, (July 5-12).
As soon as I finished reading the article, I translated it into Italian and sent it to my younger brother who lives in Rome, Italy, and who, at the age of 57, was diagnosed with stage-four brain cancer.
I’m sure that he gained strength knowing that he is not alone in this world to bear pain and fear.
He confessed that he is aware that he doesn’t have such a rare disease as Ms. Powell has but, like her, he admits that with God everything is possible, including the recovering of his health.
Thank you again and Merry Christmas to you and the staff of The Tablet!
