Merry Maladies

The Merry Maladies were a collection of e-mails that Mary sent to friends and family about her progress on the cancer front, plus detailed lists of whatever food she was eating at the time because, as she put it, “the unexamined cuisine isn’t worth consuming. Or something like that.”

You can browse through the Maladies starting in November of 2005 when her breast cancer made its appearance for the third time up through the final e-mails sent by her and her family in 2010.
