|Shirili, Mia and Derrick Green|
Please note that that Shirili passed away on June 17,2013.
What a beautiful soul and spirit. She will be sorely missed.
From Shirli's Facebook page on June 17,2013, her husband posted the following: https://www.facebook.com/shirili.green?fref=ts&ref=br_tf
"This message is from Derrick. I would like to thank all who have supported us and been amazing friends during this extremely difficult last few years. Shir lost her battle with cancer today but I am happy that she no longer has to suffer, either from cancer or the treatments. I appreciate all the love and well wishes. Mia and I look forward to you all being a part of our lives for years to come."
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, I hope everyone realizes all they have to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving day. Enclosed is an essay that ran in the Anchorage Daily News this past week. The essay is written by Shirli Green who is currently living with stage 4 terminal cancer. Many of my good friends from Alaska where I lived for twenty years are friends with Shirili and her family, my friend Shani Green brought this heartfelt story to my attention and I really felt driven to share this with as many people as possible. I am also glad to say that this week Shirili accepted my friend invitation on Facebook! Many Thanks to Shirili Green, The Anchorage Daily News and Marc Lester for sharing...
Thank you to Anchorage Daily News and Marc Lester the photographer who documented Shirili's moving essay with his moving photos as well...

In 2007, Shirili Green was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was just 33 years old. After years of treatment, including a double mastectomy, she discovered the cancer had returned in 2011. It spread to her liver and bones. The cancer, stage IV, is terminal. Shiri writes about the experience of living with the knowledge that she's dying... May G-d Bless Shrili and her family... Shiri also narrates the enclosed video documentary of her situation; http://community.adn.com/node/158745

Afterthought, If everyone can say a prayer or some special thoughts for Shirili, doesn't matter what religion you are or are not, miracles do at times happen!
FYI, back in 1980 I served as a photo lab tech for the Anchorage daily news, as well as a weekend photographer.
G-d Bless and Happy Thanksgiving, James "Kimo" Rosen, Publisher-Dakinetalk
