The Associated Press profiles Steven Mackin

An AP article by reporter Laurel Fantauzzo on people who have blogged about their struggle with potentially terminal illnesses has just been posted online (click on "Blogging at Life's End").

It has a brief profile of Steven Mackin, about whom we have written in the past, who died on October 28th of last year after battling a rare type of cancer called Ewing Sarcoma.

Of his LiveJournal, his sister Shannon says "It was one of the most precious gifts that we ever had... We know what he was thinking."

Many would also say that it helps us never to forget such an amazing guy. Thanks Laurel for thinking about Steven when you wrote the article.
