In Honor of A Soldier Girl

This beautiful woman is my honorary niece, and first cousin (once removed), Maire C. Kent. She is 23 years old and as of now she lies in a cancer ward at the University of Michigan Hospital system. She is suffering from an incredibly rare form of cancer and has started chemotherapy.

I first encountered this wonderful young woman through this blog: her sister Nora discovered a post I made concerning my grandfather (and their great-grandfather) A. Leo Kent. I met her and her siblings at her wedding last year.

This vivacious and irrepressible young woman now faces the challenge of a lifetime. I just wanted to raise a glass to her, and all her family, as we pull together through the struggle that faces her.

I salute you, Soldier Girl.
