Thank you very much for all who replied to our usenet posting.
The young lady whom I wrote about is Trisha Henry. On
Saturday, 7/20, Angel Martino gave up her Olympic Bronze
medal (the US's first of the Summer Games) to Trisha. Many of
the news networks have been carrying this story of Trisha's
valient efforts to fight her cancer.
Any additional thoughtful emails sent to us will be forwarded
to Trisha though her family in Marietta, Georgia. I'm sure
your messages will be gratefully received by Trisha.
