Goodbye Julie Yip-Williams
Julie Yip-Williams who had blogged extensively about her struggle with Stage IV colon cancer passed away on March 19, 2018. Ms. Yip-Williams was blind since her birth in Vietnam. She escaped the country on a fishing boat, received a bachelor’s degree in English and Asian Studies from Williams College, graduated from Harvard Law School, married a white man, and gave birth to two girls. Her blog, which started in 2013 when she was diagnosed with cancer, will turn into a memoir. Random House will publish it later this year or early next year. I am looking forward to reading it.
