Dana Reeve dies of lung cancer at 44

She died last night. It's is so sad. More here and here. I feel terrible for their thirteen-year-old son Will, who lost both parents within 18 months.

Sad indeed. She sang a song at the retirement ceremony for Mark Messier less than 2 months ago (I think Mark and the Reeves were involved in charity work together, as well as friends). It's hard to believe that lung cancer took her life so soon after singing so beautifully.

Yeah. Apparently, right after that performance, she found out that the cancer was more aggressive than originally thought (see this).
