Short biography
Alicia Parlette was a journalist and copy editor for the San Francisco Chronicle. She was diagnosed at age 23 with a rare form of cancer called alveolar soft part sarcoma. She began writing a diary of her treatment titled "Alicia's Story," which was published in installments in the Chronicle beginning in June 2005. The first seven installments of the series were published in book form under the same name later that year, and Alicia won the Laxalt Distinguished Writer Award for 2005. In 2007, she announced that she would continue to share her story as a public blog on the Chronicle's website, which continued for several months. She died in 2010 at age 28.
