Throughout the last two years, I’ve written occasionally about Erica Murray, a beloved Fletcher student, who died of leukemia this past winter.
The member of the community most affected was probably Josh Newton, a MALD graduate and PhD student who had been Erica’s partner. Trying to grow something positive out of his loss, Josh has planned a major tribute. He’ll be raising funds and awareness — about leukemia and the bone marrow registry — while he pursues some strenuous travel!
You can read about Josh’s original plan, as well as his day-to-day reports, on his website. The Fletcher community is cheering him on! Lots of support in Josh’s guesbook from current and former Fletcherites.
