There is no “I” in “Team”

Old Mémère’s Mittens

In My Marrow

My older sister, Kelley, graduated high school and moved to Los Angeles for college in August, 2006. By September she knew something was wrong. She was covered in bruises, her gums were swollen and bleeding, and she was so unbelievably tired. She saw her school physician and was immediately sent to the UCLA Medical Center,…
