In Nov. 2002, New Orleanian Christie Buckner wrote a Gambit cover story about her diagnosis and battle with ovarian cancer. Buckner died last Thursday at the age of 39 after a nine-year struggle with the disease, which is the fifth leading cancer killer among American women. We've had several inquiries about republishing or making Christie's essay available to family, friends and the public. You can find it here.
