The February/March 2014 issue was very inspiring. I was awed by the story of Tracy Dixon-Salazar (“A Mother's Love,” For a mother (or any parent) to earn a Ph.D. to treat her daughter's seizures leaves me almost speechless. As for Richard Smolev's “Speak Up” essay about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (“What We Gain by Giving Up,” what a wonderful way of looking at his health aides. It's true: where does this compassion come from? I used to bathe my mother, but to bathe and care so thoughtfully for a stranger?

Thank you for an excellent issue. I am one of the “lucky” ones—I only have daily migraines.
