Alternative Realities

I met Rachel Heisham Bieri in Missoula, Montana, four months after she had been given a terminal cancer diagnosis. She was forty-five then, only fifteen years older than I was, though she was already a grandmother. Doctors had given her two months to live.

We met through a Facebook hiking group and built a friendship based on outdoor adventures and a shared love of barefoot hiking.
