Graduate English Student Published in Vanderbilt Journal

Cathy Kelly, a graduate student in the English program, recently had an article titled “Journal 9/9/11” accepted for publication in the Vanderbilt School of Medicine’s journal Tabula Rasa. Kelly was diagnosed with uterine cancer that had metastasized to her lungs in August of 2011. She had surgery within a week and started a very heavy regime of five chemotherapies, two days each week, that lasted through December. Her article is an excerpt from her journal dated three weeks after her surgery and the start of her chemo.
