News (November 28, 1997)

News from the Webmaster

I have good news and bad news.

The bad news is that, Beverly Wilson, the heart and soul of this resource, has been fighting a life threatening case of cancer since early 1997. That is the reason the website has gone largely unattended over the last several months. Beverly has a great attitude and a positive outlook, but the fight for her life has taken away the focused energy necessary to keep building the website. Right now, Beverly is undergoing a bone marrow transplant at the North Carolina Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem, NC. I know that she would appreciate your thoughts and prayers. Anyone that cares to send her a card, should do so care of the address at the top of this page.

The good news is that Beverly is responding to treatment.

Until she is able is take the website back on, I will be reading email that passes through or on its way to Beverly. I probably will not be able to provide responses on an dependable basis; on the other hand, every once in a while, I can deliver the email to Beverly. We anticipate that she will be recuperating for several weeks. Early next year, she will undergo a second bone marrow transplant, so it may be a few months before she joins us again. As a gesture of hopefulness and support I have redesigned the website to make it easier to navigate and update. The new design will allow for growth to happen more readily than the previous version. I am hoping that the community of Basketmakers and Herbalists will contribute tons of info for this website while Beverly is recuperating. I can say with certainty that she would be touched to see that you had written or contributed something to help keep the site alive and growing.

If you need more information, please contact me at

Many thanks for your support and prayers,
Lewis Downey(webmaster)
