Editor’s note: The Courier has been following Ashley Bissel in her fight against a rare form of brain cancer. This is the final installment in the series.
Ashley Bissel wears a simple charm bracelet, a chain of loose silver links adorned with a single a accoutrement, a small ribbon of the same metal.
She grasps the tiny charm between her thumb and forefinger, absorbing its smooth texture and savoring the significance.
Every May 15, she plans to add another.
