You may recall this iconic Occupy Wall Street photo of fellow 99-percenter, Stephanie Sautter. Stephanie is in the final stages of her fight against breast cancer. She had no other options at the time but to delay treatment until she was accepted by Medi-Cal for those with low income.

Stephanie is now in hospice care at her mother's home, and sends a note from her Facebook page:

"I'm going to try and keep my updates up about once a week for everybody. I'm on hospice now at my mom's house, am very tired. These meds I'm on I can barely keep my eyes open to read of all things, so I sleep a lot. I think I'm finally settling into some form of groove. I love you all so much, thank you for all the love, support and energy healings your blasting me with... I am receiving them, no doubt. Lots of beautiful words you've sent me, thank you! At some point when I am no longer able to write updates - I;ll have my mom bust in on a few for me. She's also promised to let you all know when I crossover as well. Any Ideas where I should throw my ashes? She keeps asking me, I have no idea, but am open to just about anywhere. One Love, Event in Process!"

Love and light to you and yours, Stephanie. Your beautiful spirit has made the world a better place.
