"..How and If You Truly Were Ever Alive"

Dr Jerri Nielsen FitzGerald, famous for diagnosing and treating her own breast cancer from the South Pole, is gone. The Times quotes from an e-mail she sent to her parents while she was there:

More and more as I am here and see what life really is, I understand that it is not when or how you die but how and if you truly were ever alive.
You will be well remembered, Dr FitzGerald.
