Recent Article about Kim Suozzi, Cryonics, and Alcor in The New York Times

Three years ago this October, Kim Suozzi spoke at the Alcor 2012 Conference about her impending death due to brain cancer and her hopes in cryonics and technology for a second future. I remember it was a remarkable, difficult, and emotional talk and I also remember the applause when she finished speaking. She passed away a few months later and her head with her brain was cryopreserved and stored in liquid nitrogen at the Alcor facility in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The New York Times recently published a lengthy article about Kim that is well worth reading: “A Dying Young Woman’s Hope in Cryonics and a Future.”
