Ellen Reed
Prominent Wiccan author, battling Leukemia

Ellen Cannon Reed, author of many books on Wicca religion and spirituality, has been diagnosed with Leukemia.

Ellen, ill for the last two months and hospitalized twice, has finally been diagnosed with AML Leukemia. She is undergoing a course of chemotherapy, with the hope of 'rebooting' her bone marrow.

Ellen is known to the Wiccan communities for her books "The Witches' Qabalah", "The Witches' Tarot" and "PaganSong." Her most recent, "Heart of Wicca", was inspired by the many conversations she had on her Undernet IRC channel, #witchcraft, where she is much loved as a dear friend and enjoyed as an often-sharp, often-humourous voice of wisdom.

This voice is not yet silent - her new book, "Circle of Isis", an expanded revision of the Llewellyn title "Invocation of the Gods", is due out in Autumn/2K1. In the works are "Preserving the Path", a sequal to "Heart of Wicca", and "Sacred Partners", a book on Wicca for two people. This powerful voice has much left to say. Please pray for her, that she may speak.

Even though you may not realize it I have learned so much from you, so you are my teacher.. even if you may not admit it. So you must get better to teach me more. But, I think is even more important that you get better because you are my friend and I enjoy your company. But even more important, you must get better for yourself because the Goddess is not finished with you yet. May Isis smile upon you and Chris and help you through this ordeal.

UPDATE: The doctors have made it official -- Ellen has beaten the leukemia! She sends her love and appreciation to all of us and believes 100% that her remission was in large part because of the energy and love she has received from her friends and supporters. Thank you all for your time, your prayers and most of all, your caring.

UPDATE: Ellen was released from hospital this morning and is now at home, safe and resting comfortably. She still has a long way to go, but she is no longer in fear for her life. Thank you everyone for your prayers and your love. Ellen truly believes that our prayers and healing energies kept her with us. Dia dhuibh a h-uile.
