Local DC Ron Paul activist Nancy Sellers passes

11 Aug

Local DC Ron Paul activist Nancy Sellers passes.

Nancy knew the Pauls (Ron and Carol) from Texas.  She hosted a Ron Paul event on her roof deck at 801 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Penn Quarter (where Geraldine Ferraro, Robert Novak, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan were her neighbors).  From 2008-2010 she was a regular attendee at Ron Paul events and occasionally Reason magazine events.  She was a lovely person, who was one of two local activists who joined me for drinks at a recent “big” birthday, and who watched my cat once when I went away on vacation.

She usually told people very labyrinthine, somewhat off-putting stories about her battles with the medical industry in seeking treatment for unusual and misdiagnosed disorders.  It is unclear if she was seeking adequate treatment as well for her actual cancer.  But she was a good soul.
