They said she wouldn’t live two months, so we wrote this about someone else

AUSTIN — When doctors told area woman Alexa Reynolds that she had less than two months to live, something amazing happened: we decided to report about someone much happier instead. Our reporters spoke to Samantha Treebley, 23, who is currently employed, free from serious illness, and expected to live at least another 60 years. “Right now I’m [not the sort of subject who’s going to bum out anyone else, due to my health and general well-being],” said Treebley, who, unlike Reynolds, has a long and happy life ahead of her. “My boyfriend Josh is [likewise free from disease and generally content with how things are going for him] doing pretty well.” As of press time, our decision not to report on Reynolds looks like a pretty damn good call.
