My partner of 9 years, Dylana Accolla passed away at home on a dry and sunny Sunday afternoon, September 26, 2010. She was 47. Dylana was an Acupuncturist and herbalist, and has treated hundreds of clients in the Hudson Valley. Her specialty was fertility, supporting cancer treatments, and she was in the early stages of setting up a dedicated Lyme Disease Clinic in Kingston. She was a regular visitor to the Preserve as a hiker, runner, biker and blueberry picker.
In mid-July, Dylana was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. She died 10 weeks later, chemotherapy having proved unsuccessful.
Dylana leaves behind a healthier community of friends and patients, and family who will miss her ever dearly.
There will be a Memorial Service held at the Menla Retreat Center in Phoenicia on Sunday, October 24 at 1:30p for friends and family. If you would like to attend, please drop me a PM. Obituary from Chronogram Magazine
