Goodbye and Love to Susan/WhyMommy

It is as always with sadness that I tell you we have lost yet another amazing woman to her fight with cancer. Susan aka WhyMommy of Toddler Planet fame lost her battle with IBC (Inflammatory Breast Cancer) on February 6th, 2012.

Susan was and will always be an inspiration to so very many women. Not only did she fight her own battle (through multiple recurrences) but she was also an advocate for woman, a scientist, a renowned blogger, and just all around amazing person. My own experience with her showed her to be helpful, kind, patient, and caring. I feel honored to have known her even the little that I did.

My heart and thoughts go out to her family. Nothing can take away the pain of your loss but know that Susan will be remembered by so very many as the wonderful person she was.

I would like to end with her mantra that is posted on her own blog

"All that survives after our death are publications and people. So look carefully after the words you write, the thoughts and publications you create, and how you love others.  For these are the only things that will remain." ~Susan Niebur
