In Memory: Susan Niebur
Here are some comments from Susan’s Bloganthropy Award nomination form:
I cannot think of another member of the blogging community who has done so much to advocate and educate thousands upon thousands of readers about cancer, breast cancer and inflammatory breast cancer.
And she has done it all through fighting the disease FOUR TIMES. She has never let up her battle or her advocacy, even when going through chemo numerous times, radiation, multiple surgeries.
She has worked to increase awareness about lymphedema and obtain important lymphedema sleeves to survivors – as they are usually not covered by health insurance.
She lobbies and sweats and toils for more research, more awareness, more sensitivity for survivors and patients….usually as a patient herself.
Susan Niebur is my hero. And today she just put up a new mantra on her blog, as she gears up to battle cancer again with new treatments and tactics: “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– you will be missed, but you will not be forgotten.
