Remembering Susan Niebur

Today fellow Washington D.C. blogger Susan Niebur took her last breath after a long, painful, arduous battle with inflammatory breast cancer.

Honor her and take a few minutes to learn about the type of breast cancer, which over 100,000 women are currently struggling with.

Susan wrote this.

The last time I saw Susan was at Blogalicious ’11, where we sat and ate Chef Aaron McCargo Jr.’s Bananas Foster pancakes.

I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to eat Bananas Foster again without thinking of Susan.

Silly? Nah.

My friend Lolli from Food Fun Family has this photo of our table from her October ’11 blog post photo recap.

See Susan, all the way to the left?

What a trooper. She had to wheel up to her room shortly thereafter … the pain was too intense.

And the time before that, I saw Susan at my friend Jodi’s house for #HomeHer11.

It was the night that Susan arrived in The Bloggess’s red dress, and we all took a turn wearing it. Remember?

Susan is inspirational.

If you haven’t read her last living blog post, do it. It will more than move you.

The blog world will miss you immensely, Susan. Courage, power, strength, caring, patience, intelligence, leadership … all of it.

The moon and stars shine brighter tonight.
