Susan Niebur, the author of “Toddler Planet- The Joy of Life After Cancer” was a mother of 2 boys ages 4 & 6 and an astrophysicist. She was an avid blogger and was front and center fighting hand to hand combat for awareness and a treatment for inflammatory breast cancer. IBC is the most deadly form of breast cancer and it often strikes young women in their prime. Less than 30% of all funding for breast cancer research goes to study IBC.
Susan was out to change that and appeared in articles by Parent Magazine, CNN, Health Magazine, Fox 5 news, Blogher, Washington Post, and many others. She touched many lives as shown by her blog. The announcement of her passing was at 6pm today and 3 hours later there are 514 comments to her blog.
