Susie Lindau is one of my favorite bloggers. She’s fun, sassy, adventurous and someday, I’m really going to head out to my favorite state, Colorado, and grab a few Avalanche beers with her and her hubby Danny, and hit the slopes.
Roam About is a relatively silly place, but today, I’d like to take a knee in the name of seriousness. Cancer is an asshole – it has taken away some beloved people in my life – probably the case for majority of people reading. My grandma S. was a breast cancer survivor. At work, we sponsor a breast cancer survivor rowing team whom I had the honor of spending a day with not too long ago…
Susie posted this the other day: The Boob Report
She let her followers know she has stage 1 breast cancer, and is having surgery today (Friday). Her preemptive post emulates her perpetual positive spirit; she’s a survivor (already); a badass – Susie strong like bull.
I’m not a sappy person (at all, really), but this whole blogging thing has introduced me to some great people – people I would, as aforementioned, hang out with given the opportunity. Some of you remind me so much of my own friends and family, it’s like a fucked up cyber extended fam/community thing, and I love it.
You got this, Susie.
