Tell me why

I’m going to take a small step back from tech blogging and enter cancer blogging mode again to tell you about the amazing people in the blogging and social media community I discovered after Shannon’s diagnosis. It has been a long hard recovery for both of us, but nothing compares to the stories of the many brave women and their families I have discovered in the last year and a half. Here is one of them.

Susan Niebur, aka Toddler Planet aka WhyMommy, is an amazing woman. She has gone through and is still going through so much as she battles metastatic breast cancer that it puts my wife’s advanced, yet still treatable, cancer in perspective. Susan may not have much more time on this planet left, but I would be remiss if I didn’t pause to say thank you. Thank you for being a source of comfort, humor, and even hope during our time of need. You made us realize that life is what you make it, no matter what crap gets thrown at you. Live your life. Love those around you. And never lose your sense of humor.

Susan, thank you from the bottom of my heart. Keep fighting and know that your blogging family is behind you 100%.
