Susan Niebur has left the building

This is the blog site of a women who wrote Toddler Planet.  She died today.  Her name was Susan Niebur and she was a mom, an astrophysicist and four time ( I wish it were five) cancer survivor.  I met her at a BlogHer conference, the only one I could afford to go to, and she was amazing to the little noob.  She did nothing but encourage and offer support.

I wish I had kept in better touch with her and now feel a bit tortured that I did not.

I didn't because she was kind of a rockstar and I didn't want to take up her time with stoopid questions.  And now I can't.  And that is what is really stoopid.  I vow not to make this idiot mistake again.

The button above is the site of her blog called Whymommmy and it is a blog about how to parent with cancer.  It talks a lot abut breast cancer and gives a lot of information that I didn't know, and I am pretty well versed in cancer (sadly).

Take a second, do yourself a favor and check her out.  Google her, or type in Toddler Planet, or merely click on the button up top.  This a bad ass woman with intergrity and grit and charm, and we should all live our lives in such a way.
