Dear Readers,

I was saddened today to learn of the death of Suzanne Herbert. Last October, I met Suzanne at a conference. She seemed familiar; that was because I’d read about her life with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) a few months back in the New York Times. Like some women I’ve known w/ MBC, Suzanne didn’t appear sick. At least not then. She seemed positive, and thoughtful. Energetic, even.

According to the Metastatic Breast Cancer Network, Suzanne lived with metastatic disease for over 7 years. She died last week at age 47.
