Fight Like Susan, Give Like Elden

Well as many of you know, I am an avid cyclist. There is nothing so freeing than taking a long bike ride through the countryside. Today however, I am at a loss, and deeply saddened by the loss of a special person I don’t even know. The king of bicycle blogging is Fat Cyclist (aka Elden). His witty, upbeat, and knowledgeable writing style has amassed a huge following over the years. In the recent years, he found out his wife Susan had terminal cancer and he went on a crusade, monikered, “Fight Susan” by the thousands of us who joined him. Elden is an amazing example of the power we all have to make a difference in the lives of others. Through his efforts to deal with the pain of seeing his wife degenerate, and to try and make the ordeal meaningful for Susan and his family, Elden and his team raised an amazing, phenomenal +$520,000 in individual donations to the LiveStrong Challenge. Susan is an inspiration to any who know her story, and I hope you’ll consider taking a moment to read about it, and maybe even make a little difference yourself by donating to LiveStrong.

  1. There are a lot of strong individuals out there. This man and his wife are just an example of the many you will meet thru-out your life. Cherrish them and their lives… and be glad to know them… even those that you don’t know, like these two. Sorry for your loss… sad… but it happens.
