Today is a momentous day for a fellow WordPress blogger.
Susie of the blog, Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride is about to take down an enemy too many of us, our friends and relatives have battled.
She’s recently been diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer and has decided a double mastectomy was her best option. She’s bravely writing about her experiences in The Boob Report in hopes she can put a positive, humorous spin on cancer while helping others.
This morning she’s going to sit down with cancer in the operating room and have a little chat. Then promptly kick its ass. Demand it vacate the premises immediately —
— “Don’t let the door hit ya on the way out”
We are all here rooting for you and we know you will come back better, stronger and healthier. Keep that sense of humor alive as it will comfort you. As will the love of your family and friends.
And I’ll be sending all my thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes your way today.
Please, promise me you’ll rest and be kind to yourself!
Readers, if you’d like, please leave Susie a message below to boost her spirits and help her smile on her road to recovery. Thank you!

Susie Strong! 🙂
Thank you so much for organizing this!
I don’t know Susie, but indeed, most positive, awesome, magnificent™ and loving thoughts her way.
I take it back, the not knowing Susie part… Of course I know Susie… I’m not a regular reader of hers, but this one hit me like a ton of bricks. Off to her blog I go.
Susie Strong, I like it!!! Cancer won’t know what hit it. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
Susie Strong indeed! The big C had no clue who it was messing with when it landed in Susie’s breast….poooleeese. Susie is being held in a positive light today for healing, strength and peace of mind. You Rock Susie!
Reblogged this on Life With The Top Down and commented:
Take a moment to keep Susie in your positive thoughts today. She has made the brave decision to have a double mastectomy today after finding out that Cancer had made it’s way to her right breast. Susie is a force to be reckoned with, but we all need a little extra love every now and then, so take a moment today to send some to Susie. Susie Strong Rocks On!
Thanks for sharing. Best wishes on her successful fight. Take care, BTG
Hi Susie. I’m a pancreatic cancer survivor, and I can tell you one thing: cancer is a wuss! It’s like the playground bully who is only tough until someone actually stands up to it.
I have a few articles on my blog regarding my process and how I beat cancer’s sorry little ass, if you are interested
Good luck, and best wishes!
My lifelong friend had to make this decision last year as well and she is stronger, cancer free and more fabulous today than ever! Plus, she loves her new boobs – says they haven’t looked this good since high school!:) Sending Susie all the love, support, strength and prayers imaginable! Your laughter will help and heal! Cancer can suck it!!
Best wishes to Susie! As a husband to a woman, son to a different woman and dad to yet another wom…little girl, and a man who just loves boobies, I hate to hear about any woman having to deal with this. I’ll say an extra prayer for your speedy recovery!
Have read and seen several Susie STRONG posts this morning. Wishing the best for Susie and her family.
Go get ’em Suzie!
Just think of how often you will be able to use the phrase, “So, me and Angelina Jolie…….” Sending you positive thoughts, vibes, healing voodoo and all that good stuff. If I could send you lasagna, I’d do that, too!
Sending good thoughts, Susie!
I don’t know Susie, but I wish her all the best!! Sending positive thoughts and prayers her way. I know she’ll beat this cancer. Susie Strong!
Go Susie! Kick some cancer butt!
Susie will indeed kick this cancer’s ass. She is strong, she is brave, she is hilarious. Rock it, Suz!
Susie is such a familiar face in our community. Absolutely, healing thoughts and prayers go your way.
God bless you, Susie.
Sending Susie positive thoughts and healing energy. Hope someday we won’t have to be strong in the face of this enemy because it will be gone, gone, gone.
Praying for peace and healing for Susie today!
I’m gazing out toward the Flatiron mountains where I know Suzie will be hiking again soon. Hugs and power to ya!
She is probably writing a post right now… haze or not!
Ha! I was thinking the same thing, Ted….
I second your request, Susie – promise us you WILL rest at least some of the time!
I know that Susie’s inner strength and her excellent physical fitness will get her through. Her cancer will have met its match and lost the bout. Here’s to a quick and healthy recovery.
Susie, we’re standing in the gap for you, hoping and praying for a speedy recovery!

Thinking of you today Susie and sending you all the positive energy I can! YOU ROCK.
Go Susie! Your humor will beat the pants off of cancer. It’s the only way to win against such a nasty bully. And win you will, to quote Yoda.
Good luck, Susie! Be well!
I wish for you good doctors, excellent nurses, wonderful therapists & personal strength as you fight this courageous battle. My prayers go with you.
Amen and ditto to that. Prayers and healing thoughts coming your way, Susie!
Oooh we were reading each other’s blogs at the same time, DP! Susie is just so kickass.
Wonder twin powers! Deactivate!
(Susie is pretty darn badass, kickass and so is your post)
Even though I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Susie Strong yet, I’m sending positive vibes and a plentitude of smiles to support her in battle. As a survivor of ovarian cancer, I have all the respect in the world for her as she laces up and takes on the Big C, and from your description, it sounds like she is more than ready to kick it to the curb. Go, Susie Strong, go … and just keep on going strong.
Susie, I haven’t read your blog (yet) and don’t know you (ditto), but I already know you’re awesome. Two reasons – 1, you know Darla. 2, I lost my mother-in-law to metastasized breast cancer, and know a lot of ladies who have gone through this disease. Your courage in facing this so bravely is beyond commendable. I know you’ll come through this with flying colours!
Susie needs our prayers. Not so much for a quick recovery, but for the patience to remain still long enough to heal. I’ve got a feeling that as soon as the anesthesia wears off she’ll be prowling, looking for a Wifi outlet to let us know she kicked a$$ and is back on-line.
Susie- kick cancer’s ass!! And be kind and gentle with yourself.
We’re with you Suze! 110%
I don’t know if I’ve ever read Susie’s blog, but I am rooting for her . . . and so touched by the outpouring of love and well wishes. I want to give everyone (except cancer, which I’d grant a kick in the face) a giant hug.
Rock on, Susie.
My Mom had a double mastectomy and that gave her many more healthy years with her family. I wish you all the best, Suzie. (Darla, thanks for sharing this.)
ciao! susie, you rock. stay strong. wishing health, love, and the best energy to you.
Thanks for encouraging Susie. Enjoyed touring your blog.
DARLA! You are amazing. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I had no idea this was going on, but I literally woke up on Friday morning singing like I was going to a five star spa! I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t nervous. I was super happy with tons of energy. It was because of this and all of your prayers. I really believe this is the reason my prognosis it so great!
I am just about to post an update. I am still very out of it so let me know if you find any typos!
It still hurts to type. Who knew chest muscles did so much work? I should have been a 38DDDD instead of a 34 barely B!
Thanks so much again! ****Muah**** Sending lots of positive energy right back atcha!
You are more than welcome, Susie! I am thrilled to know you felt everyone’s positive vibes and energy and love that day. It’ll help you recover all the quicker. (and you didn’t go for the 38DDDD?)
