Bridget Spence

I discovered Bridget Spence's blog through my involvement with the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure in 2010.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was only 21.  Her breast cancer developed into metastatic cancer, but she battled on.  She became an advocate for the fight against breast cancer, and was very active with Susan G. Komen.

Her blog posts were funny, insightful and hopeful.  I've followed her blog off and on and knew that back in December, Bridget had said her goodbyes and asked everyone to let her go.  I just discovered that she died on April 4 at the age of 29.

The Internet is a funny thing.  It allows our lives to be touched by people we otherwise would never have known.
