Annoucing Our Cause: The Susan Niebur IBC Research Fund

by Kate on February 8, 2012

On Monday, February 6, 2012, a local family and an extensive network of friends around the world lost a beautiful, courageous woman. To inflammatory breast cancer.

Inflammatory Breast Cancer is a rare form of breast cancer that presents without a lump. It is not usually detected by mammograms or ultrasounds and requires immediate aggressive treatment. Susan Niebur lived with it for five years, and in that time, she made it her personal quest to inform every woman she could reach of the warning signs.

All Listen to Your Mother productions donate 10% of ticket sales revenue to a local charitable cause. While Susan’s cause, the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Foundation is not local, her legacy is. So a local fundraising effort has been established in Susan’s name.

Listen to Your Mother DC is honored to raise money for the Susan Niebur IBC Research Fund.

In addition to the percentage of ticket sales that will be donated to this fund, we invite everyone who loves Susan – anyone who feels touched by her life and her story – to contribute to this effort. You can do so above. Anything you can give counts – more than you know.

To learn more about Susan and her life, visit her blog, Toddler Planet. To learn more about her cause – our cause, visit the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Foundation. And to further her cause, tell every woman you know about Inflammatory Breast Cancer.

Oh ladies. What an amazing tribute and just the perfect cause.

Tears in my eyes as I read this. OF COURSE this is your cause. This fall, I had been hoping Susan would have had one more turnaround, envisioned her reading, perhaps from a wheelchair, at your LTYM show. But alas it was not to be. Not fair, not fair. What a woman!

SO GLAD you ladies are doing this. I didn’t know Susan but have seen her impact in the last couple of months. Excellent cause.
