Even before she became a single mom to Graham and Piper, Sue was known for her indomitable energy and ability to get things done. She'd be up at the crack to exercise, wash her car, plant a garden, hike the East Bay hills, feed chickens, walk her dogs, visit her mom—who was incapacitated by Alzheimer's Disease—work on a freelance project, volunteer at Homeward Bound and follow it all with a dinner party finished off with some amazing dessert that she just whipped up. To have a "Sue Keeley Day" was shorthand among friends for kicking butt and taking names.
And she never got sick. Never.
So it was a shock when in the Fall of 2019 she found herself with stage three colon cancer. She had surgery and began six months of chemotherapy. She actually postponed a celebration of her March birthday so that she could have chemo completely behind her and be able to celebrate with champagne. Unfortunately, within weeks of completing chemo she was diagnosed with malignancies of the peritoneal cavity.
On this site friends can follow Sue's treatment. You can learn what's new, what's coming up, send encouragement and learn what kind of help you might be able to offer. Sue has never met a stranger, so you can imagine how many people are eager to know how her care is proceeding. Please follow along and feel free to add kind thoughts as we go.
NOTE: Donations go directly to Caring Bridge and not to Sue. Please no donations. Thanks.
