I read Bridget’s blog faithfully and delighted in her exuberance, unflinching honesty and good humor.
This beautiful young woman passed away last night before midnight. She was surrounded by her loving family: her husband, her mother and Daisy, her little dog.
Bridget was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer eight years ago when she was 21 years old. She was a college student at the time. In the years that followed she fought with courage, forbearance and an amazingly merciless sense of humor.
Bridget was a tireless activist for cancer fundraising and research, but there was so much more to her life than the disease. She got married to a supporting and loving young man. She was deeply involved with her friends and family. Bridget lived her life with dynamism and delight.
I feel so lucky to have shared Bridget’s story and been a witness to the beauty and fortitude of this lovely young woman.
Rest in peace, sweet angel, I will never forget you!
