please give your support to Elden and his family

I found out some very sad news yesterday about one of the blogs I follow.

Elden "Fat Cyclist" Nelson's wife, Susan has been fighting cancer for a while now. Last night at 7:25pm her battle ended.

During Susan's fight, Elden turned what was a very funny and entertaining blog into a personal crusade against cancer, raising over $500,000 for the Lance Armstrong foundation - the largest amount raised by a single team. He has also been able to offer some incredible drawings, including the current one for a $9600 Orbea with Shimano's new Di2 electronic shifting setup.

I highly encourage you to go to his website, www.fatcyclist.com to express your sympathy for Susan. Also, if you are able. show your support by contributing to Elden's fight.

From his latest post:

Susan’s part in the battle is over, but she didn’t lose. She led the charge. She showed the rest of us how to fight: with determination, focus, creativity, and outrageous endurance.

Now it’s up to the rest of us to Fight Like Susan.
