From across the blogosphere, and actually, across the world, bloggers have joined together to show support for one of our own. Yesterday, Susan Niebur (WhyMommy), a former DC Metro Moms contributor, who blogs at Toddler Planet, Mothers with Cancer and Women in Planetary Science, began Round Two of her battle with inflammatory breast cancer by having cancerous lymph nodes removed.
Susan is an astrophysicist, space scientist, writer, advocate, mom to two boys and friend. Jean, of Stimeyland, wanted to organize a show of support and love for Susan, but wanted it to be a day of science, not a day of cancer.
And thus, the Team WhyMommy Virtual Science Fair was born. Bloggers from China to New Zealand and across the Americas took on the task of science and wrote about it, turning Susan's love of science into our own little science of love.
