Susan's Cancer

Susan shared her story in this special report for the Detroit Free Press in 2010.  Click here to read her story.

Susan Ager has a rare combination of curiosity, depth, compassion, determination and skill that allows her to take what might seem like the most mundane, everyday topics and turn them into reading that keeps you stuck on every word and unable to turn away. Some of her pieces I’ve read two to three times, just for the pure pleasure and to make sure I didn’t miss a single detail.
