Susan Spencer-Wendel was a writer whose best-selling book Until I Say Goodbye chronicled her fight to live well as she fought Lou Gehrig's disease. She was a well-regarded court reporter for The Palm Beach Post when she first noticed a change in her health in 2009. It would be two years before she was diagnosed, but by then she had made up her mind: she would live her remaining days as best she could, travel the places she dreamed of going and complete a long goodbye to those she loved.
