“We are heartbroken to say that Gabrielle Burton died on September 3 after valiantly living with stage four pancreatic cancer for fifteen months. Never a sitter, she was actively engaged in life until the end. A month ago, she was working on an update saying that she was going on an experimental cancer drug trial and that she had decided to begin a blog. She prepared entries to roll out over the coming year, and so we will post those here over the course of this upcoming year. Thank you for your support in this time of grief. Mom was always socially engaged, and the GO Campaign has set up Gabrielle Burton Fund for the education of women and girls with GO Girls!, and donations can be made in Gabrielle’s name.”
Don’t Sit Down YetFor the next year I’m writing a blog and book, Don’t Sit Down Yet, about living fully until you die. The title comes from the fact that adult African elephants only sit down when they’re going to die. Are you #NotASitter? Hope you’ll join me.
