  • "In June 2011, Susan Spencer-Wendel learned she had ALS, known in the UK as Motor Neurone Disease: an irreversible condition that systematically destroys the nerves that power the muscles. While Susan cannot stop the rapid decline of her body, and her inevitable death, she refuses to give up on life. After her diagnosis, she began taking special trips: to the Yukon, to see the Northern Lights with her best friend; to Budapest, where she and her husband spent the first two years of their marriage; to Northern California to meet her birth mother; to Cyprus, the home country of the deceased birth father she never met. In this unforgettable memoir, Susan invites readers on her transformational journey, sharing the gratitude and wisdom that guide her."

  • "An autobiography of Susan Spencer-Wendel who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Lou Gehrigs' disease as it is more commonly known."@en
  • "In June 2011, Susan Spencer-Wendel was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a disease that systematically destroys the nerves that power muscles; Susan, forty-five years old and a mother of three, already walks with braces and is losing her ability to speak. Though Susan cannot stop the rapid decline of her body, she refuses to let her life stop before its time. Since her diagnosis, Susan has made sure that every day counts. She is more present than ever in her daily life, and ready to share her strength, determination and spirit. Susan's story began attracting interest when she published a piece in her local paper about a trip she took to see the northern lights following her diagnosis. But one of the most important adventures Susan planned took her to New York City with her fourteen-year-old daughter, Marina. Susan and Marina, both big fans of TLC's Say Yes to the Dress, visited Kleinfeld Bridal, where the two shared the experience of Marina's search for the perfect dress for the wedding Susan will never see. Until I Say Good-Bye is a truly magical story and so much more than one woman's "bucket list." It's a celebration of life, a look into the face of death and an account of the effort we must make to show the people we love and care about how very much they mean to us."@en

She built an outdoor meeting space for friends in her backyard. And she took seven trips with the seven most important people in her life. As her health declined, Susan journeyed to the Yukon, Hungary, the Bahamas, and Cyprus. She took her sons to swim with dolphins, and her teenage daughter, Marina, to Kleinfeld's bridal shop in New York City to see her for the first and last time in a wedding dress.She also wrote this book. No longer able to walk or even to lift her arms, she tapped it out letter by letter on her iPhone using only her right thumb, the last finger still working. However, Until I Say Good-ByeUntil I Say Good-Bye is not only Susan Spencer-Wendel's unforgettable gift to her loved ones?a heartfelt record of their final experiences together?but an offering to all of us: a reminder that "every day is better when it is lived with joy.""@en
