About the Author
In 2013 Pancreatic Cancer took Susan Fielder’s much-loved husband Dan Mears. Years earlier her mother, Guynelle passed suddenly and during that same year, a little girl, named Jennifer, who was Susan's own daughter, lost her battle with Leukemia. Most would understand if Susan curled up in a ball, wrapped in grief. But, that is not the Susan Fielder way. Instead, Susan’s initial thought was “how can I help other people knowing what I know now.” Your Living Legacy is the result. A musician/song writer, artist, poet, designer, writer, and highly successful business woman, Susan is courageous, innovative, creative, energetic and committed. A walk through her world is an exciting journey revealing a passionate woman inspired by art and sustained by her empathy for others. Susan designed My Living Legacy as an easy to use guidebook to create a personal journal to guide loved ones in making essential, often difficult, decisions. It is her hope “that the anguish of others will be diminished through the use of this journal.” Susan believes, “If you don’t write it down, it won’t get passed down.” Susan Fielder is the Founder of Susan Fielder & Associates, Inc., a sales promotion/marketing consultancy in San Diego. She served on the Board of Directors for the UC San Diego Sulpizio Cardiovascular Center, is a past judge for The Finest Service Awards for the San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau, a graduate of San Diego’s LEAD program, past member of the Women Presidents’ Organization and a winner of the San Diego Business Journal’s Woman of the Year Marketing Award as well as Woman of the Year for the Leukemia Society. But, all these accomplishments take a back seat to her devotion to supporting the treatment and cure of Pancreatic Cancer, which takes over 50,000 lives a year. Her passion guided her to create a new venture called iPlaid (standing for Intuitive Passion Launches an Inner Discovery). She invites you to join her on her quest by viewing her websites www.susanfielderart.com and www.iplaid.org and www.shopvida and search for Susan Fielder, where a portion of all sales go to generate revenue for pancreatic cancer researchers who are on the path to a cure. Susan welcomes any suggestions and ideas to make a difference.

Your beautiful book, My Living Legacy, was waiting in the mail for us to pick up at the Post Office this morning. We arrived back home late yesterday from our trip to the Manitoulin Island.
I just finished going through it (with care) and all I can think to say is: WOW! Your inspired thought for this work is beautifully expressed in its execution. The careful thought that went into it, the excellent research that you undertook, and the admirable writing (I liked the quotes) all add up to a book that I think will be a valuable tool for all thoughtful people to use as we come face-to-face with making those inevitable (and practical) decisions concerning end-of-life matters.
As for a statement concerning legacy? I’m not so sure. For myself, I like the thought expressed by Matshona Dhliwayo, (Canadian philosopher born in Zimbabwe):
“ Let your work speak for itself: If poor, it will remain silent.
If average, it will whisper. If good, it will talk. If great, it will shout.
If genius – it will sing”.
I congratulate you on a work well done. It sings!
Love, Tim Cronley
My Living Legacy is that exclamation point to a life well-lived.
