Wonderful news Joanne. We are so looking forward to having you back in Marin. I am away for a few weeks in Australia but the moment I am back I will connect and plan a time to come visit. Meantime hope all goes well with the return to home, and keep us posted. Love and hugs, Jennifer

Wow! What an amazing story and comeback. Iโ€™m so happy for you Joanne. Just truly amazing but then again you are amazing. I guess I should also start thinking about a visit next year and perhaps some hiking. So many things to look forward to. Talk soon. Xoxo


Yippie! See you back in Marin soon.

Fantastic news Joanne about the biopsy, going back home (although I will miss our visits), and looking forward. I am absolutely thrilled for you!

Hi Joanne! In solidarity with you, I am taking a nap and having a milkshake every day. It's the least I can do.
Love and hugs from Southern California!

Joanne -- I'm ecstatic to read that you're out of the hospital and recuperating. Love and best wishes for good news when you get the biopsy! It sounds as if you have the friend network and positive attitude you need to prevail. We will keep beaming love and hope at you from SoCal and around the world. I would drop by if I could, but these posts will have to suffice for now. Hang in there and we'll meet again in 2022 at our class reunion!

So glad that you can laugh at silly parody songs and even post about it on FB. (And on March 4th--the only day of the year that is a command to move onward!) Hang in there. We are all sending you love and healing thoughts. Take it a day at a time and keep laughing!


Good to see you yesterday -- with your new hairstyle (or lack thereof)... and your perfect still look wonderful.

To all Joanne's friends, this is a very hard week for her and she's tired and in pain with side effects.... nevertheless, she still has the SPUNK she's known for.... Sending her Virtual Hugs and LOVE are perfect right now... TEXTING works.

Joanne, just wanted you to know I am thinking of you and sending positive healing thoughts and prayers. Glad to hear from your last message that things were going better than expected. Looking forward to seeing you in Larksburg in June!

Joanne, this is wonderful news to hear how well things are going. Your stoic resignation and warm heart seem to be working in full force on the healing process. I'm unable to get to see you in person, but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and envisioning your return to full force and better than ever! XO Anne

Joanne, sending a big hi from not-so-warm-and-sunny Southern California, where the women are strong, the men are - oh, wait, that's Minnesota! It just FEELS like Minnesota here. (This former Wisconsin farm girl has clearly become a wimp.)
Thinking of you daily, sending hugs and prayers and meditations - covering all the bases. (Glad it is working!)
Love you,
Jo Lynn

We are thinking of you today and I'm sending you good energy for the new marrow cells. We hope to come see you this weekend. I need to check in with Kathy first and then of course with you to see if you are up for it. Hugs and love, Wendie (and Bob)
