My friend Joanne passed away today from colon cancer.  She was 44 years old, married with 2 young children.  She was diagnosed earlier this year, but was already stage 4 with liver mets.  She was put in hospice care on Saturday, January 15th.  The doctors only gave her 3 days to live, but she lasted longer than they expected.  Cancer takes too many people. 

RIP my dear friend.  Please keep Joanne's family in your prayers.

Thank you for the kind words.  I was super sad when I heard the news last week, but know she's in heaven and in no pain now.  I feel bad for her hubby and children.  :(
