Joanie was born on Aug 24, 1982. She was diagnosed with seizures at 18 months! From that point on her health got a lot worse. She then had testing done and was diagnosed with brain cancer. She had several operations and went into a coma! She was super bright and had a very high I.Q.! She loved big bird! Her doctors, Dr. Marlin & Dr. Ruttman, were the best! Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital took very good care of her and all of us while going through that very difficult time! We are very thankful for all the staff. She fought hard to overcome her cancer but lost her battle June 25, 1985. We love and miss you with all our hearts Joanie!
