I am happy to purchase another copy of Mary Jo's book to share with others. She will always be in my thoughts and her family in my prayers. I once heard it said at a prayer service for a loved one that "her cancer was a gift." While I know this person was simply trying to spin the situation positive, I will never agree with this philosophy. I view cancer as a disease that steals life away from good people. Mary Jo's work on earth was not nearly finished. Her children were robbed of a beautiful, smart and courageous mother. I know that her love and faith will live on through them. This is the "gift." God bless Mary Jo for her tremendous work done in her 44 years on earth. She does leave behind a legacy to last a lifetime. 

Of the many lung cancer patients I cared for over the years Mary Jo will be the one most remembered. Her life story was truly one of Faith, Relationships and So Many Important Things.

God bless her for living a life not taken for granted. God bless her for living a life where everything mattered. 

I will gladly continue to share her story with others. May God bless her family with good health and great happiness as they move forward into a new chapter of their lives.
