First: Get a box of tissues ready.

Second: Watch this episode, where Joanna reflects on the six months since her diagnosis - and her changed perspective on life - and finds out whether or not the rigorous chemotherapy regimen has worked.

Third: Go hug your babies, partners, parents, siblings, friends, coworkers, anyone - and just reflect for a moment on how precious life is (cliche but true).


Has following Joanna's story changed your own outlook at all?

I instantly got cold chills and cried when it said no new cancer was found. How amazing!! 

Hoping for the best for Joanna.

I get so stressed with life and work... Watching Joanna's story has given me a reality check of a 'bad day'.  It is a good reminder that we shouldn't have to go through a life and death scare to appreciate life and the smallest of indulgences.... time with our family, healthy food, unwavering support. 

I am glad she is in remission and pray she stays there.

 Its good to see positivity during this ugliness. Im glad cancer wasnt found and she can move forward and upward.

As the wife of someone with terminal cancer these stories get to me and I have very mixed feelings about chemo and drs. Im glad it works for some, just wish we'd have seen it in our lives.

I've been following her videos this whole time. I was fine watching this one until the end where no new cancer found. I'm totally crying now. SO happy about this news!!! She is such a strong person and a great example to us all.
