Joanna was diagnosed at age 36 with ovarian cancer shortly after the birth of her child in 2009. She was overwhelmed, scared and shocked at what should have been the happiest time in her life. Joanna and her husband Jose needed to continue working throughout Joanna's treatment so they could keep their healthcare insurance, so Joanna's sister came from Europe to take care of the new baby. Joanna immediately embraced the Woman to Woman program and relied on her volunteer partner for support and advice. Two years after completing treatment, Joanna and Jose remain connected to Woman to Woman and credit the program with helping them both through the emotional roller coaster of Joanna's ovarian cancer diagnosis.
