Welcome to Joan Marie's Caring Bridge website. Joan Marie has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, which is cancer of the lymph nodes. Please take a moment to read the latest journal entry for updates. Mom has gained strength and welcomes visitors, but before coming to visit, please call ahead as she may be out! She is no longer in Bend, but has returned to her home in Coquille. Please mail all future cards to PO Box 607 Coquille, OR 97423. Joan Marie is making all of her own decisions supported by her family, who are fiercely protective of her right to do so. She is managing her pain well. We know that her friends and family care deeply and are using Caring Bridge to keep them updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
