Marjean DeCesare

First post: Sep 19, 2017 Latest post: Nov 11, 2017
In August 2017, our beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend Marjean McShane DeCesare was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer of the lung and bone. As we navigate our shock, heartache, and desire to help Marjean and her family, we've created this site to keep her wide network of loved ones updated on Marjean's health, needs, and progress. 

As of September 17, Marjean is recuperating from her various tests and surgeries at home. Because her rest is essential to her continued progress, we ask anyone who wishes to contact her to do so via email ( or to leave a note on this page.  Texts are 
welcome yet expect responses to be inconsistent. As of now, we hope to reduce the phone calls, as they can disturb her sleep. Those who wish to visit, please contact Marjean's sisters Cate Coghlan (320-444-6276) or Mary Irestone (651-260-3070) before dropping by, and be advised that visits are most appreciated after 2pm. Her family thanks you in advance for understanding if we can't get back to you right away. 

We encourage you to check this page regularly for the most detailed updates we can provide. Most updates are written by Marjean's son Dr. Brian DeCesare or her sister-in-law Carol Goode.
