After announcing her diagnosis on Good Morning America, people all over the country rallied around Joan as she went into Warrior mode.

Following a new clean way of eating, Joan lost thirty pounds, became more aware of the food she was eating, and avoided many of the debilitating side effects of chemotherapy.

Dealing with the cancer also changed her perception of true beauty. Being attractive isn t about the hair on your head it s about the strength and character you bring to everything you do.
