Congratuations to the Susan Merrill Spirit of Survivorship Award Recipient
Joann took over Project HER leadership in 2006 and directed the program through 2020. Her most important and essential contribution were the following: Joann touched base with every newly diagnosed patient who typically is in desperate need of moral and practical support. She helped and guided them through treatment for as long as they wished assistance in sharing educational materials, resources and access to support groups. Not only is Joann an educator, but she has the experience of being a long term oncology nurse. She not only helps them to thrive, but to survive the cancer experience , by encouraging them beyond active treatment. For this reason and so many others: I am so proud to award this to my friend and colleague
