“Do not give up – hold on.”

Mary Jo is a member of First Methodist Church, and a 70 year member of Eastern Star, having also been a past Worthy Matron.
Described as a real “go-getter”, she still drives and although we won’t divulge her actual age, she continues to care for her 98 year old husband and is going strong! She considers “being able to go on with and enjoy my life” as her greatest accomplishment since her diagnosis.
Her advice to others is to “Hold on – Life gets better!”
