“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. 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” her most significant accomplishment since her diagnosis.

She advises others to “Hold on – Life gets better!”
