Joanne Mayes Wilson (JoJo), at age 66, passed away peacefully on July 20,2017 at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY. She was born on November 24, 1950 in Akron, Ohio and then was raised in Pottstown, PA where she graduated high school in 1968. Joanne then matriculated to Mount Union College where she majored in music and elementary education and met her future husband and love of her life, David. Immediately upon graduation, they were married in Pottstown, PA on Jun24, 1972.
In 1978, Joanne and Dave moved to Selinsgrove, PA where together they started Dave's orthodontic practice. She then taught preschool at Valley Nursery School before returning to Dave's office as his bookkeeper. All the while she was a doting mother to her two children, Seth and Abbie. Joanne was an avid traveler having voyaged to 5 continents and more than 30 countries. She loved music, literature and was a self-proclaimed "foodie."
Joanne is deeply missed by her family and friends. She had an infectious love of life, a wonderful sense of humor, a magnetic personality, and an everlasting ability to enrich the lives of those fortunate enough to know her.
One of her dying wishes was for her family and friends to continue to fund the uniquely talented physicians and researchers at Memorial Sloan Kettering via Cycle for Survival. We as her team JoJo's Mojo are committed more than ever to finding a cure for liposarcoma and other rare cancers.
Rare cancer research is underfunded, but we can change that. While we can’t all be doctors or researchers, we can raise the money that makes their lifesaving work possible. Cycle for Survival supporters have funded over one hundred clinical trials and studies, leading to new discoveries that are helping patients today.
But there is still more work to be done.
100% of every dollar you give funds pioneering research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events.
About 50% of all people diagnosed with cancer are battling a rare cancer. Too many people are touched by this disease, and yet many with rare cancers don’t have a proven, if any, treatment plan—that’s unacceptable.
