Joan was widowed at 49 and raised her mentally handicapped son alone.  She has battled liver, gall bladder, and bladder cancer and is presently cancer-free.  Joan has wanted a computer for years but could not afford one.  She felt as if the world was passing her by.

Joan wished for a laptop computer, and her wish was granted by the Long Island, New York Chapter in August 2008.
