Welcome to Joan’s New Life Tour; Launch: Spring 2017, one year post transplant and days after selling almost all of my possessions!

Come along for the ride as I attempt to visit every U.S. National Park, engage with & learn from people on the road, and promote organ-donor registration.

Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it.  Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path.  Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look.  Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching.  March to the beat of your own drummer.  And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
