After enduring all of the trials and tribulations previously outlined, Janelle enjoyed something of a respite from the cancer she fought so hard to beat; unfortunately, it looks as though her time is running out.
Her brother, Bennie, explained that the cancer “never really left. She had been doing things to extend her life through surgeries, chemo, radiation. She has decided on hospice because the meso has gotten to her diaphragm and now she can’t do anymore to extend her life. Now she is just wanting her work to live on.”
In honor of Janelle’s bravery in the face of adversity, the Wonder Woman symbol can be found all over Facebook and other social media sites and Janelle’s story has been picked up by television stations out of Indianapolis.
Meanwhile, Wonder Woman’s focus is on raising public awareness and working to ban asbestos in the time she has left.
