Joann and Will first met in high school when Will was a senior and Joann was a junior. Shortly after meeting, the two started dating immediately and became very serious. On Joann’s 18thbirthday, the couple ran off to Lake Tahoe and got married without telling any of their family or friends. That was 40 years ago this past April.
Over the years, Joann has battled a variety of health issues that began when a 2012 colonoscopy revealed a small cancerous tumor. Despite having surgery to remove the tumor, it continued to grow and spread and has now metastasized to JoAnn’s lungs. She is currently undergoing more chemotherapy and is battling a tremendous amount of side effects, pain and fatigue. Wish Upon a Wedding loved meeting this beautiful couple and is honored to grant their wish for a vow renewal.
