  1. What a great, uplifting, positive story to have come out of such a dark, horrific time for this young girl and her loving family! I actually look forward to hearing more great things from Joelle!!
    Keep fighting the good fight!
    And also, many kudos to the medical team for doing what they do on a daily basis.

  2. This is great news. The look on her beautiful face tells it all. She is a very strong little girl and nothing is going to stop her. She has a lot of support and family and also I am sure a higher power is playing a roll too. God Bless you! And I hope The Augusta Press will continue to update us on her recovery.
