Joan Martis – One Mile at a Time

Joan Martis moved to Fort Myers Beach for the same reason many do, to escape the cold harsh winters and to enjoy life on an Island. When she bought her home on Indian Bayou Drive just before Hurricane Charley in 2004, she was all set to begin life as an Islander. She never expected that, just a couple of short years into her new life, she would embark on entirely different path – that of a cancer survivor. What this serene and normal looking woman did when faced with a diagnosis that would have brought most people to their knees is both inspiring and uplifting – as well as giving a whole new meaning to the word ‘survivor’.
