Jesse’s Story of the Day

Community gives cancer patient special surprise


She’s raised four daughters, climbed Mount Rainier, and now this grandmother is taking aim at a familiar enemy: cancer.

Meet Jonnie Lane, the 84-year-old who never slows down.

“She’s always been courageous,” said her daughter.  “Doing things people say she can’t do, doing what she wants to do, and finding a way to do it.”

I met Jonnie when she volunteered at Seafair Sunday, the day before starting cancer treatment.  So many viewers were touched by her spirit, and asked how they could help.

So I teamed up with the local non-profit, Valley Girls and Guys, to surprise Jonnie.

See her priceless reaction Friday at 5:30PM.
