JOAN LOBIS BROWN : Women of an UNcertain Age | Women's History Month

I have figured out that the way to conquer fear is with forgiveness. Forgiveness is everything. I forgive everybody. I forgive the God that gave me this breast cancer. The secret is to have a loving spirit, to be grateful, and to have faith that everyone has infinite possibilities. It’s all a gift, every challenge, everything that is given you. Everyone is part of something bigger. That belief is what keeps me going. Photograph © Joan Lobis Brown

I color my skin and not my hair. I’m an Ivy-League educated woman who teaches deaf and hard of hearing children. I am an author, having written a book for children. I am also a collector of tattoos. Photograph © Joan Lobis Brown
