Janet was diagnosed with retroperitoneal liposarcoma in 2020. She fought bravely for over two years with radiation therapies, multiple surgeries, and other interventions before passing away peacefully on January 24, 2023. She led an inspiring life as a physician and mother. When she wasn’t in the lab, Janet loved to bake, travel, decorate for Christmas, ride roller coasters, host gatherings, and attend live music concerts. She truly enjoyed adventure and lived a very full life.
Janet was and always will be loved by her three daughters, Lauren, Alyssa, and Erica; and her fiance, Geoff, who want to help contribute to sarcoma research in her memory.
