Thread Name: Mimi Baez very ill
Subject: RE: Mimi Baez very ill
This is what appears on one of the Joan Baez web pages:


"Regretfully, we must announce that Joan's tour has been cancelled. She has decided to put all touring on hold for the time being, and has issued the following statement.

" 'Due to a family health crisis, I am reluctantly forced to cancel all of my touring plans for the immediate future. My sister, Mimi, is in a battle with cancer, and as she continues to fight her illness, I feel an increasing need to be by her side. I will very much miss seeing all of you and look forward to doing so as soon as my situation allows.' "

"Joan Baez

"Thanks to all of you for your understanding, and we hope you will keep Mimi and Joan (and their loved ones) in your thoughts and prayers."

I don't know when this was put on the site, hadn't checked it in awhile. -Giac
