Subject: RE: Mimi Baez very ill
This is what appears on one of the Joan Baez web pages:
"2001 TOUR DATES
"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.' "
"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
