  2. Dear Jeanna,
    I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. You seem like a kind soul. I wish you the best. You didn’t deserve your incredible loss. Please hang in there.
    God Bless
    Sincerely, Carrie Nolan

  3. Poor woman. Here’s a girl who got dealt a very poor hand by having neglectful and unfit parents. Yet, she protects her siblings to shield them from the abuse. Although she made mistakes, she chose a clean path after she had her child but had the misfortune of choosing the wrong husband.

    I sincerely hope the best for her because she did a lot better than most people in similar situation.

    She truly deserves the world.

  4. Jeanna, I hope you are still well. Your story was the most tragic and emotionally heart wrenching I have watched. You are a wonderful person & I hope you are now truly content. All the best to you and your family.

  7. I’m watching Jeanna’s episode right now, which led me to Google looking for an update. It looks like little sister Mika, mom Shannon and grandma Leslie are doing well: http://www.uniondemocrat.com/newsroomstafflist/5359656-151/woman-granddaughter-graduate-together

  8. I found Mika on FB, it doesn’t look like she has a relationship with her sister – that or they are just really not close at all. She has had another baby, and I didn’t see Jeanna anywhere.

  9. Her current Facebook is “Jean Tyke Matson”. You can’t tell much from her fb though.
