Faces of Sandy: Joan Elder

Cancer surviver Joan Elder, 80, who inherited her 70-year-old home in Babylon nearly 25 years ago, lost almost everything she owned including items passed down to her. Her home now consists of donated items. She says she doesn't have a home anymore, only a house with what she absolutely needs in it. Videojournalist: Brittany Wait (Oct. 16, 2013)
