Make Andie Kay OK

Donation protected
Our dear friend, Andie Kay Joyner has a very serious blood disorder known as Hemochromatosis that has affected her vital organs. (Hemochromatosis Overview)

Hemochromatosis is a genetic iron overload disease that causes  the body to store too much iron.  Over time, this excess iron can ultimately damage vital organs. In Andie Kay's case, her heart and liver were damaged to the point that she required a double transplant.

Andie Kay was in and out of Parkland Hospital in Dallas starting March 2016. She was admitted to UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas in early August for treatment and to investigate heart transplant opportunities.   She has been in the hands of some of the leading cardiologists in the world.

On September 6th  Andie Kay underwent an 18 hour surgery to replace her damaged heart and liver.  As of this writing, her body seems to be accepting her new organs and they seem to be functioning quite well. While she is on the path to recovery, her condition still remains very serious and she needs our continued love and support.

A little background on Andie Kay:

Andie Kay started her singing career as a very young child, performing at opry's and blue grass festivals across North East Texas. Over the years, she's worked as a backup singer for a "who's who" list of performers...Rusty Weir, Jim Lauderdale, Tommy Alverson, Eleven Hundred Springs, Mark David Manders and Max Stalling to name a few. She has harmony singing credits on hundreds of recording sessions across Texas. She has been the lead singer and co-songwriter for the band blacktopGYPSY for many years. She has entertained and wowed listeners her whole life with her sultry and powerful voice.

Needless to say, the health complications she is suffering through now have completely prevented her from being able to sing and earn money.  She is facing a very long road and needs our help.

Funds raised here will be used to help Andie Kay with her mounting medical costs for treatment and heart and liver transplant as well as some day-to-day living expenses.

Andie Kay's case is uncommon and unique...much like Andie Kay herself.  She is a rare and special person and she needs our help.  We want to keep her amazing voice and spirit around for a long time. Please consider donating to this campaign and telling others about Andie Kay and hemochromatosis.

NOTE: Glenda Miller, (Andie Kay' mother ) will be handling the funds on her behalf.
