Joanne Shenandoah Transplant Drive
The email for specific questions can be sent to email@example.com. Kindly be patient as we undertake this most amazing and wonderful task for such a talent!!
With respect and gratitude we appreciate your support and look forward to hearing from you!
It’s been a while since I’ve checked in because the doctors will do a realm of tests this coming month and I’m anxious to see how this will affect my ongoing plans to do more music. My husband Doug hit a deer in Nov 2017 and so I’m still feeling the results of that damage, tearing a meniscus (had surgery in June) in my knee and I also need surgery for my rotator cuff as it is stretched as far as it will go and the doctors say it could snap at any time. Needless to say it is not easy to carry a guitar or my new grandson.
I am honored and grateful to have shared in the birth and care of my new grandbaby while healing. He is an absolute miracle which brings me to tears of joy and gratitude. He is indeed a very bright being who has an old soul.
I had a biopsy last September on my liver which the doctor’s suspected was cancer. A very long needle had to reach in front near my lung and almost to my back on the other side of my body to take the biopsy. I have never actually been nervous before but when they said they could puncture my lung my knees began to shake.
As a rule I am never nervous and so this was a new experience. There was immense pressure during the procedure but alas! Results were grand! No cancer!
Many people suffer from cancer while waiting for a transplant and the system is just difficult to understand.
During this “waiting period,” I continue to meditate and be grateful to continue the blessing of life journey.
I am getting closer to finishing my book “Lifting the Spirit,” which will hopefully help others find a way to heal through difficult times.
I continue to work on inspiring our youth but as you can imagine the funding is minimal. I hope to get another recording composed this coming year and have about 50 songs which are waiting in the wings.
As usual the medical Co-pays and deductibles are high and I ask if there are those who might consider donating, it would be a tax deductible contribution.
I pray our paths will cross again and I want to again thank all of you who have helped by donations to my go fund me account or by writing kind notes and sending gifts to me, which astound me. I am a blessed woman. I appreciate your donations, love, prayers and on-going desire to bring peace to our world.
My life is a miracle. I was pleased to announce that I am in the process of healing. I’m not out of the woods yet, as I have to continue my doctoral regiment, as I’m on two antibiotics for 3 years now...
Although Doctors told me I would not heal without a transplant, I remain positive and full of hope.
I am a new grandmother since September 25th. A beautiful baby boy, Kieran Ryder! It’s a definite transition, but I am so excited to be alive and experience this blessing.
Please know that your contributions have helped so very much and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
We are in the red as far as on-going medical needs, such as deductibles medicines not covered and left over bills from the Mayo Clinic. If you are able to help please know that it would mean the world to me.
I am so very greatful our Creator has given us the gift of life... even though things seem tenuous around the world I believe there are those of us who dream of a time when we can all live in balance and harmony with one another and the natural world.
With genuine love and gratitude for your support.
I have some wonderful news. After all a few months of concern due to a nodule discovered during an MRI... and biopsy for cancer, my doctor called to let me know that my liver is regenerating and that it is a miracle!
Peace through music
Operating around half the energy I normally would (for which I am grateful), I have a renewed sense of hope with my first grandbaby due the end of September. We are very honored to be welcoming a boy! Also, I’ve been performing as I am able.
I’ve continued to be relentless with taking all precautions and following through on many requests from the doctors. I wish I had better news to report, but am asking for your continued prayers and support. After several sonograms and another MRI – I’ve been notified that there is a 12 mm nodule on my liver. Either it will be regenerative, or cancerous, as many patients in my condition are more prone to cancer, diabetes and on-going organ demise. They will do a biopsy in the next few weeks to determine next steps if necessary. On a GOOD note, however, my bloodwork is nearly normal for the first time in 3 years!!
Please know that I am ever grateful for the shares of my story and the help with all expenses related to all the costs associated.
I should have another report very soon.
I am so shocked and deeply saddened to hear about Joanne. I live on a monthly check and can't afford to spend anymore this month, but will try hard to give next month. If we all do our part (whatever we can give) no matter how big or small, we can reach the goal! So, I hope everyone joins me and gives even a little, because in this situation every little bit helps! You are in my prayers Joanne, I have been following your career since you were very young! You have brought me so much joy through your music, that I will give as soon as we get our next check. Peace and love to you! Prayers...
I am happy to hear that spirit, love, support and healthy eating have pulled you through this far and your levels are down and you honored yet another Birth Celebration. Happy Belated Birth Day :*) The song you share and the song within, carries much healing from all over the world. May your spirit remain hopeful and your smile continues. Looking great one day at a time. ♥
Helping and giving is what we do as humans. We have been blessed by his wonderful woman's voice for many years. Now is the time we can give back. We give what we can and put her in our thoughts and prayers. I hear your voice as I write, Joanne
Joanne....I prayed for your eternal Jesus Christ salvation 32 months ago when I donated $10. And early this year I prayed "that Our Heavenly Father God & Our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ totally, entirely and completely take all of that out of you and totally, entirely & completely deliver you of all of that. Then I prayed that God & Jesus Christ fill you full of His Holy Spirit & the baptism of His Holy Spirit. AND I prayed that Our Heavenly Father God do his supernatural will in you and to do it in you/give it in you/put it in you/bless it in you everything that is of God, Jesus Christ & the Holy Spirit. I know these supernatural prayers is what generated your liver to heal & create new healthy liver cells! Our Heavenly Father God & Jesus Christ did it! That's what they do. I, too, am being delivered of extreme depression (and so much more.....) and I was praying for you 32 months ago! I PRAYED FOR YOUR SUPERNATURAL MIRACULOUS healing and am so awesomely shocked & surprised they did that for you. I will be praying supernatural prayers for your finances, more healing & so much more! ♥ A Navajo sister in Page (Lake Powell), ARIZONA
Best wishes Aunty❤
Dear Joanne, I just read your post. Today, within one hour we will have New Moon Ceremony. We will keep you in our prayers! and so I will do every day ! Sending you and Leah all Blessings from the heart! Praying for your soon recovery. Love and Light ... Angelique Boas
This is amazing and wonderful news. May regeneration continue!
i'd love to give a little something, but sadly now i could only use my credit card in euros (i'm french), and i don't know if there's a way to do it when the campaign is in dollars... i still could send thoughts, prayers and love, but i wish i could do more. i discovered joanne 20 years ago, during a stay in new york state. i searched for some good native american music and i falled in love with the "matriarch" cover. i played that cassette until it was worn out, now i have digital albums, and "loving ways" in cd. such a beautiful voice! ♥ the kind of voice who helps me to fight depression, who helps me to stay alive... the least i could do is to share this campaign. thank you from the bottom of my heart, sending hugs & love ♥
Dear Joanne, keep up your meditation and listen to music and nature. You will heal. Remember the song “Hear our prayers?” Olga Valanos
Such terrific news Joanne! Our prayers are being answered. May God fully restore your liver function and continue to baffle the experts! Much love and blessing always.
Dear Vicky: (for for my sister Joanne Shenandoah!) I first heard about your sister's recordings when I was in my 30s. I also became aware of Daganiwa and Haitawa'' journey. Your sister sang the whole history of their journey together. How to establish that Law of Peace, The Law of the One Infinite Creator. Tell Joanne I bought her CD via Amazon recently and I will be sharing this with others! - With un-condiontianal Love to you and your family , friends and the circle of love.
I have been listening to your music for a long time now and have been sharing your music with those that I know would appreciate what you have done with the music as well as tell stories with your music. So I am glad that you are still trying to write and sing and make more but you also need to spend the time with your family and your friends as well. I will always listen to your music healing love and light being sent to you still
I may not be able to send money to you at this time but I can send healing love and light. Your music touches my soul. It makes me feel like I am coming home after a long trip. It soothes me during the hard times. I have not been able to listen for a long time and just now was able to pull it up on Youtube. I am sorry that you have not been doing well over the last few years. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers from this point forward. You have taught me so much through your music
Joanne, you are a wonderful lady and I pray that Great Spirit will have you healed and with us longer. Thanks for sharing your music with the documentary Generation Red Nation. Lots of Indian followers. If I made money, I would have sent more. You are a human treasure.
I am sadden to hear this. I will burn sage and pray for her.
