My dear friends and music lovers!

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.

Musically yours,
Joanne Shenandoah

My dear friends and supporters of my music!


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

Thank you for continuing to follow my journey to healing!!!

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.

Ever Grateful,
Joanne

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...

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

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 ♥

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

I listened to your music decades ago when I was living in Green Bay, WI. I have many, many Wisconsin Oneida friends and I saw you perform with your sister at Indian Summer Fest in Milwaukee, WI. My older sister, Sararesa Begay-Hopkins, introduced me to your music. And at that time (1995 -1997) I was a little aware of the Longhouse. I didn't have the privilege to dance or sing or see it with my own eyes. Anyways, I prayed for you awesome supernatural deliverance healing Heavenly Father God & Jesus Christ prayers that totally worked for me. And I wanted to pray for miracles! AND IT HAPPENED!!!! God & Jesus Christ is good, he is great, he is amazing, he is real & that powerful!
