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

To my dear supporters of music and health!

My spirit is strong today as I am soooo very blessed to say that Creator kept me here to be a grandma! We will be expecting a baby boy in September and we are so very excited!!!!!!

So, now that I am off the transplant list – and we don’t know for how long – but still checking levels, sonograms and MRI’s here in CNY with on-going procedures. I recently found out that an ulcer had healed (and I am very surprised that I had one).

As per usual, there are many on-going appointments with co-pays and additional medications. I have so much to be grateful for as Doug and I are getting our medical needs under control. They say some folks wait for up to 7 years to have a transplant. I’m not cleared completely, but slowly my meld score continues to go down. I have a whole new plethora of testing coming up again soon. Health care remains tenuous and I realize I am not alone.

I hope to have a book written about my healing journey by the end of fall. My wish is to inspire others with alternative options for healing, including the vibrations of music, prayer and meditation.

More news soon!

Keeping the faith!

It is now spring in Central New York and I have been able to perform a few benefit concerts to help with associated medical costs, the bills keep streaming in. I know the Creator continues to bless me through prayers, love and support.

Good news abounds while I am still going through testing. My inside -upper endoscopy today showed healing! My doctor was very pleased about this and is taking every precaution to make sure that I have no additional complications.

I am still meditating and realizing more than ever the huge impact music makes on the lives of people everywhere around the world.

I’ve been listening to some of my past recordings, such as Skywoman which was co-written with dear friend Gerhard Rebmann. This music is still relevant, majestic and powerful! I am sad, however, to report that Gerhard’s health is failing, and could use your prayers.

It is extremely rare for someone to heal from cryptogenic liver disease without a transplant. The Creator has additional plans for me as my body undertakes this transformation.

My husband hit a ten point buck this past fall. This resulted in a torn meniscus and possible rotator cuff issue, through the pain I’m remaining thankful and hopeful to be able to continue in this miracle called life.

Thank you so very much for your continued support.

Blessings - musically yours,
Joanne Shenandoah

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'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 ♥

If you are on a "list", does that mean you're waiting for a donor liver? Can you use a "living donor"? I'm sure that I and many others would be honored to donate, if we are a match. Can you post here about whether that is an option? http://www.americantransplantfoundation.org/about-transplant/living-donation/about-living-donation/living-liver-donation

Aloha Joanne. I am praying for you to get the transplant you need and wish I could help. Please research the supplement MSM. It does wonders for scar tissue and general congestive disorders that impede cell function. It is completely non toxic, derived from evergreens. Best wishes!
