Folks,
Some of you may be aware that our dear friend Andie Kay Joyner has been battling some very serious health issues.  We are not sure how much people know, and since so many of our friends have been asking, we are hoping to give some answers to some of your questions.

Andie Kay has a genetic blood disorder called Hemochromatosis. (http://www.hemochromatosis.org/#overview)
Hemochromatosis is a condition that causes the body to absorb too much iron. Over time the iron builds up in major organs and can cause severe damage. In Andie Kay's case, her heart and liver were damaged to the point that she required a double transplant.

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 second fundraising musical event will be held Sunday, November 6  in downtown Ben Wheeler, TX to help raise funds to assist with some of her financial and needs. We are calling the event “Make Andie Kay OK - Ben Wheeler". There will be more details to come, but rest assured that as loved as she is, the musical line-up will be strong! There will be raffle items as well as live and silent auction items to bid on.  

For folks who can’t attend the event on November 6 you can donate online to her GoFundMe campaign. (link above)  If you are a business or an individual who would like to donate an item for the silent or live auction or the raffle (God Bless you) please send a message to our event page. Also, please LIKE and SHARE this page to help spread the word about what we are doing. 

We will be posting updates regularly to her GoFundMe page to let everyone know how Andie Kay is getting along. Right now she is keeping her spirits up despite the difficulties she faces and the discomfort of being in the hospital for so long.  She would like  to say thank you so much for your love, messages and prayers. She has been deeply touched by all of it.

With love and support we can get her through this. Thank you so much everyone.
