Support the Art(ist)! The funds raised will be used for Jo Ann's recovery and out of pocket medical expenses.

Jo Ann was diagnosed with a vascular malformation (tumor) in her spinal cord in 1987. The surgery performed to remove the tumor also removed a portion of her spinal cord and left her with right side weakness and paralysis. Now there is a cyst that has formed in the void left by the tumor and Jo Ann is scheduled for another spinal cord surgery in October. For the last three years Jo Ann has seen many doctors and has had countless tests ranging from simple blood work to tests that required an overnight stay in the hospital. Jo Ann's recovery will take approximately four months during which time she will not have income. We are raising money for her recovery and out of pocket medical expenses.

Another way to support Jo Ann is to purchase her artwork. You can view her artwork at and contact her at for more info.
