Absolutely beautiful... (This is Jeanne's message)
Download this recording of "Hallelujah" at http://www.jeannejolly.com and make a donation. All of the proceeds will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (http://www.ocrf.org). In 2008 my sweet mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer and lost her battle 4 months later. My family and I felt so helpless watching this happen. Although we know she is healed now, we miss her terribly. She came to every performance of mine and always encouraged me to keep sharing my musical gift.
Every time I perform this song live, I feel a deep connection to her so I decided to record it and release it this way...as a tribute to my precious mom, Jeanne Stott Jolly and to all of those who are affected by this disease. Each year, more than 20, 000 women in the US are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer and nearly 75 percent of them are diagnosed at an advanced stage. It is often referred to as "the disease that whispers".
Your support is greatly appreciated in helping me raise money for this cause. Download and donate at http://www.jeannejolly.com.
