    If you are a collector of things from the Van Zant family, then you might like to have something hand made by Aunt Jane Van Zant.

    Jane Van Zant and her brother Jimmie.

    Please help Jimmie Vanzant and keep him and his wife Zee and the Van Zant family in your prayers.

    Recently Jimmie was diagnosed with liver cancer and his doctors at Vanderbilt Medical Center have told him he will need a life-saving liver transplant very soon. However, transplantation is enormously expensive. According to Transplant Living the total cost of a liver transplant including the pre-transplant expenses, procurement of the organ, hospital admission, doctor’s fees, post-transplant care, and anti-rejection medications for his lifetime is more than $575,000.

    As musicians both Jimmie and Zohra are self-employed. Due to his poor health Jimmie has been forced to stop performing while Zohra has become his full-time caregiver leaving them without an income. Unfortunately, he has no medical insurance and won’t be eligible for the Affordable Care Act until January 1, 2015. However, Jimmie’s doctors have recommended that he begin the evaluation and screening for a possible donor now.

    In order to ease the financial burden, a fundraising campaign in Jimmie’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible, are held by HelpHOPELive in the South-Atlantic Liver Transplant Fund, and are administered by HelpHOPELive for transplant-related expenses only. If you wish to help Jimmie, then please consider making a contribution.

    For credit card contributions, please go to the link below and click the Donate Now button.

    Your support is crucial! Please believe Jimmie when he sings that he does not want to live an unfinished life. Please help Jimmie continue his journey.

    And with Good reason  beginning with Ronnie Van Zant , songwriter, lead vocalist and founder of the Lynyrd Skynyrd band, to his Brothers Johnny and Donnie Van Zant, 38 Special and The Johnny Van Zant Band

    Jane represents the  the Van Zant family and  takes time to interact with the fans.

    Someone has to since most all of the rest of the family are touring , being stars and super  stars they do not have nearly enough time to  interact with their fans as much as they would like. But if you ever chance to meet them you will see that they are just as down to earth  and honest, good people as Jane herself.

    Jane is the nicest and most down to earth person you could ever meet and  I think that there is   anyone   who could  do a better job of representing the Van Zant family, the Royal family of Southern Rock.

    Jane also makes and sells beautiful handcrafted jewelry, and other items such as Van Zant Tee Shirts  (available soon).
