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.

Any and ALL help no matter how small, will be very much appreciated!

Jane is affectionately known as Aunt Jane by her family, friends and the people who know her.    She prefers to be addressed as “Aunt Jane”.

I have heard it said that the Van Zant family is the royalty of Southern Rock.

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

and since 1987 after the surviving band members re-formed for a reunion tour that is still going,Ronnie Van Zant’s younger brother Johnny has been lead vocalist for the Lynyrd Skynyrd band.

(Brickyard road)   And Donnie  and Johnny form the core of the country  group, The Van Zants, The Van Zants – Country Duo

And then there’s Jane’s brother Jimmie Van Zant!

Then there’s Jane Van Zant ,   the Queen  of Southern Rock.

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 don’t 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).

    I have several pieces of Aunt Jane’s jewelry. I can tell you it holds up very well, I am rough on my stuff! Also, I have had a lot of complements on it. So give her a call and let her hook you up with some hand made FanZant jewelry!!!! Love you to pieces Aunt Jane…. Cat

      Thanks Pete! Aunt Jane has some more left, and at different times she has Picks from different people, you can ask her if you call 904 583 0301. The clear Fanzant® picks are handmade by a fellow who makes them for lots of famous people I think like Van Halen and I forget who all she said, but they are supposed to be really good. I haven’t tried one of those yet. I may get me one of those to see how they sound and play! Jane said the Fanzant® picks (the clear ones) all have a tiny hole at the back pre-punched, (for jewlery) The man who makes them did them that way for her, none of the other picks do though. I may try one of those myself! I was thinking that the little hole might improve the grip.

    Hello…I have been talking with Aunt Jane and wanted to see some of her jewelry. She said it was on this sight. I can’t seem to see it. Can I see pics anywhere else. Would love to order some :)

    God Bless you Aunt Jane:

    When I stumbled upon your website, I started to cry because I have never been this close to something I have loved for so many years. Lynyrd Skynyrd. Knowing that you are an Aunt just ran chills down my spine. You must be so proud of all of them and their band members. I would give anything to meet them. Every time they get close to my home I try to win tickets to meet them back stage. I never win them. And I wish I could afford the ones to buy to get back stage. There is no other band that deserves the recognition, deserves the greatness, deserves the honor, deserves the respect as LS does. There is so much I would love to talk with you about, all the years of loved them and how many times I have seen them. Raising my son to love Southern Rock and started him out at a LS concert when he was 9 and what Johnny said to him when he saw him. How Gary smiled at me, Ricky through my son his pick. How we wrote to Gary when he was so ill with his heart years ago. How I cried so hard when Billy died, the best piano man in my eyes. But I don’t want to keep you too long. I would love to order a bracelet with Freebird on it if they aren’t too much. Please tell LS that Marci in Erie PA has loved them for years and would hope to meet them someday as I have always. God Bless Aunt Jane. Hope to become friends. Thank you. Marci

    Hey Aunt Jane!

    Love your jewerly, and as as Web Developer student & intern, I like your website! I miss talking to you and emailing you!

    I am still pretty busy and haven’t got too many chances to do any geneological research on the Van Zant family tree because I am working two jobs and going to school full-time.

    Love always,
    Sean
