Ever On is dedicated to Dan Fogelberg and his artistry in song... ...a place to meet and talk of our love of the music, of the lyrics, of the way his hands seem to effortlessly and delicately become one with the instrument and of his voice... ...that of a herald angel.  Dan Fogelberg creates a sound that takes you to your beginnings and beyond, takes you to a place of timelessness, mystery and wonderment... ...a place where dreams become reality if only for the span of that particular song... ...but... ...those few moments are a gift from beyond our memories... ...and once again we are in the heavens... ...if only for the moment.

No other singer/songwriter in the world
can paint an image in words
as eloquently as Dan Fogelberg.

Ever On was picked for the name after his song by the same name.
It is a travelers prayer.
May you carry it with you as you travel the web.

Dear friends,
Dan left us Sunday, December 16, 2007 at 6:00 a.m. He fought a brave battle with cancer and died peacefully at home in Maine with his wife Jean at his side. His strength, dignity, and grace in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were an inspiration to all who knew him.

From  DanFogelberg.com
 


I'm so grateful to all of you who wrote to Dan through The Living Legacy website with your stories of how his music touched your lives; with your uplifting words of encouragement; with your declarations of admiration and friendship.

Dan was a strong and private man, but even the mountain must tremble, and during the toughest times he gained solace and comfort from reading your letters and learning that his music had been a source of light in your lives. Greatest of all though, was the feeling you gave him that his time here had served a purpose.

I hope you will find some peace in knowing that the joy and comfort you found in his music winged it's way back to him through your words, prayers, and good wishes.
 

Thank you,
Jean Fogelberg

A Valentine Song

    

In February of 2005, Dan went to Colorado for a few weeks to supervise some ranch business and to do some work in the studio. I stayed in Maine to oversee the final construction phase of our Maine house. It was hard for us to be so far apart for so long, especially since we would miss Valentine's Day together.

On the afternoon of the 14th, the florist brought me a dozen long-stemmed red roses; FedEx brought me a CD with a song Dan had written for me just for Valentine's Day. The song is called "Sometimes A Song", and it will be available for digital download at iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and WalMart.com the week of Valentine's Day.

100% of proceeds from all digital sales will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

Thanks for all of your support, encouragement, and condolences.

Happy Valentine's Day,  

Jean


This is one of eleven previously unrecorded songs (nine originals) that will be
released later this year on a CD Dan titled "Love In Time".


Special thanks to Irving Azoff and Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering Studios.

The limited edition Dan Fogelberg "Quest" Lapel Pin

"CONTINUE DAN'S QUEST / BE INFORMED / GET TESTED"

lapel pin

3/4" (same size as a penny) Cloisonne lapel pin with green, red, gray, and white enamel on gold metal. Cost: $10 plus shipping & handling, all proceeds go to the PCF to fund prostate cancer research. This 3/4" size is a limited edition of 5,000.

Designed by Jean Fogelberg exclusively for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.

The symbolism of the design:

~ The Scottish sword - Dan was half Scots-Irish (as many of you know, his mother was born in Scotland); he fought a valiant battle against cancer; and he was my knight in shining armor (and apparently, many of you felt the same way).

~ The Fleur-de-lis (flower of life) was used in Scottish heraldry, and is said to symbolize many things, but among them: purity, light, life, and hope.

~ The guitar is a rendering of one of Dan's favorite Stratocasters, used on stage over many years.

~ Deep forest green and gold were Dan's favorite color combination.

From Jean Fogelberg:

Dan and I battled Advanced Prostate Cancer for three and a half years. Those were difficult days, but during that time we were bolstered by the knowledge that research was being done, and the hope that a cure would be found "any day now". That cure didn't come in time for Dan, but there are thousands of men out there right now hoping and praying a cure will come in time for them.

The Prostate Cancer Foundation funds research at over 150 organizations all over the world. They have funded over 1,400 projects aimed not just at early detection and a cure, but also at finding treatments that will put less stress on a man's body and allow him to live a more active, pain-free life while fighting prostate cancer. Two of the research projects they are funding right now are being conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital, where Dan was treated.

You can help the PCF continue Dan's quest for a cure by making a credit card, PayPal, or check donation. Large or small, every donation is appreciated. Donations in Dan's memory have exceeded $50,300. To date, downloads of "Sometimes A Song" have raised over $7,000 and the "Quest" lapel pin has raised over $16,720.

Thank you in advance for your donation, for paying tribute to Dan, and for helping to further prostate cancer research in his name.

Sincerely,
Jean Fogelberg

"Love In Time" Release Date Set For August 13, 2009



In 2003, while compiling material for a CD of live recordings, Dan came across some rough demos he had recorded earlier in his career. He felt inspired to finish them and worked on the songs until May of 2004 when he was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. We decided we would get treatment in Boston, as we were in the process of building a home in Maine and felt that it would be healthier to be there where Dan could sail and ski, and the new house would be an engrossing, therapeutic project to work on. Dan began receiving the standard course of treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital and we became immersed in all the minute decisions of home building, with trips to Boston every other month for tests and shots.

In January and February of 2005 Dan returned to Colorado to resume working in the studio while I stayed in Maine to oversee the final construction phase. While there he recorded three new songs, one of which was "Sometimes A Song", a valentine for me that would later be released as a download on Valentine's Day 2008 to benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation. In April of 2006 we returned to Colorado together. The ranch was for sale and and we needed to start sorting and organizing things. It was the most beautiful time of the year, warm and lush and everything in bloom. Dan completed, sequenced, and wrote the liner notes for the CD he titled �Love in Time�. He put it in our safe deposit box in Maine and asked me to release it after he was gone.

We never gave up hope that we would somehow beat this disease: we knew every cancer is different and every person is different, but we also knew the odds were against us. Dan was the strongest, bravest person I've ever known and I believed (as did our friends and family) that if anyone would be able to conquer this cancer, it would be him. He fought for every day with incredible determination and grace, and lived every minute to the fullest, sailing right up until two months before he died.

Dan left us on December 16, 2007 but his music continues - a living legacy to one of the most versatile and talented musicians, singers, and songwriters of his generation.

Christmas came early for me as I just finished listening to Dan Fogelberg: A Retrospective Interview! I purchased this cd, not for the music (as I have it all, of course!) but for the rare chance to hear this private man speak about the inspiration and thoughts behind his incredible works. Much to my happiness, the interviewer, Fred Migliore, did an outstanding job of engaging Dan with insightful, well thought out questions. To hear Dan laugh, reminisce and enlighten us with each track was a treat I shall treasure! Cheers to FM Odyssey for making this available for all to hear! - C.H. 



What an exciting finished piece of artwork. Fabulous, warm, heart wrenching, memorable and on and on. Thank you very much for taking the time to pull this project together. - David and Ellyn, TN


I received the cd set and I am telling everyone about it because I am enjoying the interview with Dan Fogelberg and I am truly fascinated with the stories behind the songs. Thank you so much for sending it to me. I am so glad I decided to buy this for myself as a Christmas gift because I will treasure it for the rest of my life. - Michele M.



Just finished listening to my Christmas present - Dan's interview CD with Fred. What an awesome gift to have for years to come. This candid interview revealed answers to questions that had been going around in my head, such as what or whom is the song Tucson, Arizona (Gazette) about. I'll be truthful - I did not want this interview or CD to end, as it felt like Dan was being interviewed today and that we would be hearing from him again in the future. - Aaron B., Montana





That's right... ...for every 2 CD Interview sold a total of $6 will be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation in Dan's name... 
            ...$3 from FMOdyssey.com and $3 from Ever On. 

Go to FMOdyssey.com and click on the BUY NOW button... ...on the 2nd page after clicking that button there will be a drop down menu. Select Ever On from that menu to get $6 dollars donated in Dan's name... ...any other selection only donates $3.

 

Hey my fellow DanFan Brothers... ...have you been tested this year? When Dan passed away I made a resolution to get tested every year and made an appointment with my doc. The DRE (Digital Rectal Exam) is never fun but it only lasts a few seconds. Dr. Poirier said my prostate felt normal. Next I went for lab work - the PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) test. Normal levels are below 4.0 and my level of PSA was 0.4 - Those are the results from 2008.

2009 Good to go. 2010 came and I made my appointment again. The DRE for 2010 - normal. PSA was 0.19

Ladies... ...get your husband, boyfriend, brothers, fathers and any other males you know 40 years old and above to make the appointment and get tested. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I-M-P-O-R-T-A-N-T ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Did you know that men can get prostate cancer passed on to them from their mother as well as from their father? It's true... ...The Prostate Cancer Update - A Publication of the James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions states ""We now know of at least two different methods of transmission of prostate cancer," says Isaacs, "from father to son, and mother to son." 

William Isaacs, Ph.D., has spent much of the last decade testing his self-discipline with the greatest puzzle of all, the human genome. He is searching for the genes involved in hereditary prostate cancer (see "What is HPC?" ); his initial tests took him through the body's 23 pairs of chromosomes at the astonishing rate of about 10 million base pairs (genetic building blocks) at a time, and gleaned a handful of promising sites that deserved further study. 

After those giant strides, however, the next part has had Isaacs creeping at what seems a snail's pace--if his previous tests were the equivalent of flying over an area, now he's conducting a house-to-house search, examining hundreds of genes, one at a time. He is working mostly in the dark: He doesn't know how many genes he's looking for, and -- although he and colleagues have narrowed it down considerably -- he still isn't sure exactly where to find them. Worse, nobody has ever looked at these genes before. So before he can even determine whether or not a gene looks promising, he must first figure out what it is. Think of an explorer sailing in uncharted waters, facing a string of islands, investigating each one and producing a topographical map. "Each one of these genes," he explains, "could be a Ph.D. dissertation in itself, just to identify and characterize the gene, get the structure and sequence it," not to mention comparing all of this new information in the DNA of hundreds of men with HPC and their families. 

And yet, slowly but surely, this hard work is paying off: So far, Isaacs and colleagues at Hopkins and the National Human Genome Research Institute have found good evidence that at least two of these defective genes do indeed exist: One is somewhere on Chromosome 1, and the other, most recently discovered, ties on the X chromosome -- a milestone in cancer research, this is the first time the X chromosome (which sons inherit from their mothers) has been definitively linked to a major cancer. Isaacs would love to start figuring out the role those aberrant genes play in the cascade of events leading to prostate cancer. Instead, he is steeling himself to keep turning over those pieces -- in this case, the pieces are thousands of undiscovered genes--until he can see the puzzle in its entirety. Although they haven't yet pinpointed the faulty genes on either chromosome, Isaacs and colleagues have identified certain characteristics that suggest which mutation a family may have: In families with a mutated HPC1 gene.
