In the 1970's we were all the 'Happiest Girl In The Whole USA'. It didn't matter if you were a woman or a man, boy or girl. When Donna Fargo's smash hit came on the radio you turned it up and at the top of your lungs sung along.

And you couldn't get away from it (and didn't want to!). It was country, it was pop, it was everywhere!

And Donna was no one-hit wonder. With great hits like 'Superman' 'You Can't Be A Beacon (If Your Light Don't Shine)', 'Funny Face' and many more, Donna became an integral part of country music, and music in general.

It was in December 2017 that Donna suffered a stroke.

Now we have an update on Donna's health from her Facebook Page:

Hey everybody. I know you all have been anxious to hear of any health updates about Donna. This is the most recent....

Many of you have been asking for an update on how Donna is doing, so here goes….

Donna has been working diligently on her recovery process with the rehab therapists 3-5 days a week. She is thankfully showing signs of improvement in her walking and speech, although she is not where she wants to be yet. Her handwriting and coordination still have a ways to go, and her level of numbness is a degree to which she’s really having problems adjusting to, but we are praying that these conditions will change for the better, given more therapy and some time.

Unfortunately, she recently took a hard fall, which is adding to her misery. We were back at the emergency room and while the tests showed no bleeding in the brain, and for that we’re very thankful, concussions can cause headaches, which she’s had constantly since the fall, along with blurred vision. On the weekends, it’s basically bed rest because of the fatigue factor. In the meantime, she will continue working with the great therapists for whom we’re so grateful.

Donna is trying to stay encouraged and work as hard as she can, and your notes, cards, and prayers mean a lot to her. She sends her best wishesand hopes you’re all doing well. Thank you again for your kindness. We both sincerely appreciate your concern and thoughtfulness.

All of us send prayers and best wishes for Donna's quick and full recovery!
