My first thought was how does this represent our Fi… a heart center of rose softness, passionate and delicate… surrounded by bold strength that captivates. The past years you’ve been through so much… but you persevere with passion.

I wish you all the best in your recovery and I know you'll be back with us before you know it!

SECRET GARDEN CANCELS ALL CONCERTS FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR
Unfortunately, life can get in the way of the best-made plans and so, after planning an extensive tour of China this fall as well as planned concerts in Norway, Australia, and Korea to celebrate our latest album “Storyteller", Fionnuala was unfortunately diagnosed with breast cancer.
After two rounds of surgery, she has now started radiation treatment as well as infusion therapy. Her medical team has advised her to concentrate on her health situation, so subsequently, we have decided to postpone all concert plans until Fionnuala’s treatment is over.
We hope to be rescheduling all touring plans in mid-2020. We had been very much looking forward to performing the music from our new album “Storyteller” and it saddens us very much that we have to postpone for the moment.
In Fionnula’s own words: “Even though it’s scary to get such a diagnosis, I am also very grateful that we had recorded and released our new CD. The response so far has been fantastic and I really am very thankful for all the positivity & support we have received”
"This will be a challenging time ahead – but knowing that we will be back performing as soon as possible will give me the drive and support to see the treatment through.”
We want to thank you all for your continued support and meanwhile, hope you enjoy “Storyteller” as our story continues to unfold.
You will overcome dearest Fi, my best friend. Huge congrats on “Storyteller”, it is so very beautiful from all the music to the stunning artwork. Just listening to “Strength” & that’s what you have now, from yourself, others & me. Concentrate on your health. Your music is so healing & now you can heal too. I cant wait to see you very soon. Love you so very much 🎻🎻❤️❤️
Sending prayers your way , this is just another test fionnuala , you WILL beat Cancer's ass, you WILL conquer , thank you for all the beautiful music Secret Garden has put out, it has healed me so many times , God bless you all!
Health and best wishes and hope a very good prognosis and recovery.
🙏🏻❤️❤️❤️ Best wishes to you lovely lady, God bless you!
Fionnula – I am sending you my most powerful heartfelt healing prayers for a complete recovery. I know this will be a difficult chapter for you in your life, but I am confident you will get through this "bump in the road" and emerge stronger than ever. I've been a long time fan of Secret Garden and have all of your CD, DVD's and your new release, which is wonderful. I hope you can visit us sometime in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota in the not too distant future. Warmest wishes and positive vibes are coming your way! 🙂
Mis buenos deseos y oraciones para que sanes pronto querida Fionnuala, paz a sus corazones #SecretGarden… 🇨🇱
Todo mi apoyo y cariño a quién ha puesto la banda sonora a todos mis viajes de Noruega. Mis mejores deseos y mi energía más positiva.
May your very own music be a healing source as it has been for others. I have a friend who is a beautiful singer who had to have throat surgery so I bought her “inside I’m Singing” she said it was got her through a very difficult time of her life.
May God bless you and your doctors and give you a cure! Your music sounds beautifully within so many hearts.
Fionnuala, you are loved so much! I am a 1 year Breast Cancer Survivor! Your music got me through some pretty tough times last year. I will be thinking of you and sending lots of love your way!! You can do this!!!
Sending a truckload of healing love:
My heart goes out to you, Fionnuala, and praying that you’ll have a full recovery. I must say that Storyteller is the best CD that you two have made. It reminds me of watching a movie, with its different moods. I’m grateful that you came out with the CD before your diagnosis. But, your health is the most important thing right now. God has blessed you both, giving us such beautiful music, and I know He’ll give you strength and get you through this. God Bless. Jeff Blew
May God bless you and be with you all through the coming stages dear, and I pray you get well and be fully healed soon dear Fionnuala.. Can’t tell you how much I love your music and have learned a lot from your tender expression in playing… May God bless you and your beloved band 🙏🙏😍😍🌺🌺🌺🌺
