In 2015, Donna Colton added cancer survivor to her resume. After battling the disease and the insurance companies with Sam by her side and with the help of a GoFundMe account and Donnapalooza, a fundraising concert sparked by friends Joanna Jewett, Julie Briggs and Stacey Waterman, that saw hundreds of local musicians, fans and friends give time and money to support Colton in her time of need; she thought she had it licked.
In 2016, Donna & Sam were invited to be part of the Acoustic Guitar Project of Syracuse curated by Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers. They got the guitar, named Sfumare (to fade, vanish) for one week. Musical healing happened. Donna had written down some lines while going through her cancer treatment. She shared them with Sam and Shattered Stars came to be.

Lyrics

Shattered Stars

(Jesus saves, Jesus spends, He ain't coming back again)

I've got a $2 bill that I keep for luck
At first I was down then I got back up
And they carved out the bad and stitched me up good
I am torn and marred and deeply scarred
But I am made of shattered stars

You're alright now, you're okay
You're alright now, you're okay
You're alright now, you're okay

Well, I'm a little freaked out by what we've gotta pay
to the insurance man with his devil ways
And some parts still hurt but you make it okay
when you kiss my head make it go away
And we are made of shattered stars

You're alright now, you're okay
You're alright now, you're okay
You're alright now, you're okay
I keep telling myself that I gotta stay
Alright now, I'm okay I'm alright now

Get your miracle deliverance!
Said the neon sign
Bring your $2 bills and get in line

You're alright now, you're okay
You're alright now, you're okay
You're alright now, you're okay
I keep telling myself that I gotta stay
Alright now, I'm okay,
I'm alright now
I'm alright, I'm alright, I'm alright
I'm okay, I'm okay
And we are made of shattered stars...


Before you know it all that's here is gone...” - Sam Patterelli
