We are sorry to report that Dr. Penner, passed away on January 6th, 2020.
Dr. Penner was dedicated to his patients and derived much satisfaction from helping to heal people. We are sorry he can no longer provide that service, but hope that the information provided on this website can continue to serve the community. The American Dragon website was his passion, and, over the years, has become a great reference for both patients and professionals.
My name is Shoshana – I am Dr. Joel Penner’s daughter and I have received so many messages from those of you who have used and appreciated my father’s website and work. Your caring, heartfelt messages have shown so much about him that I never knew about him before. It is uplifting to know how important his life’s work has been to so many people. I hope to someday respond individually to each message, but until then, I thank you.
My father was happy to provide his work to the community for free, and he defrayed costs through his business. While there is no more income from his business, I still have every hope of keeping this site up and running. Many of you have graciously expressed interest in helping with this. There are definitely costs to hosting this site, so if you are called to do so, we would welcome donations to help with hosting & maintenance expenses.
