For today: Annie would probably want me to tell you to have some drinkable wine, think of her, and pour one out for your homie.
*this is no longer a request for donations, only an update*
If you have not received an EVITE to Annie's memorial on May 6, please contact me immediately, so I can add you:
gina.privitere "at" gmail . com
It's important that we collect RSVPs - as there will be a doorman, with a guest list at the memorial, and we want to make sure we have an accurate headcount, and that all of annie's friends are on the list. Thank you so much -
We are sad to share the news, that Annie has now transitioned to hospice care at her parent's home. Her nurses are making her as comfortable as possible, but, she is no longer able to receive or respond to communication. Although she can't communicate directly with anyone, please conjure a memory of her in your heart, and send whatever positive energy you can her way, as she transitions from this life.
Annie is surrounded with love and her parents are with her around the clock.They send their deepest appreciation to all, and ask for privacy during this difficult time.
We will provide additional updates as they become available.
I've finally been able to go through the notes and donations here and I'm speechless, flattered and a whole range of emotions teary eyed emotions that I can't put my finger on exactly. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone, this is all extremely hard because I'm usually the person organizing an event around fundsraising. I've seen a glimpse into the depths of my pigheaded independence because realizing then asking for help has been a pretty hard process for me. Coming out of a terrifying darkness around dealing with my diagnosis, a really bad doctor, near phobia to start around hospitals and doctors and extreme anxiety that I've never experienced I'm beyond lucky to have supportive parents and family, friends and a community around the world that is so loving, kind, thoughtful and generous to help me break free. I'm looking forward to getting past all of this and finding some humor in this. I keep trying. Love to you all, I'm floored. Annie
