Anita Needs Your Help Now

Anita is my Sister-in-law and I have known her for 37 years... It breaks my heart to have to reach out to everyone because of an illness, but her family really needs our help!! Anita was diagnosed with Breast cancer in February 2014. She had a Mastectomy the following April and with a few more procedures she won that battle! Sadly, the cancer has returned and has spread to several other areas of her body including her brain.   In her brain the tumors (there are several) have changed to what they describe as a frosting that’s attaching to her nerves.  With Dale, her husband and best friend of over 30 years, by her side she is again battling for her life and THEY NEED OUR HELP. Although they had insurance, with multiple trips to the Emergency Room, hospital stays, MRI’S, Cat-scans, 2 Gama knife procedures, multiple medications and now she needs whole brain radiation… It’s overwhelming for them. Now she has reached her insurance maximum payout…. They are looking for other organizations for help, but there are no guarantees and no time to wait…. They have always been kind and supportive to so many of us and are the first to offer a hand when someone needs it… it is our turn to love and support them by donating generously. Every little bit is greatly appreciated! “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” Helen Keller
