On August 25, 2017 CMA and ACM nominated country artist Anita Cochran was diagnosed with Stage 2, Triple Positive, Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. Anita is known for her many hits including "What If I Said" featuring Steve Wariner. She is a multi award winning artist who took home the "Best Female Guitar Player Award" presented by Gibson. She is also known for having starred in "The Dukes Of Hazzard In Hollywood" movie.
While she was hoping to continue to remain on the road as a performer during her cancer treatment, she immediately learned that would not be possible.
She was told that the prognosis was good but it was going to be a very rough road. Her first chemo treatment, on September 26th, knocked her into the hospital and it was clear that her way of making a living as a musician was going to have to be put on hold. Having undergone aggressive chemotherapy and aggressive surgery, Anita will remain on chemo through October 2018 with more surgery to come.
Aside from a lot of prayers, love and support from her family and friends there is one thing Anita still needs help with and that's the mounting medical bills from her treatments and her daily bills that are piling up with no ability to make an income due to treatment. So while her focus continues on getting healthy, her friend’s focus turns to how we can help her win this war financially.
