Annijamila is a mother, a wife, and a fighter.
Now Anni has aggressive stage 4 lung cancer.
She was was diagnosed in December 2019. It was sudden and unexpected - Anni has nurtured a healthy, non-smoking lifestyle for herself and her family.
Now we all become fighters. We are fighters for Anni, for her 4-year old daughter Ava, and her husband Alberto.
Anni and her family are up against daunting financial odds. The battle will require treatment, travel and connections. Her recommended treatment is still being determined, but because of the advanced nature of her condition, it will most certainly involve radiation and long periods of hospitalization. The family's insurance cover in the United States is limited. Medical bills are already coming in. Alberto will be looking after Ava, limiting his ability to produce income.
We now ask that you take action with us to give Anni, Ava and Alberto a chance. Let's call in favors, twist arms, appeal to reason, use seduction, whatever you shine at.
But let's all start by giving the smallest of tokens: our financial support. This, we can all do.
It's simple, necessary, and effective.
Now we fight.
