Medical for Anna

This is my daughter, Anna Bernard, who in 2013 found out that she had a non-curing debilitating disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis.  Little did she know it would create SO much unbearable pain along with limiting the time she would be able to spend doing those things she enjoyed and loved so much.  In January of 2017, her specialist told her that there was a "new" drug that was created specifically for her disease.  It would make the pain level to where she enjoys life again, and more importantly, it would slow down the disease process.  In April of 2017, Anna began taking this drug and was pleased to see the results.  The cost was high but we managed.  Now it is a new year and our word from insurance is that she will be paying $3200 for each month in Jan, Feb & Mar, then the remainder of the year will have a small co-pay.  Well we made it through January thanks to some very nice Christmas gifts.  I am lost now and do not have the funds in order for her to receive the injections that she needs for Feb and Mar as I do not have $6400 laying around after trying to pay for Ken's radiation treatments last summer.  If you or someone you know of could help us out in any way with the costs of Anna's medication, it would be wonderful and Anna would appreciate every cent.  She cannot imagine what a month would be like without her medication, and I do not want it to come to that.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read our plea for assistance.

This photo was taken a week ago as she was reading a scripture at Church on Sunday.  She has always been a great person to serve the Lord and knows that He has an answer for her need.
