Socialworker Now Needs Help Herself

Our beloved friend and daughter Anna ~ always a compassionate angel on the earth for others ~ is a professional social worker who counsels and cares for those dying in hospice and for their families experiencing the grief of great loss.

In her personal life, Anna is witnessing the tragic decline of her own beloved husband and the loss of his career as he suffers the horrific impacts of early-onset dementia. She also recently experienced the pain and grief of her double mastectomy and debilitating treatment for breast cancer.

And now Anna needs additional medical attention herself, during a time she can’t afford to be away from her ailing husband or her professional work. Her eternal generosity and inner glow of kindness for others never reveals her personal life challenges. Which is why we are asking for help on her behalf.

Thankfully Anna’s medical insurance will cover her critical need for a cancer-related hysterectomy. And her social services agency guarantees her job will be there when she returns, because she is so loved by her colleagues and by those she helps.

But the lost wages incurred during her surgery and weeks of treatment and recovery, the co-pays for the procedure and doctors, and the expenses required for a companion to care for her husband, require us to ask for financial assistance on behalf of this angel on the earth.

Whether you can donate $1 or $10 or $100, your assistance will help return Anna as soon as possible to her beloved calling of helping others in critical need. Thank you so much for your caring donation.

(This beautiful photo of Anna and her husband was taken four years ago on their 25th anniversary, when they renewed their vows to each other. Tragically Anna learned of her breast cancer just days later, and the diagnosis of her husband's early-onset dementia came soon after.)
