Another 911 Professional Needs Assistance

Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 has send Anna a card and a quilt, but if you can help in some small way even if it is just a card, please do so!

 Anna Coffey who was battling bone cancer in her spine.  Miraculously, she recovered and has been in remission for several months.  Out of the blue, her pain returned with a vengeance only to find out that the cancer has returned.  It is intertwined in her spine and the scar tissue from her previous treatments and surgery.  It is in-operable.  She also now has spots on her lungs and liver. 
In the mean time. she is on heavy pain meds and steroids, receiving chemo every three weeks and shots several times a week.  Due to the extensive chemo that she received before, she is almost maxed out on the amount a person can receive in a lifetime.  Her doctor believes she is a good candidate for the cancer center in Texas where there is a doctor who specializes in spinal cancer.  She and her doctor are trying to get the insurance company to cover treatment, but have been unsuccessful so far.  The insurance company has denied the claim so far. 
She is out of work and has been for several weeks having used all her vacation and sick time.  Some time has been donated to her by fellow employees to give her additional sick leave that will carry her for a short time.  However, her family is still struggling financially with all the added co-pays and travel expenses back and forth to doctors, etc..  We are putting together fund raisers to help raise money for the trip to the cancer center as the cost is astronomical.  I would appreciate it if you could post her needs and get the word out to as many people as possible.  Any questions can be directed to me at 239-321-7792 or  Donations can be made to:
