The family and friends of Ana Worrell are uniting to raise money to help Ana pay for help with her battle against colon cancer.

Please help assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate her financial burden. Please help Ana fight the fight for her life!  Ana is a 38 year old year old mother of two beautiful children, Daniel 16 and Sabrina 7. At the end of June she was diagnosed with colon cancer.

This difficult journey started the week of June 18, 2012 when she started having severe abdominal pain and bloating, on June 21st she went to her family doctor and got a CT scan done and he found a large tumor in her colon! Everyone, including the doctor was shocked to find out the tumor was malignant.  Ana is only 38 and research shows more than 90% of people diagnosed with the disease are 50 or older and the average age of diagnosis is 64.

Ana has received several diagnoses from oncologists, ranging from a very positive to as little as two years to live.  This, understandably, has been devasating for Ana and her family.  She is a devoted mother and agonizes over the possibility her children might be left without a mother.  

Ana has gone ahead and started chemotherapy.  Her first round was August 1st, and she has been hanging in there like a champ! She is looking into other treatment options from MD Anderson, but for now is undergoing a conventional round of chemotherapy.  While Ana has health insurance to help cover most costs associated with her cancer treatment; there is still a cost-share amount with a yearly out of pocket maximum that she is responsible for meeting. In addition, she now has additional out-of-pocket costs not covered by insurance; including but not limited to alternative treatments, organic foods, supplements, travel expenses, and the out of pocket costs associated with out-of-network providers. Currently she is on short-term disability and is only receiving a percentage of her regular paycheck and that has caused a financial hardship as well. She is hoping to return to work as soon as she is healthy enough.  

This wonderful woman is a fighter and determined to kick cancer's butt. It is my most sincere plea to all of you -please do anything you can do, however small, to help my dear friend.  She is still needed by her family and friends and her time is not over yet. 

If you have any questions, or suggestions, or just need to contact a representative for the family please call Angie Fidler at 480-290-1592 or e-mail at angiefidler@gmail.com.  If you want to send a donation by mail, please send checks to attention: Ana Worrell 110 E Greenway Pkwy Apt 1065, Phoenix, AZ 85022. All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated!! Thank you and God Bless!
