The family and friends of Annie Bottorf are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against breast cancer. Please show your support!

We would like to thank: Walter and Carol , Harry Bottorf , Paul and Judith for there generous private donations. They are much appreciate and in total help raised $2,000 to help my mom.

Recently, my mother, Ani, was diagnosed with breast cancer. The signs were there for quite a while: symptoms she hoped would go away on their own. She waited so long to see a doctor that the cancer had already advanced to stage three. Her doctor’s greatest fear was that the cancer had spread throughout her body, because it had gone untreated for so long. It was a great relief to find out that it had not. There are still many other emotions that she goes through: anger at herself for waiting so long; fear of what the future holds; sadness at what she might miss out on, and pain, both emotional and physical.

There are many things important to her that she still wants to do, watch her three grandchildren grow up, go on a cruise, travel the world, and enjoy her hobbies such as baking, sewing and helping others.

Right now, we are at the beginning of her journey to getting better and being healthy. We know it will not be easy, and there is a long road ahead of us, but each day puts us closer to the day my mother can say, “I am a survivor.”

The proceeds from this fundraiser will help my mom with medical expenses, prescription cost and travel expenses that she will have to pay out of pocket. We appreciate every ones prayers and concern. Those prayers, thoughts and kind words are so beneficial to her as she goes through her treatment and test. Your support in so many ways will help save my mothers life. Please also send her a hug with kind words to keep her spirits high.
