Anne and her single Mom, Pat, are struggling to make ends meet as a result of Anne's ongoing, chronic illness.

Anne is a beautiful, bright, kind-hearted 16 year old with a disease called gastroparesis. It is a debilitating illness in which the stomach is unable to digest food. Anne has been hospitalized a dozen times in the last 2 years. She has not been in school on a regular basis in over 2 years. There is no cure, only experimental treatments. Anne has been on feeding tubes and a number of different medicines and procedures. Anne's mom is single and was driving 70 miles each way to her job as a counselor for Marines and their families. She had to take a lot of work off without pay for Anne's medical treatments.  Unfortunately, Mom has been unemployed since November 1.  They have no savings and owe thousands of dollars in medical bills.
