A Gofundme Page has been set up for a woman friends refer to as an all around amazing lady.

Anna Fiorentini, beloved wife, mother, Bibi (grandmother), step-mom, sister, friend, co-worker was diagnosed with a stage 3 eye tumor that has metastasized to her salivary and lymphatic systems.

Friends say she has already undergone surgery to remove her entire right eye.  Another major surgery will soon follow. She is, no doubt, in for the fight of her life.

Anna will soon begin aggressive radiation & chemotherapy treatments.  She will also require reconstructive surgeries.  Her cancer is so rare that her case has gone to the Tumor Board at both Cleveland Clinic and Roswell Park.

Friends and family are raising money to help her stay focused on her well being and not worry about financial issues right now.  Medical expenses will be very costly and she will be out of work for an undetermined and extensive amount of time.  She is and will be enduring a long, arduous battle.

Her situation is urgent!

If you have any other questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact:

Christina Henderson (716-628-8032)
Erin Andrejcak (716-696-2387)
Zach Andrejcak (716-550-9465)

If you would like to support Anna and her family, here is a link to the GoFundMe.
