The King family has been overwhelmed with love and support from so many since learning of Anna’s diagnosis in April. They asked friends and family to send Anna their love and prayers and all the good vibes they could muster – and boy, have they delivered. Anna and her family believe in the power those things hold in and of themselves – and feel uplifted and encouraged by them daily.
Finances are a concern. The King family had just moved to The Woodlands, TX in the Fall of 2011 to essentially “start over.” Pam had lost her teaching position from budget cuts in education, and Joe was self-employed. They felt it was time for a change, and hoped for a better future for their kids in Texas. Joe took an entry level position at Mattress Firm and Pam planned to find a job in teaching. Now Pam will need to be home and available for Anna’s care and Joe will need to miss time from work. They are fortunate enough to have insurance coverage, but they do have costs out of pocket. The expense of travel, gas, parking, deductibles, medications, loss of hours, and living on one, reduced income will take its toll. The reality is that the Kings will need financial help to pay for these new costs, and to provide Anna with the comfort and care she needs.

One last and important note: If you have not previously considered being an organ donor or giving blood, we would ask you to please consider now. The gift of life is the most amazing of all, and would mean the world to a family just like the Kings. There has been no greater blessing than when someone says they have made the choice to be a donor because of Anna, and there have been many. This journey goes beyond the King family, and Anna wants to do for others the way so many have done for her.
Our sincerest thanks for your support. Please continue to follow and be inspired by Anna’s story and rejoice with the King family in their ultimately happy outcome!
