    Please Help Us To Save Ana

    I am posting this on behalf of our friend and longtime administrator/moderator, Pete Senarighi (CompguyPete). If you visit webedeveloper.com, or virtualdr.com, you most likely know him.

    In June of 2006 Pete learned that his 11 year old daughter, Andriana (or Ana), has a brain tumor, and that because of its position and intertwining with the brain and brain stem, it is inoperable.

    Therefore, the only treatment option open to them is chemo-therapy. Unfortunately, being self-employed, Pete does not have health insurance, and is currently faced with more than $25,000 in medical bills from the battery of tests performed, which he simply does not have the means to pay.

    Andriana has begun chemo-therapy, and Pete has applied for various types of financial assistance, but these are by no means guaranteed, nor are they timely solutions, so we are asking those who visit our forums if they would like to assist.

    Toward that end we have set up a paypal account and secured a domain name, oneana.com, where visitors can make donations via paypal, and help this family through this very difficult time. No donation is too small!! Every little bit will help. Thank you.

    Sincerely, JPnyc

    Re: Please Help Us To Save Ana

    I'm not in a situation to give any monetary help.
    All I can do is pray for Ana.


    Not all people visits CC. If you make this thread stickey at top of all forums (like "Advertiser" thread), I think that will give it more focus.

    I also request other members to add a link to this thread in their signature. Thanks.
    Please add the following code in your signature:

    Thanks bud, that'll help. If you visit any other non-JM forums, if you'd put it in a sig there, I'd be grateful. I've done that with the few non-JM forums I visit also.

    Re: Please Help Us To Save Ana

    That's horrible. I'm currently trying to help out a girl at my school that was paralyzed in a car accident, so there's not much monetary help I or my parents can give (I do have around $5 left in my paypal if that will help). I will, however, pray for Ana

    Sorry, Note. I either didn't have this job yet or didn't know about it. We've made some progress for Pete and Ana though. I added a visual meter to their site.

    Re: Please Help Us To Save Ana

    I had a dear friend of mine go through chemo-therapy a couple of years ago (which is free in my country as well), unfortunatly she didn't make it. I've donated as much as I could right now but I'm pretty low on funds this month so it's not that very much I'm afraid. I will however also add a link on my website www.sourceedit.com to oneana.com and donate all revenue from my shareware program until the end of this year.

    Well, all income I've had from this particular program has always been used for some form of charity and what cause can be more important than to help a young girl?

    Good man.

    Having some problems with paypal though I can't sign up, just refreshes the page when i turn it form US to UK. Strange. Then of course, doesn't let me continue as it says US once refreshed.
    Plus, is there an age limit for paypal? I'm 17.

    I've added it to the signatures in all the forums i visit. So, that's a little more attention.

    Good luck to her, and good luck to the family with the costs.

    Yea, you have to be 18 to use Paypal. I would gladly donate but for that. So for now all I can offer is my very best wishes for the family.

    @frix199: If you would visit the OneAna.com website, you'll see enough information there for you to easily confirm that this is not a hoax. Hospital names, the name of doctors and so on, all can easily be contacted.

    Re: Please Help Us To Save Ana

    This stickey thread (and many other threads with same subject on other sites) is posted by an Site Admin, who is a direct empoyee of JuperterMedia.

    IMO, that is enough reason to believe it.

    I think, a company as big as JM, who runs some of the major sites on internet, will not cheat its members or will not post a thread like this if they are not sure. Specially when a major portion of the company's earning comes from Ads.

    Re: Please Help Us To Save Ana

    Not been on this site for a bit, so only just got wind of this. Thats truly awful, and as a father of a 3 year old daughter I can't even begin to imagine what you must be going through.
    I will get the banner added to my sig, and will be making a donation via Paypal when I get home this evening.
    For what its worth, I found it very uplifting to read the oneana.com site. It never ceases to amaze me how people can manage to be upbeat in the face of desperation, but good for you for managing it. If theres anything else I can do then please let me know.
    Sincerest regards to you and your family.

    Re: Please Help Us To Save Ana

    I just found this.
    I can't believe it - I am very sorry to hear about this.
    I would love to donate, unfortunately as frustrating as it is to hear, I cannot donate at the moment (just out of uni and loans to payback etc....)
    however whenever I get a chance I will be sure to pay/donate

    I'm sure it has been considered but tried going to the bank for a loan? What about friends/family chipping in? (im sure it has been done)
    What about perhaps putting in sponsers or something? Or even advertising/putting up this on the website?

    MVP 2007-2010 any chance of a regain?
