A letter from the President:
To Our "Kababayan",
The Philippine Nurses of Greater Kansas City is appealing to the Filipino community to assist Anna Liza
Samilin, a 20 year old Filipino who is an American national from Samoa. She is here in Kansas City as a medical technologist student at CMSU under financial aid. Last October, she was diagnosed with acute leukemia. She was hospitalized for two months and recently finished outpatient chemotheraphy. She is awaiting bone marrow transplant. She and her parents are staying at Lodge, temporary shelter provided by the American Cancer Society.
Anna Liza needs our assistance in any of the following:
Matching bone marrow
Medicaid pay the rest. She has no source of income; her father lost his job while he stayed with her
Financial-her insurance will pay 80% of the medical expenses, her social worker is working on having
during the acute phase of her illness. The family has not recovered from the funeral expenses spent on
Anna Liza's brother who died of drowning a year ago.
Non perishable food, toiletries, laundry products- the shelter provides housing only; the family is
responsible for their daily needs.
Let's find in our hearts the kababayan and humanitarian spirits to assist Anna Liza.
