Crestview teenager's medical fund reaches half-goal

Published: Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at 01:47 AM.

Dr. Jennifer Wayer and Crestview Family Dentistry staffers organized a dental exam fundraiser last December. In October, family members set up a photo booth during the Fall Festival in downtown Crestview. In addition, Crestview, Fort Walton Beach and Niceville high schools have organized fundraisers, and several collection containers are in Crestview area businesses, Patricia said.

Most of those benefits, which raised $31,825.24 for the Crestview teenager, would have been impossible without the community's involvement, public relations coordinator Jessica Nance said.

The efforts will continue with an April 28 to May 3 Chill Yogurt fundraiser, in which a portion of the proceeds will benefit Anna's treatment fund.

The money's one thing, but finding a suitable donor is another, her mother said.

"She is on the (transplant) list and they are waiting for the perfect donor," Patricia said. "We are really grateful for everything the community has done."
