Ana Posada became an American citizen over a year ago. She was proud to be at a point in her life where she could build a better life for herself and her family. That was until one day when she felt extreme pain in her abdomen and chest. Thinking that it was nothing serious, Ana didn’t go to the doctor. But, after a few days the pain became so unbearable that she could barely move. Finally, Ana’s daughter insisted she go to the hospital.

Within a matter of weeks, Ana was able to get the surgery she needed and, once home, she began receiving meals from Food & Friends. “It made me so happy. I was not alone,” says Ana. “Love is all around, because there were so many people helping me.”
While going through chemotherapy treatments, Ana stays with her daughter and grandchildren. Not being able to work, Ana spends her day taking care of her grandchildren. The meals Ana receives are not only providing much-needed nutrition, but they ease the burden on her family.
“I am in too much pain to work. Food & Friends meals make it easier on me and my family – without it, I would have to depend on them a lot more.”
