Anna, Sutter Health Medical Foundation

by | May 1, 2014 | Award Winners, Success Stories

Anna was addicted to cocaine by age 23. For the next 20 years, Anna lived on the streets — in and out of drug rehab centers, estranged from her family and children and without credible work. It wasn’t the drugs, but an unexpected disease that landed her in a hospital. Suddenly sobered, sick and alone, Anna decided to fight back. Anna’s journey began in 2008 — the worst year possible for finding work. But with the support of her family, a Medical Assisting degree from City College, and unwavering support from JVS, she got a second chance at life. As a full-time Medical Assistant at Sutter Health Medical Foundation, Anna is healing the world every day and is grateful for her roles as mother, grandmother and sister.
