Local woman seeks community’s help

TIFTON — A local woman is asking for the community’s help.

Patricia Ann Turner, 59, is in desperate need of a double lung transplant.

“The doctors tell me if I don’t have this done, I will not live another year,” she says.

She stated that it’s going to take a lot of money to have the transplant done.

“The doctors told me if I could come up with $5,000, they have a place that will match it (that does not include what it takes before the operation).”

Turner has set up a special account at Ameris Bank.

“I am asking for a love offering,” she said. “Please, help me. Thank you very much and God bless you.”

For more information, call 387-6015.
