I loved her more than anything and I can’t imagine life without her.”
Before Andrea Henley’s passing, a GoFundMe Account was created by a family friend to help raise funds for her medical bills and other expenses that had been incurred during the period. “Andrea and her husband Jamie own Giving Tree Theater in Marion, Iowa. It is a small community theater that focuses on telling stories with big hearts. Over the last 4 years, Andrea and Jamie have welcomed in and built a diverse community of people who have become a large family. The Henleys have given the community a place to belong, nurture the arts, and pursue their dreams of being on stage.”
Who Was Andrea Henley?
Andrea Henley has been described y her friends as a woman with a heart of gold. She was the heart and soul of that community, and now her family needs help. Andrea has struggled with several medical issues for many years. In the last 7 months, these issues have grown increasingly serious. She is currently wheelchair-bound and barely has the strength to function. It is vitally important that she is treated at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, but her insurance will not cover any of that cost. They have already spent $5000 just to be seen there, and now she will have an inpatient stay with many tests. Let’s give back to this amazing woman who has given so selflessly to her community.
