One week after finding out that she had stage four lung cancer, the unthinkable happened. A Cheney woman lost everything she owned in a house fire.
“She just needs help and we’d like to see that happen,” says the woman’s friend, Trina Stout.
Stout has known Anita Whitaker for more than 15 years and says she’s like a second mother to her. So when she learned what happened on Tuesday afternoon, she was heartbroken.
The fire broke out around 1:30 Tuesday afternoon, destroying Anita’s home. She was able to make it out safely, but she lost everything in the fire. Friends were busy boarding up the house Tuesday night long after firefighters had left.
