Anne is a pediatrician who lost her only child in the initial attack, a tragedy she has yet to face fully. She pours herself into her work as a doctor for the 2nd Mass, doing what she can to help the survivors cope both physically and emotionally with their situation. Anne's only remaining family members are her aunt and uncle, who have also found refuge with the 2nd Mass. Anne develops a close friendship with Tom as a result of their shared tragedy. She also takes Lourdes, a young first-year med student, under her wing to help out in the makeshift clinic. But beneath her sturdy exterior, Anne continues to be haunted by the death of her son in ways few can understand.
