Wireless connection for fax machine?

My boss at work wants to have her own fax machine in her office.  The closest analog phone jack is about five offices away from hers, so running a cable is not an option.  What would people recommend?  Is there some way to connect the fax wirelessly?

(We also have a VOIP phone system [made by Allworx], but the vendor doesn't recommend interfacing it to a fax machine.)

Distybox adapters can be used to connect analogue to DECT wirelessly. You will also need a DECT wireless base station connected to an analogue line.

Wyliecoyoteuk -- isn't DECT only in Europe?  I'm in the US.

No, DECT was approved in the US in 2006, so there should be a range of equipment available.
DECT is just a digital wireless telephony standard (Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) , but the base stations connect to an analogue port.

After looking, there are plenty of DECT phone setups, but no port extender in the US, so looks like DavisMcCarn's suggestion is your best bet.
