Fund for Deborah Cotton

$25,651 of $75k goal

Raised by 279 people in 43 months
Let's all show Deb the same love she's shown New Orleans all these years! 

We are all saddened by the shootings at the Mother's Day second line, and it is tragic that Deb was among the victims. A group of Deborah's closest friends has created this fund to help with the enormous expense she will incur from her injuries. 

Please know that 100% of your generous contribution will go to helping Deb.

We can't wait until she's dancing in the streets once again!

As everyone knows, Deb has been released from her long-term care facility and is at home. She still has ongoing medical and living needs, so any continued support is really appreciated. If you want to send a check you can send it to me at 201 St. Charles Ave., 36th Floor, New Orleans, LA 70170 - made payable to Deborah Cotton.

Thanks again.

First, I want to give a BIG "thank you" to everyone who has donated to Deb's fund thus far. We are about a quarter of a way to our goal. Second, while I have heard that there is "a lot of laughter" coming out of the ICU, which is always a good sign, Deb's recovery and rehabilitation will be long. So, please pass along our fund raising site to everyone you know so that Deb can concentrate on getting healthy without having to worry about paying medical/living expenses

Thanks to the generosity of so many of you we have exceeded our initial fundraising goal. Because Deb will be incurring living, medical and rehabilitation expenses for an extended period, we are increasing our goal to $75,000.00. Thank you for your tremendous support!

What an inspiration Deb is to all of us. We need to put all petty things bothering us into perspective when we read about Deb's attitude and strength.
