Dennis and Teresa Tate

Dennis and Teresa Tate have been going through a very difficult time and are in need of assistance. In December 2018, Teresa was diagnosed with brain cancer involving multiple tumors. Since that time Teresa has been unable to work. She has received extensive medical treatment, including having a shunt placed in her brain to release pressure and drain fluid.  She has had six weeks of radiation prior to doctors finding that the cancer was in her spine, requiring more radiation. Eventually, Teresa was sent home and told she has weeks to a few months to live. Dennis, who calls her his better half, and various family, volunteers and paid help are providing her around the clock care.  Dennis has said that someone has to stay with her 24/7.  Since Teresa is bed ridden, requiring assistance with all basic functions, the amount of care needed is quite intensive.  Medical bills, supplies, the cost of care and the lost income their family has experienced since the diagnosis have been significant.  Lets help them to alleviate some of this financial burden while we all continue to support them in other ways as well.
