Debbies battle

Okay friends, our sister needs our help!   Debbie was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer three and a half months ago.  Due to there being limited hospitals, doctors, specialist, etc on Maui, there have been huge delays in testing and getting treatment started..  unfortunately,  Debbie has had no treatments thus far because of this.  Debbie has decided to come to  the mainland for treatment at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Her first appointment is Wednesday May 16th.  Thankfully, Cancer Treatment Centers of America is paying to fly both Debbie and Ceto to the mainland for this appointment.  Debbie will have to stay in the area of Cancer Treatment Centers of America for several months while she goes through her therapy. Sadly, Debbie has no long or short term disability benefits through her employer.  She is looking at having  to stay in a motel during her treatments.  Can you imagine how the cost will add up?  Not only for the motel but food ,transportation, co-pays as well as having to still pay her rent and utilities at home . We are estimating the cost to be near $10,000 per month.  As her friends and family, I'm sure you have either been to a party that she has hosted or perhaps been a guest in her home.  I don't have to tell you that she is the "hostess with the most-ess!"   She and Ceto always make everyone feel welcome and at home .    (And you will never be hungry with Ceto around.)  Let's all pitch in and help Debbie while she is busy kicking cancer's butt!    I'm sure the pressure of all of these expenses and no income during this time will only hinder her healing, so let's help!  Even small donations will add up and will certainly decrease their anxiety.    Thank you so much for your contributions and prayers!!!
