Debbie Echevarria Emergency Fund

Debbie Echevarria has helped all of us, now its time to help her!
As many of you may know- Debbie Echevarria has been diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and has been fighting this disease with everything she's got! Currently she is down to taking 17 pills and 3 shots a week just to function on a daily basis. She has hidden this from most of us- we were not aware of the daily struggles she has been working to overcome. Recently she has fallen on VERY hard times! Not only is she fighting this horrible disease, but she was abandoned by her husband of 27 years and is living in an upstairs apartment (Which she can not do stairs with her disease) but he left her financially and emotionally drained. The rent has not been paid (as she just found out) and in 10 days will be homeless! Debbie has been there for all of us in the Ventura community for years and now its time to reach out and help her. Please donate to the Debbie Echevarria fund so she can move to a one story home and get back on her feet and focus on her health. She has been brave and NEVER asks for help- but she needs it now. If you have an affordable rental in Ventura- please also let us know. The funds raised will help provide resources for a mover, deposit and rent on a new place. Remember, Debbie's son is also a veteran and her daughter has been tirelessly helping with the daily care. Please help- even if its only a little bit- anything you can do would be greatly appreciated. Stress and MS don't go well together and all of this stress is only making the MS progress harder and faster. Let's help get Debbie back on her feet!!
