Deborah’s fight for life

So as many of you know over the last few years Deborah has been fighting with Mesothelioma (cancer caused by absestos)
Luckily her form of this disease has been a rare mutation and forms much slower than the usual rate, so removing the Tumours has been possible with multiple surgeries month after month.

However as of October this year, Deborah has developed a Tumour on her spinal cord that cannot be removed, it has compressed her spinal cord meaning she is no longer able to walk or move her legs, so adjusting to life in a wheel chair has been tough.
Being on the spinal cord doctors are unable to remove this Tumour and if left to grow it will be fatal.

General chemotherapy will be too harsh for Deborah to endure so the only option is to run genetic testing to find out what form of chemo/genetic mutation will pin point this specific Tumour meaning the process will not be as taxing and will be successful in removing it,
However the cost of this is over $6000

Having multiple surgeries all year, and living the last 6 months in rehab and hospital facilities, funds have run dry and making up the $6000 is proving difficult.

Deborah is a wonderful woman, caring, trustworthy and a fantastic mother to two girls, 21 and 14. She is needed in her community and would do anything she could to help anyone she knows, she really is a kind hearted person, and life is something she will not give up on!

This may not be the end of the process, but removing this specific Tumour is critical to her survival, she is not done fighting yet and we really do appreciate any donations provided.
