Debra's Medical & Dental Fund

My name is Evelyn Tomblin.  I am 80 years old and live on a small fixed income.  I'm asking for help for my Daughter, Debra Janes who is 56 and is on SS disability.

In January 2012 she broke her hip and after many infections and kidney failure she was able to get a total hip replacement last fall.  I was taking care of both Debra and my son, Tony Tomblin, who had many strokes and had lost a leg due to diabetes and was confined to a wheelchair.   My son Tony died suddenly on June 11, 2014.  One reason why I'm asking for help for Debra is because I failed to ask for help for my son who needed help financially.  I feel in my heart if I had asked for help for Tony he would still be with me.  Debra has brittle bone disease and numerous other medical problems   and was beginning to recover from the hip replacement when she broke her leg in two places.  She is now unable to put any weight on the leg and is required to go to dialysis three times a week and to doctors' visits via ambulance.  Her insurance covers part of the cost but she owes over $2,000.00 to Emergency Medical Services (ambulance) in Roanoke, AL.  Also, she owes the kidney dialysis center over $l,000.00 co-pay.  She hopes to get a kidney replacement when she recovers enough to get on the waiting list.  Debra's immediate concern is the need for dental work which is not paid by her insurance.  Her teeth are breaking off and she has infections causing severe pain.  She needs funds to get all her teeth extracted and dentures amounting to approximately $3,000.00.  If anyone can help my daughter we would be forever grateful.  You can check us out on Facebook to verify this information.  Thank you in advance for your help for Debra.
