Deb's Fight to Win continues!!

I am doing this for my best friend.  She has been battling lung cancer for the last five years and is continuing to fight with all she's got.  She is now just 50 years old.    In the past ten years, Deb has fought and beaten Stage 4 Melanoma and also has painstakingly grieved the loss of her twin girls at six months old in utero.    She is the strongest woman I have ever known and a SURVIVOR in every sense of the word.    Unbeknowst to me and all who love and support her, she now has in excess of $300,000 in medical bills outstanding and climbing! The cost of survival for her is outrageous!  Shocking!!  
Her biggest fear is how long before they no longer treat her due to her inability to pay so much??   I'm doing this for her because I know her so well, and if she knows she's got some help with her financial stresses, it will make a huge difference in her mental attitude, and she needs all the positiveness she can possibly get right now.    She's going through a very depressing time with chemo, feeling sick, and the winter blues all at once :-(  She is undergoing chemo monthly, but scans, blood work/blood transfusions, and medications all add up to so much more than she can handle.     It's neverending for her, and I feel with all my heart the least I can do is share her story and hope for some support so that she may be able to keep fighting the fight and living each day to the fullest and enabling her to continue her treatments at Dana Farber in Boston.  Every little bit counts...  Thank you everyone who pray for Deb and continue to send her positive messages and a show of love to her on Facebook constantly.  You have no idea how much you brighten a lot of her darkest days!  We pray to God they will find a cure for her kind of cancer before it's too late.  Right now it's more about her being able to continue her maintenance chemo...ONE DAY AT A TIME!  #debsfighttowin #cancersucks #loveudeb!   THANK YOU for all of your support <3
