Help Debra Ann fight and beat cancer!

Debra Ann Meinke-Bell is fighting for her life.
A week ago, Debra received the worst possible news – she has stage 4 inflammatory breast cancer that has now moved into her bones. 
She had been visiting countless doctors throughout the spring and summer searching for an answer why she felt so bad and simply could not beat ‘whatever’ it was that was sapping her energy and life.  Debra is a fighter to her core, so month after month, aftervarious tests and diagnoses, she never gave up, but each result proved incorrect and more tests followed.  She asked countless times if it was cancer…… then finally with a new doctor and a new test, a week ago she heard the news that NO ONE ever wants to hear . . . . . . 
stage 4 inflammatory breast cancer.  She is now starting chemo in order to stabilize things to a point to support surgery in the near future.
We are asking you to join directly with Debra in her fight to beat this terrible disease.  She should have started aggressive treatment and Chemo 3-4 months ago and is facing an uphill fight.  Debra is committed to this knock down drag out fight and to do it to win, but she needs our help. 
The medical bills are piling up faster than she can keep track of, and the immediate family impacts are growing and out of her control at this point.
For those who can and want to help in a tangible way in this fight for Debra’s recovery, a donation to help keep her focused on treatment, and then her recovery would be an incredible blessing.  Of all the people we know, Debra is truly one of the most generous, loving and passionate humans we know of and we need to keep this amazing human, mom and grandma around us all as long as we can.
