Help for Debbie Donohue

Debbie Donohue is a close friend of mine.  All of Debbie's life has been a struggle, but she NEVER gives up.   One would never know she goes without the things in life that one needs to survive. Debbie has hundreds of friends from her working at various restaurants.  Everyone going to these restaurants also asks for Debbie because of her friendliness and smile.  She knows all her customers and their children  by their names.  Even though Debbie does not have much, she would give you the shirt off her back so you would not feel the pain she has felt all of her life.  Her true friends are her kittens.  They bring joy and love to her life.  Even though Debbie now is very ill, she went to work and at times she walked to work dragging her oxygen  tank behind her for several miles even during the harsh Buffalo winters.  When Debbie says she will be there, she is there.

Now Debbie need the help of all her friends to defray the cost of hospital bills, utilities and rent.  Debbie asks for nothing from anyone and  because she NEVER asked this caused all of her utilities to be terminated , her kitties unfed and her rent unpaid. 

Debbie is now in critical condition at St. Joseph's hospital, Cheektowaga, NY in the ICU unit.  She has no hospital insurance because Social Services revoked her insurance because she was working part-time at a Subway shop. She cannot speak for herself as she has tubes in her entire body.  Her vitals are not good and she is heavily sedated.

Please Help Debbie regain the dignity she once had and ease the burden of having to scrape by every month just to survive!  Her friends miss seeing her and she needs help badly!
