Help For Debra Tate

Donation protected
I am writing this on behalf of my dear friend Debra Tate. 
Deb is a fighter and she's been fighting her entire life but now she needs our help.
Deb has just been diagnosed with breast cancer.
Deb lost her entire family in just a few years span.
Her sister Patty died of breast cancer at 42 leaving behind 3 children.
Deb's mom Doris was diagnosed with brain cancer and died 6 months later.
Deb's Dad, a military man, died of congestive heart disease just after Patty died.
Deb's sister Sharon Tate was taken at 26 by the murderous hands of the Manson Family. Deb was just 16 and Patty 11 when Sharon was killed.
Their mother Doris fought tirelessly to keep the murderers who killed her daughter behind bars.
That has been Debs legacy since the death of her entire family. I have watched her fight tirelessly to do so.
Deb hasn't had an easy life by any means. 
She had an animal sanctuary she opened up to at risk youths in hopes of steering them in the right direction. Deb started working for the US Postal Service and it was there, back in 2000, that a bomb exploded in a mailbox she was tending to throwing her into the street and leaving her with an injured back and completely deaf in one ear. She has been on a skeleton disability since then.
I've known Deb for 20 years and she never complains about the cards life has dealt her.
She is an amazing woman. She never asks for help. That's why I have to do this. She needs our help.
She also has a beautiful daughter that she has raised through all of her trying times. We are all trying desperately to rally together to support Deb emotionally and financially because her basic medical coverage isn't enough for the medical costs she is about to face. It's insurmountable and that's why I'm reaching out to you. Because I know she won't. She's a fighter and she has been fighting alone for years. But she can't fight this one without our help.
Our goal is to raise 60 thousand dollars.
Please help us get there.
Thanks for taking the time to read her story. Any little bit helps greatly
