The family and friends of Deirdre Rivette are helping to raise money for the Fight for Dee against breast and liver cancer. Please help!!!

My sister and friend Deirdre Rivette took ill in March 2012. While driving herself to the emergency room for what she thought would be serious but enough to cure she was faced with the unforgettable.
She told the doctors what happen to make her come in that day and they took a few tests. After a couple of hours they admitted her to the hospital where they ran more test. To her surprise they came back and diagnosed her with Stage four breast and liver cancer.
Knowing the cancer runs in the family it was very upsetting to her, Not only has she had to live with losing her own mother at an early age of 13 she now was faced to tell her own five children the same was going on with her.
But through all this she has another problem. While her stay in the hospital she was given notice that she had 24 hours to move out of a house she had been renting for seven years due to forclosure. It wasn't because she wasn't making payments on the house; it was because the owner of the house was not paying the mortgage once Section 8 sent her the money. So once the owner lost the house Section 8 starting paying the bank. But the bank turn around and said they wanted the house back leaving her and her five kids homeless.
Now she is fighting the Section 8 Housing Authority to keep her housing after bring numerous documents telling them that she need a move packet so she can get a place to stay for her and her children. But after learning they had been still paying on the house she no longer resided in they tell her that she has been terminated because she didn't ask for appeal on her housing after she had been doing everything possible they told her to do. So she is living from place to place.
Deirdre is just 42 years of age is five kids (Markayla 18, DeAndrea 16 whom suffers from autism, Antonio 14,
Anna 12, and Aniayh 7.
I am asking out of the kindness of your hearts to please help me by donating a minimum of five dollars representing her five kids that she has to try to raise and fight off the disease. I know if enough of us donate five dollars it will quickly raise the amount she needs to be able to help her out in her time of need.
