Family & friends of Debbie are uniting to raise money for her battle against cancer. TIME is CRUCIAL it's a FIGHT for her LIFE!!!

*NOTE Maryann is listed as the beneficiary because Debbie has made it very clear that she wants her to have power of attorney but all proceeds will go to treatment, medical bills and medications*

This September of 2012 Debbie was diagnosed with stage four metastatic lung cancer. It is progressing very rapidly. It is spreading to other areas of the body. She has innumerable (too many to count) masses in the brain. Doctors stated it is one of the worst cases they have seen in fifteen years. Debbie has no insurance and time is crucial in raising money for her treatment.

This past May Debbie's mother had an open heart surgery called an aortic valve replacement she suffered with complications, the family depleated their funds in travel. Her mother is currently still in the hospital fighting, this has become very difficult with the family having to divide between both members.

The family including Debbie, believes we found a treatment that has a promising success rate this however is costly involving travel. She doesn't like asking for help, seeing her three year old granddaughter hysterical crying saying she don't want grandma to die has helped give her the will and determination to fight the cancer. She is currently holding on but is weakening by the day. Every minute without her medicine and travel is crucial.

Debbie had six children her son vinnie is deceased. Her five survivng children four of which lost their father back 1994 later losing their brother in 2005, they now fear that without treatment they will lose their only survivng parent.

Debbie's family consists of her mother, five siblings, five surving children, her loving partner Egil Kjeka, six grandchildren, neices, & nephews. She has always been a very caring, loving, compasionate person.

This is a race against time to raise money for her treatment. The family can not put into words just how greatful and thankful they are for any help received.
