TEAM DEB


My mom, Debrah Burnett was diagnosed with Small Cell Lung Cancer. She is 58 years old with no health insurance. It’s to my surprise and sadness that if she had insurance she probably could have gotten treatment the day she was diagnosed. The world is upside down in health care matters, but the matter at hand is my mother and what can I do (and we) to help.

Right now, we're unsure if my mom will return to her contract work (with no insurance). So, our first fund raising effort will be through my friend Nicole and her Mary Kay business. All sales she receives on her web site she'll donate 25% to my mom. I realize you may not use Mary Kay products, but I do believe most people use eye make-up remover, lip gloss, sun screen, or moisturizer. There are also great gift ideas! ($2 shipping any where in the U.S. any weight.)

Several fund raising efforts and ideas are in the works. This is our first to launch. My goal is to raise $1000 through this effort. I won't ask you to email blast your entire friends list, but I would ask that you forward this to whomever you think might like to help. Any one can contact me with questions or concerns, etc.

I will be praying for your Mom. I know what it is like to have a family member with cancer. My grandfather had lung & throat cancer. It isn't easy, and I hope that God grants you the strength to make it through this tough time.
I will share your story on my blog today.
Lots of love to you & Marshall. xoxo
