A Mother of Seven Needs Your Help to Cover Cost of Heart Surgery

Deborah Frazer

Thirty-nine year old Deborah Frazer is also asking for assistance. In April of this year, the mother of seven children was diagnosed with a heart condition and is in need of urgent corrective surgery. With the assistance of a team of doctors including Doctor Adrian Coye, on Sunday Frazer says that she will be undergoing surgery to replace two valves in her heart. But the process, which will be done at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, costs six thousand dollars. Today, she is asking the public to assist her in financing her life-saving surgery.
