Deborah, (my sister) a mother of three , married her soulmate January 2015. She had moved and had a new job. It seemed she had everything going for her. Few months after her wedding she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer : stage four adrenal cortical carcinoma - life expectancy is less than 5 year. This cancer is very aggressive.She has already had a very complicated surgery to remove the tumor/cancer. The chance of the cancer returning is 90%. She will have to travel few hours every day starting July 6, 2015 for radiation. After that she will under go chemotherapy. Deborah has been a nurse for years. Now she is  the patient. Our family-my sister needs  your help. We are all so overwhelmed by how sick Deborah has gotten. We are trying to remain positive as well as my sister. A positive attitude is a  positive outcome.Your donation will help with any expenses she may have as she Fights for Life!  Update: 2017 cancer has spread to lung, doctors give her months to live. She remains with the same positive attitude as she has had through out all of this. She is still going to try a combination of medicine thru an infusion at the hospital in Charleston. I know her body is tired. Please support by donating to help cover all that is needed as she fights on.

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that Deborah’s battle with Cancer ended Monday January 1st 2018. It has been a long hard journey mentally, physically and financially. She fought a hard long battle. She knew she had such a big support system and she knew she was truly blessed.
Families are Forever! At the end of her journey here on earth she knew her family was with her. Her husband had been an amazing blessing to my sister and the love they shared will be everlasting. Her 3 children were also a huge support through her battle with cancer and were a huge blessing to her.
The family wants to thank everyone who was apart of Deborah’s life and to everyone who sent her encouraging words. She was extremely grateful and felt an overwhelming amount of love and support.
The memorial service will be held on January 13th 2018 at 1pm. Located at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at 835 North Belair Rd. Evans Ga 30809 #dgfightforlife

Past few weeks my sister’s health has really declined. Christmas Day she fell hit her head and the ambulance came and took her to the hospital. She has a gash on her eye and was in pain. I know she really enjoyed her three children and daughter in law being there to spend Christmas with her and her husband. So then yesterday my sister had a couple of falls and hurt her ankle, and all this has led to her being bed ridden now. She has hospice aid come in to bath her and she’s on liquid morphine to keep her comfortable. My sister having a difficult time swallowing as well. My sisters hospice nurse says my sister doesn’t have long at all, maybe not to New Years and if she makes it to then not long after. Please continue to pray that she is comfortable and out of pain. Please pray for her husband and children and all of our family as this is very difficult to see a loved one like this. Please pray for my parents- losing a child , I can’t imagine.
If you can donate please do, funds are needed as my sisters husband is home with Debbie. #dgfightforlife
I got to sing to hymns to my sister on FaceTime tonight as she slept. I know she feels the angels around her. I love her soooo much.. sisters forever ❤️❤️❤️
This was a week ago in her pretty Christmas Pjs. She’s showing love with candy canes to all her friends and family

Friday Dec.15,2017 ... While we are all sharing in the Christmas spirit, there are others going through very devastating trials. It's very hard watching people you love and care about going through something so hard..... my sister remains on hospice. My niece flys in on Saturday from college and my sisters children will spend Christmas with her. Need all the prayers and support. Please help if you can. No donation is to small. Wishing everyone a blessed holiday. #dgfightforlife

With the holidays it makes me think of so many people. Some I may not even know. There's someone fighting a battle with their health, there's someone that doesn't have a job and no place to live so they are living out of there car. There are those that are mourning the loss of a spouse, child, parent, aunt,uncle, sibling or grandparent. You never know what someone is going thru. I challenge you to be kind, lend a hand, show a smile. - it will make a difference in someone's day.
I'm thankful for all of you that have showed support to my sister and our family through these difficult times.

My sister has not been doing well. Both of her legs are swollen and she can’t even barley bend her leg, she has to use her hand to lift them. Her hospice nurse told her she needed to stay of her feet. She has been dealing with this swelling for several months but it has gotten worse. Her breathing has gotten worse. Her pain is bad, but she has to get that morphine and her other pain meds in her to help that. Normally when someone is on hospice you are on it for 6 months at a time. You come off for a bit then can get put back on. Well my sister has been on it since September but she will continue to stay on it because of her condition.
She wants to meet her grandbaby so bad that is due in March. I pray this day will come and she can meet and hold baby Landen.
Donations for my sister are crucial. Although hospice pays for everything she needs. The funds are needed to help with living expenses. My sister’s husband is trying to stay at home with my sister as much as he can but the bills continue to come in. As much as I would like to be there all the time with her as well as our parents we do live a few hours away and sometimes our own health is preventing us from traveling. That saddens my heart when she ask me if I’m coming and I have to explain why I can not. Breaks my heart more than anything. My sister will have her memorial here in Augusta /Martinez when that time comes. But for now ....Please continue to pray for her and the family. I pray for a miracle!! God Bless #dgfightforlife
