If there was ever a near perfect example and embodiment of selflessness, our mother is it. As the mother of dozens of children, step children, and over 20 grandchildren, Debbie has been actively involved in raising and lovingly caring for all of us for most of her life. Through good times and hard times, her spirit has shined as a beacon to all whom have associated with her, and her impact on those whom she has touched will truly affect the world for generations. She has always been the first to jump at an opportunity to serve or care for others, from flying out to help with the birth of a new grandchild, to spending weeks at a time in support of loved ones, and to staying months away from her home to help one of her daughters who had brain surgery. From writing weekly journal entries for every single child for their first years of life, to making after-school snacks, endless piano lessons, countless chauffer pick-ups and drop offs, or just cleaning up a scrapped knee, she has been there for anyone who has needed her. Now she needs us. Debbie has recently been diagnosed with skin and breast cancer. Her current financial burdens include debilitating long term costs of skin and breast cancer treatments, deductibles, up-front costs for procedures, prescriptions costs, wig costs, future reconstruction surgery, and other unforseen costs that come with years of cancer treatment and prevention. If you have wanted to show your love, care, and support to this amazing, giving, loving person during this hard time and didn't quite know how to go about doing it, this would be a great opportunity and any small amount will be much appreciated. Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts.
