Support for The Carlson Family

In early 2018, Deb Carlson began feeling sharp stomach pain, and on March 30th, after a series of visits, scans, and consultations, received the devastating diagnosis of a very rare pancreatic cancer.  Less than 1% of pancreatic cancer patients have this form of cancer, and there is no cure.

Deb fought hard for three months, going through chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and numerous visits to doctors and other health providers, trying to find answers and pain relief.      Deb spent as much time as she could with her loved ones, practicing her lifestyle of "Hygge" and cherishing her moments with others, and connecting with the world around her. 

As her family and friends have learned of this news, this account was set up in response to help cover Deb’s significant out-of pocket medical expenses, personal living expenses for the family, and to help cover lost wages for Deb and Bob’s time away from work.

Sadly, Deb's courageous battle ended on June 30th at 2:16am, as she passed peacefully, and became an angel.

Her story is here:, .   

The Carlson family - Bob, Audrey, Chet, and beloved chickens Ella, Olive and Gladys need your help - any and all financial assistance will be greatly appreciated.  Deb wanted only to know that her family would be OK after she passed, and before she passed, was overwhelmed with the love and support she felt from her community.  Please continue to support Deb by spreading the word and contributing if you are able.
