As many of you may have heard by now, our beloved Angel Debbie McMurdie has been challenged with a major health experience.

On Thursday, April 18th, Debbie and her husband Mark went to a local Imaging Center where they were informed 12-15 lesions had been found in Debbie's brain, including one behind her eye, which she has been challenged with since October, 2017. The doctor accidentally left silicone oil in her eye during her first surgery, to reattach her retina, from when one of her dog children's tails hit her eye, detaching the retina. She then had three additional cataracts surgeries that followed.

Debbie and Mark were then informed the doctors believed the lesions had spread to her lung, pineal and adrenals. They thought it was possibly melanoma however Debbie chose not to do a biopsy, knowing biopsies spread cancer, if it is cancer. They also encouraged her to have a steroid injection to help her to be able to think more clearly as well as to take an anti-seizure drug, considering her brain was very inflammed. They also recommended a  flu vaccine as well as aggressive radiation, chemo, surgery, etc. Debbie said no to their recommendations considering her awareness of how to support the body naturally. The doctors gave her a few weeks, maybe a month, if she didn't do anything they suggested. As I sit here and write this out, I am realizing it has been one day short of three weeks since Debbie and Mark received this information and Debbie is still here with us, doing slightly better day by day, per Mark's daily correspondence and our time with her.

Debbie chose to stay focused and strong in her belief in the naturopathic world as well as her faith. We are supporting Debbie with such choices along with her incredible husband, Mark, and her beautiful sisters, Gail and Janet.

We have also realized Michelle Smith, one of Debbie's incredible new Young Living angel leaders/business partners, entered Debbie's life for a reason a couple years ago. Michelle has committed her life’s work to empower the planet, one person at a time. She is a well-known Quantum Biofeedback Specialist and has been certified in the use of Quantum Biofeedback by the NTCB (National Therapeutic Certified Board). We are including her website in case you wish to learn more about her.  http://www.quoce.net

Throughout Michelle's career, she has helped to support nine clients with stage four cancer, successfully, including herself. I have been supporting Michelle in supporting Debbie through this entire experience. Michelle and I have been donating a large amount of our own time and money to Debbie as we believe in her and love her unconditionally. We have been incorporating Michelle's Quantum Biofeedback expertise, various supplements, Michelle's DC foot detox bath, nutritional protocols and are working with Debbie's Young Living essential oils and essential oil infused supplements to support all systems of her body.

We have established this go fund me account in hopes of manifesting some additional financial support for Debbie. Debbie has given so much of her selfless time, love and passion to her Great Dane family along with her Young Living Company of Angels family, in countless ways. She has also helped so many of us in supporting our fellow humans and animals naturally, without ever charging any of us for her time and consultations. It is now our time to give back to her:

+($1,200 - $200/month for six months)
Her Young Living orders have been a bit larger since the diagnosis

We are realizing the value in investing in Debbie's own DC foot detox bath as helping to detox Debbie is the first, key component, to support her through this journey.

+($240 - $40/month for six months)
We would also like to be able to cover the gas for another one of Debbie's fabulous Young Living leaders, Cecilia Gonzales, a wonderful caretaker as well, to come out once a week and help Debbie and Mark out, while Michelle and I continue our bi-weekly visits.

+($360 - Additional, Miscellaneous expenses, etc. or possibly to cover the gas for an additional weekly caretaker volunteer)
Totaling $3,000
If donating some of your time is a better option for you...

+If you have any caretaker experience or are open to some easy training, Mark would be so very grateful as he needs to be able to get back to work. Mark could really use some help looking after Debbie a couple days a week, or even a couple of volunteers visiting once a week, along with Cecilia's once a week support. "When!" the funds flow in, we wold like to cover your gas to and from Debbie's.

+Mark would also be most grateful for any volunteers who could come out and clean the main living area of their home along with some basic organizing.

+Coordinating a Meal Train would also be so incredible if any of you wish to help set this up.

+Lastly, if you can consider donating any of your Young Living points to Debbie, please let either Michelle or myself know so we can guide you to the correct products. Debbie is currently in need of more Inner Defense and can always use more NingXia. "When!" the funds flow in, we can cover your shipping costs for your points order, if you wish.

I have created a "Closed" Facebook Group called "Supporting our Beloved Angel Debbie" in order for us to be able to have a more dynamic discussion to coordinate our efforts there more easily there than in this static GoFundMe posting. You should be able to find it just by doing a Facebook search. Please reach out to Michelle or myself if you are not able to find it or would just simply like to be added to it.

Please consider reaching out to Michelle or myself first before reaching out to Debbie as we have to be very careful not to overwhelm her with too many communications.

Two weeks ago, we reached out to our Young Living Company of Angels community to hold space and prayers for our beloved Angel Debbie. Thank you all so very much for your profoundly beautiful prayers in our group and of course outside our group. Please help Debbie, Mark and family by continuing to hold space and prayers for her as she proceeds to win this battle! Always Victory!

If you are in Debbie's Young Living organization, or have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to me, Laura Norris, at 916.705.7285, for additional support. You're also welcome to reach out to me in the aforementioned Facebook group or via my Facebook direct messaging.

Hello beautiful ones. We have increased the campaign amount from $3,000 to $15,000. The outpouring of love and financial support has been so amazing. We surpassed our original goal by $1,000!

Mark called for an ambulance for Debbie last night. Debbie was admitted to the hospital for what will most likely be billed as two full days. She was admitted with a worsening condition of her previous diagnosis of brain lesions with her brain now swelling and herniation beginning. Once this starts there isn’t any stopping it, per her nurse. We decided to have them administer some steroids but no aggressive measures were taken, just comfort care followed by palliative care including hospice.

Debbie has since been transported home, as of late afternoon today where she is resting with her beautiful fur children and her incredible husband Mark.

Please help our beloved Debbie and Mark to continue to vote victory and believe in miracles while supporting their new financial situation.

Thank you all from our hearts to yours for the miraculous love you all have for and are showing to our beloved Debbie.
