Debbie   wanted to share with her Family and Friends, and  to explain and  keep everyone updated and  informed  on what she will be doing in the next couple of weeks.

 About 22 years ago Debbie was diagnosed  with Myasthenia Gravis.  This is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease, that cause weakness in the skeletal muscles.
  After years of different treatments, too numerous to write, she is  now in remission.                                                                                                                                                      

As the   story goes, good news comes with bad and  after struggling with low platelets in her  blood ,  many treatments and blood transfusions, Debbie's doctors have diagnosed her  with a new disease MDS,or  Myelodysplastic Syndrome. 

This is a condition that occurs when the blood forming cells in the bone marrow are damaged. This damage leads to low numbers of one or more type of blood cells, MDS is considered a type of cancer. After consulting with her doctors and getting a second opinion , Debbie and Keith's decision for the best treatment for Debbie  was a Bone Marrow Transplant,(stem cell transplant).  Debbie's  Family was tested for a match, and  the best matches came from two strangers who through their  generous donation, they are  so thankful and grateful  for their gift . 
Not wanting to be defined by her   illness, Debbie is  so much more.
Debbie is  a Mother , Wife, Daughter , Sister, and Friend and has so much more ,  Life and Love  to give.   Debbie will  fight and beat this and kick cancer ...with   Family and Friends and most of all, the  Love and Faith of God and his guidance , Debbie will beat this.  Please pray for Debbie and her Family  and the many others who are going through their difficult journeys.

 With God, her  Faith ,the   Power of Pray ,  family and her  friend's  we will  all pray  and  support Debbie  in this long  journey...... 

Debbie is asking that her condition not be shared on social media , but to correspond through this site , and we will keep everyone updated....
