She has survived a house fire, two bouts with cancer, a stroke, and heart failure. She has wanted to share her story of survival, hoping to inspire, encourage, and give hope to others.

    As I read the story of Ms. Debra's life I smiled. Yes, smiled. I smiled because being acquainted with her, I know her as a quiet, spiritual, God fearing woman. One would never know that she had literally walked through fire to get where she is today. And her faith is unwavering. She is truely an inspiration.
