As on on looker you would never have known Debbie was fighting the fight of her life as she continued to have a huge smile on her face everyday, ok maybe you might notice the super short hair cut she sports but that girl can rock anything even a paper bag would look good on her. No matter what was going on she was happy and everyone loved her. How selfish are we in our everyday lives that we complain about everything and someone going thru this battle with Breast Cancer can stand strong, carry on and not complain about a thing when she deserves to be angry with the world? I know I have been.
I cried the most this morning when I had to tell another girlfriend about Debbie's passing, this friends name is Faith and she too is battling stage 4 Breast Cancer -not only is Faith going thru this but TWICE in the last 12 years. Faith is our miracle girl and fights a strong fight. This is such a terrible disease. Faith can climb mountains and I believe her mamma named her well :) Debbie & Faith came together thru a fundraiser that was held for Debbie this past year.
**For those that may not know, a Maltese cross with a line through it denotes a loss to the fire fighter family.
Debbie was a mother of 2 sons and a charge Paramedic and Firefighter with us here at SCFD.
