Special thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family as you prepare to celebrate His birth. I know this is time that be tiring even for those of us that do not have disease to fight, so my prayer for you is for stamina. Also for Jesus' peace, joy and guidance.

GREAT NEWS!!! I shared it with Grandma while she was here for Thanksgiving. I received the family portrait and WOW everyone looks great inc. the Franklins. So very sorry that you are in so much pain while receiving such good news. I will continue to pray for relief from the pain and for the doctors to be able to stop/cure the cause of all the pain. Hope you have a GREAT week. Love ya.

Debbie! I just woke up out of a most bizarre dream about you and Dewey coming to my house and there were loads of people here and you were about to make some kind of announcement, and I was on the edge of my seat, but then several people started moving around and got up and we got interrupted. Then everyone started leaving, and you two said you'd be back soon, but that you had to go help some of these people. And while you were gone wild rats started getting into the house (not my rats, mind you, but dirty, mangy ones - some with babies) and they kept trying to steal your stuff. One actually got out the door with something (a stack of red and green crocheted pot-holders, I believe). Then I started locking all the doors to keep them out, and finally you returned. And I was dying to hear your news, but I had to run out and try to get back your pot-holders, which I did, but when I walked up to you the look in your eyes told me the news was good. Then I woke up.

So, when I awoke I immediately ran to my computer to find out what the test results were... you know, I had been meaning to all week, but...

And wow! Praise our Lord and Father! I am so glad to hear such good news. Our family's thanksgiving will continue. And prayers for healing will not cease! God bless you my dearest!

(p.s. Keith and TM and Rick were there too, and Keith had written out this speech that he was going to give, and I kept trying to read it, but it was several pages long and I kept dropping the pages, or getting them in the wrong order...Dreams!) (p.p.s. green and red crocheted pot holders?????)

Debbie, We had a great Thanksgiving, just as you did. Jack Allen, and his wife Colleen, came from Orlando, as did Van. Of course, we are blessed to have Holly,her husband Chip, and her daughter Laurel(21 months), living here in Melbourne, as does April and her daughter Abby(5 1/2). We were all thrilled with the good news! We'll keep praying. God is so good! Love, Jack

Debbie, I am so sad that you are in pain and are still suffering this way. It's still in our Lords hands tho' and I know he loves you enough to die for you. Stay strong. Take what ever you need to be pain free! I know I cope better when I don't feel pain. Perhaps your body needs to sleep to fight the disease?

Be strong in the Lord and keep your eyes on the goal...Healing and peace.

Hi Debbie:

I will pray that the Lord lifts your tiredness, physical, mental, spiritual, emotional. Remember Paul's surprising words, that he rejoiced in his weakness, because that is when God's strength was most evident. And sometimes it is okay to be tired..know what I mean? Love to you and yours.

You remain in my prayers for your healing. I feel your pain and fatigue. Comfort comes in many forms, physical and spritual. I know that you find comfort in the prayers and concerns of other. You are walking in a valley of shadows, but God promises a brighter tomorrow in whatever the outcome brings. My prayers also include the healers that they may provide you with comfort too.

Dearest Debbie & Dewey,
We just returned from Cambria again, where we hung Dewey's latest painting and it looks magnificent. I found a couple of Aurora's dolls outside in the plants so I will send those to her so that she can love them and care for them!
Ed and I got up at 12:30 am and drove high up in the hills to observe the Leonid Meteor Storm since it was foggy at the beach. It was truly incredible.
You are especially in my prayers for tomorrow when you find out your test results.
Love you,

Though it has been said before, your love and faith and strength is like a spring shower to us when we go to your webpage to read news. Markus and Kristina ask for you. Markus just turned 11 yesterday and is growing up mightily fast. Next week is Harry Potter week, and december is Lord of the Rings.

Dearest Debbie,

I did my own Debbie fast today. I prayed for you and worked on promoting the 'Healing Beauty' CD. It was a good day. I got a great deal done. I would like to encourage people in our network to fast on fridays until the end of the year. People who are interested can e-mail me. I would also like to encourage all of your own ones, to help us to promote the 'Healing Beauty' CD to the ends of the earth. Christmas is just around the bend and every home needs some healing beauty. Good things. Angels watch over you.

Greetings to all of you from the Hills and the Franklins.
Debbie, I read that you have reached a point where the pain is too much for you. Knowing what you have already gone through, without a word of complaint, I fear to think how much pain you have now.
I have been very "restless" about the present treatment, which works so slowly. I am happy, and hopeful that next week will start you on a new, aggressive attack on this enemy that is attacking you.
It is our prayer that this cancer has not spread and that you and your doctor will embark on this new treatment before the week is out.
When all of this is behind us, we can all sit back and say, "Finally, I have really and truly, learned how to pray".
We pray for Dewey and Aurora and all your family. We pray for you and that you may continue feeding your brain with positive, healing energy. We are anxious to recieve the c.ds.
May God bless all of you and keep you confident and positive.
Love from all of us.
Mom and Dad.

Dearest Deb, I've been in Florida the past week with mom. She's been in the hospital for a month now, but will finally come home tomorrow and move to Texas with Pierce in 2 weeks. What a time of change it will be for her. My heart ached as I read your latest update. I am so sorry for the pain and tiredness that you feel. I will be fasting and praying tomorrow that the test results come out well and that you feel the love and comfort of all of your friends and the comfort of God's arms as He wraps them around you during this difficult time. You are never far from my thoughts or prayers. Trish

It's Mo from the 1992 summer Paris program. When Jen Morin called me and told me the news about your condition, I was shocked and sad. I went through a box of tissues just reading your website. But you are an inspiration!! Your strength and courage is unbelievable. I am so inspired by you! I understand how Aurora is your source of strength, because I am a mother as well to a 6 month old named Isabella. I know she means the world to you. So you must stay strong because she needs you! I am anxious to see how your tests come back. I will pray for you! Lastly, I live in Mill Valley, 10 minutes from San Francisco, so if you ever need anything from this area, please let me know. Chinatown in SF is filled with herbs! I am looking forward to the CD. Hope you feel better. Love, Mo

I will be picking G-Ma up this weekend and bringing her to our home for Thanksgiving. Cole Laurel and Amanda will all be home, too.
I pray that Thanks giving will be just that for the Franklins!!!! A day of thankfulness for God's gracious healing. We are waiting for the complete miracle.

I would also like to suggest a fast this friday. All that can join me please do. God can do anything. We would all love to see this problem as a part of Deb's past and not a current battle.

Hi Deb,
Just read the latest news and am sorry that you are in so much pain. Please know that we continue to pray for you, always hoping for an amazing breakthrough that would indeed be an answer to the many prayers.
We watch you struggle through and always remain hopeful. Bill's sister's niece, Dayna Curry, is one of the 8 detainees (prisoners!) being held by the Taliban in Afghanistan and we watch and listen to the news of what's going on there, just as we watch your website to see the latest news.
Both of you, you and Dayna, have such a wonderful outlook about your situations. Your trust is on the Lord and his everlasting love...He is our refuge!
Indeed, He is!
We're in North Carolina visiting our daughter Kristy and her sweet family.
The weather is wonderful, as is the company. :-) It's cold at times, like down in the upper 20's, but so nice to go for walks and to be out in the fall air.
Love the smell of smoke rising from the fireplaces, while walking through the dry, crunching leaves. The trees are still pretty: red, yellow, gold, deep purple, browns...I love this!
The squirrels and chipmunks are scurrying everywhere, doing their thing to get ready for the winter ahead. The cardinals are at the bird feeders, peeping their sweet chirps, keeping a close eye on us as we "eye them!" Lots of birds everywhere.
Ah Fall, my time of year!
We spent some time with your dad while he was in Melbourne and as always it was great to see him. He brought us some information that may be helpful for Bill's paralysis. We will pursue it when we get back home, as there are other things that occupy our thoughts at this time.
I love your mom and dad and miss seeing them on a regular basis, but am happy and thankful that they are there with you'all.
They need you "kids" and you need them!
Well Deb...I will close for now, as I lift you up to Him who is able to do all things.
I pray that Dewey can feel His presence as he helps you through your trials.
I'm grateful that He has allowed you to go to Atlanta and to see the caring doctors who will help you, with the Lord's hand, to get better.
Much love, Barbara
Consider yourself hugged and in return hug your folks for me.

Dearest Debbie and family,

I am a friend of Peggy Keeton. My 34 year old husband, Duane, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor 17 months ago. Duane's diagnosis came as a complete shock to us as he had absolutely no symptoms prior to the sudden seizure he suffered. We have 3 young children (our daughter Lilly was just 5 1/2 weeks old at the time of his diagnosis) I wanted to share with you a praise which will hopefully be an encouragement to you. Duane's tumor was fast growing and larger than the size of a lemon. However, today we received his MRI report from yesterdays MRI and we have only good news to share. Duane had 2 brain surgeries last year, however GOD IS AWESOME! He is providing healing in my husbands body. May you continue to receive the blessings and peace of a powerful, healing God. I don't understand why such young families must endure such hardship, however, I KNOW that I would not ever exchange the closeness to God that we now feel for anything. We will continue to pray for you.

Fully Reyling on God,
Cheri Lewis (for Duane, Luke, Parker, and Lilly Elizabeth)

I was with you in London, summer of '96. I still have Dewey's cartoon of Gose's Honors Group in front of Guernica, and I still remember learning harmonic throat singing from your friend, and I remember Debbie making our temporary housing feel like home, in so many little ways every day. Sigh. You guys rock. My stomach happily flip-flops just remembering. Sooo, I want to send on my best wishes and positive energies -- for the past, present, and future.

Warm love,

Hi Debbie,
It was great to read your November 1 update and to see you in the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral. I am thinking of driving to Chartres during the X-mas break to walk it there. If I remember correctly, you said it was on Fridays that it was cleared of chairs (I'll check what day you were there on your website). Karin and I met Colette and Lisa in Metz last Saturday. Lisa had been with her in Paris for a week and we met halfway from Heidelberg to pick her up. We parked at the Metz camping grounds and I had a silent prayer for you, Dewey and Aurora.
We love you three very much and hope to see you soon, be it in the States or in Europe. Your friends,
Lisa, Karin and Daniel Daugherty

Hi Debbie,
Thank you for the CDs. They are great! I enjoyed Tuva Farewell, She Moves through the Fair -- you are singing with Dew --waou - Tegsh, I Love You, the Godspel Choir... They are all great. The other CD is for my parents in Paris where I'll go end of Nov. It was indeed a very powerful thing to do. Je pense bien a toi, a Dewey qui t'accompagne et a Little Aurora qui ressemble a un petit soleil.
Baisers, nicole

Debbie and Dewey (and Aurora),
So sorry I missed you on your way back through Camarillo. It was my parents last day in California, so I was having trouble coordinating everything.
I love the CD and play it often and have given a few of them away already. Thanks for keeping us informed on the website. Praying for you continually.
Love and miss you much. Can't wait for you to come to California again!

I received the CD this week. I have already shared my extra copy with several people that have been praying for you. It is wonderful. Very diferent than I expected. Your signing voice is great, no apologies necessary for anything. We are very sorry things didn't work out for our visit. Hopefully next time. Love and hope to you all.

Dearest Debbie,
Although we have not meet physically- we have spiritually, as I have known Khris and Mike Bridges
for many years. When I visited them just a few weeks back Kris spoke of your spirit and your love.
You, Debbie, have accomplished more for Him in a few days than many people have over a lifetime.
To be made aware of people that are filled with the peace that passes all understanding, despite the earthly
circumstances, testifies to the glory, majesty, and power of the Holy Spirit. Although our paths
most likely will not pass this side of eternity, when we both have fulfilled our allotted days on
this earth, I look forward to embracing you in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Because of Jesus
PS. Looking forward to receiving your CD

Mes chriris,
Au coeur du tourbillon qu'est devenue ma vie, je trouve enfin un petit moment pour vous. Je n'ai plus le temps de rien, et au fond cela me plait. Mais parfois c'est sans doute un peu trop ...
Je ne suis plus alle chez vous depuis une ternit, et j'en suis dsole : la fac me prend tout mon temps, mais j'adore ce que j'y fait ! A chaque fois que c'est difficile, je pense toi Debbie : tu as fait les mmes tudes, ce n'tait pas ta langue marternelle et tu y es arrive ! Alors en ton honneur je voudrais russir moi aussi...
Depuis un mois je n'ai pas vu Claudine et Christophe, mais je crois savoir que eux aussi sont trs occups !!! J'espre que tu sais LA NOUVELLE...?
A partir du 2 dcembre je ne travaillerais plus que 3 jours par semaine la Tortinire ce qui devrait me permettre d'une part de rviser mes cours - ce que bien sr je ne parviens pas faire de manire rgulire en ce moment - et d'autre part de rattraper un peu le retard que j'ai pris dans mes amitis !
Je vous garde encore et toujours une place de choix dans mon coeur et mes prires.

Debbie, I am a stranger to you but a brother in Christ. I am praying God heals your cancer. I am a musician and appreciate the CD that is put together in your honor. I am from Scotland, and am living in the USA. I produce the Scottish resource and feature website Again, I wish you strength and healing. God bless you and your family.

Debbie, Dewey and Aurora,
My continued thoughts and prayers are with you on your continued journey. I can close my eyes and see the beautiful California coast on your drive up to San Francisco. And, to walk the Grace Catherdral Labyrinth after walking the one at Chartres Cathedral (although from the picture, it looked like you had much nicer weather!) We've been having a beautiful Autumn season here in France with wonderfully warm sunny days. I'm waiting to receive my Healing Beauty CD - to sit back and take it in.
Continued love,

Have you listened to Harry Potter yet? Isaac and Me are Harry Potter fans. We are going to see the movie when it comes out.
We hope to see you as soon as we can

Dearest Debbie,

I just received my copies of the Healing Beauty CD. I headed for the study where the sunlight streams through the French Doors and the trees cast puzzle shadows across the floor. Reclining with my eyes closed, I listened to the varied sounds with my ears, heart, soul and mind. And I felt the healing that such a collaboration creates. My favorites are: If I Rise, As the Skies Turn and She Moved Through the Fair. (After seeing so many photos of you and your family and reading your words, I have longed to hear your voice. How other-worldly it is. How peaceful.)

I want you to know how much you are giving everyday to us - to all those who you share your life and story with. Two years ago, my husband and I lost a baby early in the pregnancy. In September, we were overjoyed to get the news of another baby. But, a week ago, the doctor told us that we wouldn't have this baby either. In my pain, anger, grief, outrage, I have turned to think of you and the love, hope and faith you continue to live by even with the fear and agony of your cancer. My fury at God disappears because of you- because of the blessed picture of love, forgiveness, strength that you are. I am beginning to see the hope and faith again in my life- I can never stop loving my God, my Lord and Savior. His blessings are many. His comforts come in an image, a word, a song, a picture...just when you need them.

Thank you for being you and living faithfully for our Father. Thank you for blessing me, helping to heal me.

My love and prayers,


Shannon (Morley) Earls

Hi Debbie! I'm so glad to hear that you're still feeling up to yet another trip! How strange it must be to be in Washigton DC at a time like this in our history...I was great to see you while you were in CA. Eventually, maye you'll get your pictures!!! Hope you're feeling great and having a good time. Love you!

Dear Debbie, Dewey and Aurora. It seems my other letter didn`t get through, just the very end. We want you to know the CDs arrived. We love it! It`s sure to be a success. I met a former collegue of yours last week Debbie. We had about a five minute chat on the shuttle from the Denver Airport. She and her husband worked with you several years ago at Pepperdin U. in Calif. before you left for London. Her name is Martha Thomas. She sends her best wishes, prayers and thoughts to you in your struggle with cancer. We all continue to remember you in our prayers daily. You continue to remain so strong in this battle and are willing to search for anything new that may help you. You are an inspiration, and Dewey is also the way he remains always at your side in support for you. A big hug to all of you from us. With our Love nad Prayers, Aunt Shirley and Uncle Jim

I just want to say thank you for coming to Pengilly hall at Pepperdine a couple weeks ago. I've had a scare like yours before and I'm always checking to make sure im ok. But your visit has encouraged me to be able to talk to my roommates about cancer, and I thank you for that because it is so important that as friends together we need to help protect each other.

The conference in DC sounds fascinating. I continue to be impressed and encouraged by the way you keep researching and pursuing treatment, and at the same time, trusting that you are in God's hands. That's a tricky business, I know, but God has gifted you with the skill and heart for that work. Still, I pray for your courage and for his guidance in all the treatment fishing. Remember what Jesus did for the disciples fishing trip?... net after net without a single fish... and then, Voila! Hang in there, dear one. Love and prayers are with you daily in the Gerard home!

Hi Debbie, Hi Dewey,

Karin and I will be going to Metz to meet Colette on Saturday (Lisa will be staying with her for a few days). I can't go to Metz without thinking of you and Richard and great friendships. Karin and I will sit on the bench on the camping grounds and pray for your healing. We love you very much.

We want one of your CD's. In addition to that, I am contacting a friend of mine who lives in Seattle. He is Andrew McDiarmid and he has his own radio show which is broadcast in various parts of the US. I will ask him to publicise the CD for you.

All best wishes. In His joy . . .

Hi Debbie,

Went through Air Force pilot training with your dad and saw him at the reunion in Orlando last week. We, too, are going through a similar challenge and share your strength and faith in the One up there. You are so fortunate in having such a great family and group of supporting friends. We welcome having you in our prayers.

Hi Debbie,
I was so disappointed to miss seeing you (again!) at church when you were in California. Glenn said you were looking well and he enjoyed visiting with you and your family. I had been having back spasms and stayed home that day. It turns out I have some degenerative discs and arthritis in my back, so I guess I can expect problems from time to time. I sure hope I don't miss seeing you the next time you're in our area! You continue to be in our thoughts and prayers. We look forward to receiving the CD.

Love, Judy & Glenn

Your story gives hope to people. What a warm loving one. My daughter Michele, who is 31, just found out she has basal cell cancer. She is married and has a 3 year old son. It was located on her forehead and she had it removed about a week ago. The Prognosis is good. Boy when it hits home its hard. But I pray everyday for her. I just wanted to let you know that you will be in my prayers everyday. You have such a wide family of friends & the Lord in your corner. I pray you will beat this. God Bless, Esther
