Hi Debs, I just read your up date. I will pray hard about the liver mets and your wound. The Vit C protocol made the news in the UK. It seems that the medical profession are starting to take it seriously. I am praying for Aurora. I can't imagine how she's feeling, but I know God does.He's carrying her all the time. Dewey is in my prayers too. I know it is hard on the carers too. Debbie you amaze me as always and I love the way you strive towards a better future. You are beautiful and your light shines. Stay strong, keep working towards your healthy future and God will take care of the rest.
Much love
Carol. x

Hello my friends! Hugs and Kisses to you three. Debbie, I dreamed about you the other night and felt like I had actually been with you, and of course I had. You looked very healthy and beautiful so I felt good about the dream. I have put my house in OC on the market so that has been stressful but this, too, shall pass. I miss you all.

Hi Deb, Dewey and Aurora...you all are especially in our hearts as this new treatment gets started and we are enjoying having Simon and Nadage here as I helped them with English today as I do with the other people. Roland is always busy doing the Lord's work for presentations and studies. We will be visiting with Arlin and Pamela here soon. Wish you all could be here too and hope that you have lots of sunshine. It is rainy here today. love you much and you are in our prayers and hug Phyllis when you see her too from us if we don't get to see her.

Dear Debbie, Dewey & Aurora,
Thank you for the recent news, and the details about just what we can hold in our thoughts for you all. I jogged past your Venice apartment yesterday with Mister and maybe you felt the long distance smile (& wag). I celebrated my birthday two days ago with a tour of the King Tut exhibit. The translated inscription off a drinking cup from 3,000 years ago brought me to tears and I hope you will like it, too:
"May your ka (life force) live;
May you spend millions of years, O you who love Thebes,
Sitting with your face towrad the north wind, while your eyes perceive happiness."
Sending this ancient wish and blessing to you three!
love, Nina

Debbie, May the strength you need to carry on with this battle be drawn from all those who know and love you. You are the most amazingly positive person I have ever had the pleasure to know. No matter what is happening to you physically, I can always hear the smile in your heart when I recieve your updates. Much love and healing!

It is good to hear that you are doing so well. I think of you often and pray for you guys often. I hope that your molecular therapy goes well. Did you know that an electron is so small that if you blew up the Nucleus (made of protons and neutrons) of the average molecule to the size of the earth, an electron would be the size of a grape? If you had a teaspoon of electrons it would weigh 100 million tons. In conclusion, from the greatest to the smallest, God is creator and director of them all. He hold the bonds that bind them; he holds the bonds that created you and those will uphold you until the last molecular exchange. His wisdom is found in the smallest of particals, his wisdon is in you, I hear it in your words, they come from within. His love abides in you even the end of the world.

I love getting to see the photos of your life back at Les Meurs. What a special memory for Aurora to have of your parents spending time there! I know she'll look forward to many more of these visits to come. The sunflowers pictures looks fake: did Dewey figure out how to do that on the computer ;) Debbie, I am so sad to hear about Cindy, so sad. I am so GLAD to learn of the energy you're feeling since no pain. Let's get that wound healed. Hello and love from everyone chez Ellzey

Hi Aunt Debbie. This is Chipper. I was just thinking about you so, and hoping you were doing good. Our family keeps you in our thoguhts and prayers all day, and we continue to hope for the best. I hope we can visit you soon. I was in sunday school and heard a cool passage. It goes If God is for us then who can be against us. I know that God will always be with you.

Dear Debbie, Dewey, and Aurora, So glad to get the message that you are feeling stronger. We continue to pray for your wound to heal soon. Wish we could be closer so we could help can tomatoes and also eat a few with you. I am happy that Dewey is finding time to paint, Gloria and Frank tells us what an artist he is. Hope that Aurora is enjoying school. It is quite an adjustment for the whole family when the little one starts school. We keep praying for all of you. Thanks for sharing your updates with us.

Dearest Debbie,

I think of you often, and am keeping your healing and health in my prayers. Cindy is now with the angels, and last week was hard. I did a reading at her memorial. But seeing photos of your smiling face -- and shiny new haircut (one I've sported myself) -- on this site made me happy. Please be well.

May your sleep be restful and just what you need now.

Dear Dewey, Debbie and Aurora,
In Case you wonder who Lenora Stidham is, "she sends messages of healing to you", she is the Mother of our preacher here in Palm coast. When she starts praying God hears her prayers and they are answered, becuase she is a rightious person indeed. We are all very fortunate to have her on our side. We all enjoy the photos, keep them comming.
We love you and are very proud of your faith, through it all, God is good! Frank and Gloria Franklin

Debbie, it's early here in the balmy state of South Carolina. My family is all tucked away sleeping but I am up and since I was thinking of you, I thought a quick note might be nice. Know that you are loved. Know that daily we bring you, Dewey and Aurora before our Father's mercy seat. Thank you for your faithful devotion to Him through this all. Thank you for your devotion to your family and all of us by keeping up such a strong fight. I love you and am looking forward to visiting with you again on the European continent. God bless you.
- Thursday, August 25, 2005 at 05:33:15 (EDT)
Hi Debbie, Dewey, and Aurora,

We're praying that each day finds you feeling a little better, Debbie, and that Dewey and Aurora are doing well. We're glad that Aurora is looking forward to her return to school. What fun to witness her excitement and enthusiasm!

Janine and Steven are expecting their first child (a boy) in about five weeks now. Needless to say, we are all very excited in this household! We've been busy looking at baby items to have on hand over here so that they won't have to cart everything around when coming to visit. That has been fun also.

May God continue to watch over you and bring you healing, love and serenity.

Sending our love,
Judy & Glenn

Hi Debbie. Thinking of you, praying for you. My garden is bringing forth tomatoes and zucchini too! Though we had some cool wet days in early July, we have had a wonderful summer so far. Working at the office each day leaves little time to garden, however. So I have delegated the care of the veggie and flower beds to Ted. He is doing a wonderful job and enjoying it (most of the time). Looking forward to hearing more healing results from your current treatment. Love, Linda.

Hey Debbie,

we're home again and I'm back in the office, which is fine.
My thoughts go to you, Dewey and Aurora. I hope that all the 3 of you find some moments of joy and laughter despite all the pain, fear and worries that you're going through. We're praying for you to be strong and for healing and that the 4th round of chemo will do your body soooo many good things.
I wanted to let you know that Nella says hey and that she thinks of you, too. She is back on crutches again, because she was so unfortunate to fall again. But she is a trooper like you are and will not let herself down. So she climbs up those stairs that lead to her apartment on the 4th floor.
Praying for you and keeping you in my mind.

Deb and Dew,
So good to hear from you. I'm praying for intensified healing in your liver, debbie. I'm thanking God for Dewey's sisters' visit. I'm thanking God for Aurora's excitement about school, and her way of growing smiles and playing often. I'm missing you all. I'm sitting at my desk which faces a window which looks out over our amazing little piece of the woods. God is such an artist. I put your sunflowers picture on my desktop. It reminds me that I am one of the blooms in your field of friends and family, and to pray. I love you, Laura

Hello Debbie, I just wanted to say hello and tell you what an inspiration you and your amazing family are to someone who has never had the pleasure of meeting you . It is always a good moment for me , when I sit down and read your updates, however harrowing the days have been for you, your spirit and the love you all share shines through. It is way to see that when all is as bad as you feel it could be , there is a way back, and above that love conquers all. I was directed to your page, and indeed Deweys website by Sam, who I had the pleaseure of spending time with last year and also early this year. He has the most beautiful picture of Ben and an angel..you will know the one , that Dewey painted for him.. on his wall. I loved it, and hearing Sam speak about it . I pray that you continue to make the wonderful steps forward ...and your health improves more with the excellent therapies that you are looking towards in the next few weeks...Jacquie
- Sunday, August 14, 2005 at 12:24:15 (EDT)
Hi Debbie - I am so happyy to know that you are feeling better, even though you face some pretty difficult challenges. You are well supported and loved...your friends and family and God are watching over you. Your incredible will and wonderful attitude are an inspiration. I admire who and what you are. Sometimes, I am not able to generate the energy to be creative..but that might be because Ted and I are more or less alone with the disease. This is going to change. I am working now (with benefits) and I am going to build myself a support group "par excellance!" Thou hast inspired me yet once again. Much love, much honor and the ultimate grand healing. Linda

Dearest Debbie,

coming back from the wonderful Yosemite Park, I just got hold of a computer at the Sopers home, dear friends of ours here on campus, to check your website. Well, these are good news and again, I must say, that you're a real trooper, because who else would stay that patient while enduring so much pain? It was real touching what you mentioned about Aurora. Isn"t that great that our kids give us so much strength and motivation? They are the best gifts from above we could ever get. I'm happy to hear all this from you and continue to pray for you. We're thinking of you a lot. Hang in there, sweet girl. Thanks for the wonderful sunflowers. That's always the first picture that comes to my mind when I think of Les Meurs. Lots of love to you. Hugs from the 3 Daughertys.

Hi Debs, I am glad you had an opportunity to have a tea party with your little angel. I'm praying for your wound and jaw problems right now and I hope they've improved some. A girl's gotta eat! I hope the next session of chemo goes well. Perhaps this will be the one that sends the mets away for good. Keep taking good care of yourself. I'm glad Dewey's painting and that Aurora is happy in the garden. She finds joy in the smallest of things. God bless you all.

Debbie, regardless of whether or not you took the scripture out of context, if you derived strength from it. I say great! I try to talk to your mom and dad every Sunday at church. I know you miss them, but we ar happy to have them here as a part of our church family. I still pray for you and your family daily. keepup that good positive attitude there are many of us you can delegate to. I' know how happy you are to be able to climb stairs. I still strugle with with my injuries of over seven years, but I know that I am clay in the hands of the master potter, and that he will mold me into the vessel he wants me to be. All of us here in Melbourne love you and someday know you will concur over all. Love Bill Peeler

Hi Debbie and family! Greetings from Madison, Tennessee. Our vegetable garden is in full swing along with large yellow sunflowers, orange mexican sunflowers and multi-colored zinias. Along with swimming and softball, and a quick trip to San Antonio, TX our summer has been full of activity. I was reading in the " Power for Today" daily devotional guide and the entry for August 3 reminded me of you. The title was Missionary or Mercenary? It talked about how a woman with many health problems used her "thorn" to reach out as a missionary of Jesus' love. That is how I see you. Your "breath of fresh air" attitude amongst your trials is constantly refreshing to me. You are a blessing to many. God bless and I hope you are having a better day. Sincerely and much love, Cherri North.

Deb and Dew,
Love and good prayers coming to you from Camarillo. Gene and I and the kids have been enjoying the last three weeks here so much. Lots of reconnecting with good friends. An unexpected blessing on Sunday, having Daniel walk into the church on sunday morning... (a special day, lydia was baptised and my parents and sister/bro-in-law also there for an honoring of my parents tenure with the congregation). Gene and I got to spend the whole afternoon with Daniel and I hope to meet with Karin and Lisa on Friday, before we depart Saturday for Washington. Once again I am thankful for friends with whom we have a special bond because of our mutual ties with you two. Gene and I miss you both sorely. And also continue to pray, and share your story with many others who also pray, and rejoice in the Spirits sustenance for you day by day. I wish for you many more moments and days of "holiday" as we have been blessed to experience here. God's good rest and recuperation. See our smiles in the sunflowers. We are looking on at you. With great love, Laura

Dear Debbie, I am so pleased for you. You sound really upbeat and happy. I will pray that your wound heals quickly and that you just keep on getting better. I imagine Dewey and Aurora are quite relieved to see the changes taking place in you now. They too are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm glad you can rest knowing that the Father is doing the work for you. God Bless you.

Hey sweet Debbie,

what wonderful news to find on a Monday morning!I'm sooo happy for you, but however shocked. I haven't realized that you're in constant pain since last year! That's way too long, so I imagine that you're bouncing around (haha). You're truely a trooper and so is Dewey at your side. I wish you you all the luck, that you need to overcome all this. We will pray that the chemo does more good to you, without any nasty side-effects, that you'll find some time to rest, some precious time to spend with Aurora and Dewey.
Lisa and I will join Daniel this thursday in Malibu and stay 2 weeks in the US. We'll be checking your webside during this time, to see how you're doing. All our prayers and thoughts go to you. Hang on in there.
Lots of love to all the 3 of you.

Wonderful News.............
I am so relieved but not surprised to see how you your life has been prolonged once more. Surely there is something amazing God sees in you. And that is him that is in you. His light shines in the words you speak. In your testimony he is given glory to the highest degree. Your faith has healed you and he wants you to know that. He is making you a light on a hill. Everyone sees your faithfulness and stands in wonder. How could you suffer and love so much? The answer... you know! So many are given strength to fight cancer and lifes problems because of you. So many will not roll over and die as satan wants, because of you. I hope to see you when you come back to California. I know you will. I pray for you every moment I can. And I see it works. Bravo to you for your strength. You have an amazing family there to help you. Sweet dreams and peace to you and your family. Tell Aurora Skyler and Savannah miss her and cannot wait until she can come to our home to spend the night.

Much Love

Dear Debbie...Summer Hibard sent out an urgency message to pray and when I realized what was going on, we all prayed for God to help you get through this. It is good to know the specifics so we can pray over each of them in Jesus' name. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that this moment is the path for complete recovery. And thank God for all the love and support found here. It's so uplifting to see how many people are praying and helping. Lots of love from me and all of us from the london program. we love you.

Praise is due His name
He is able to immeasurably more than we can ask or imagine. He is the God that can bring life into places, circumstances and bodies where there seems to be no life. He provided Abe & Sarah a child despite their years, he provided manna in the desert for the Israelites, water from a rock , rose Lazarus from the dead, and of course achieved victory over the powers of evil death and sickness (making a public mockery of them!) on the cross and through his Beloved Son's resurrection. It's that same power and life that is all over you Debbie for He is the same yesterday, today and forever. We rejoice with you and claim a sealing of His complete healing over and in your body.

Hi, Debbie. Thank God that you are past all that misery and feeling better! I am praying your body will respond to this dose of chemo, which you are getting even as I write, will bless your body, that God will use it to fight the cancer cells, and that you will see many, many good days ahead. I keep you in my prayers constantly. Love you. And Aurora and Dewey, too!

As soon as I turn on my computer every day I go to your website to see how you are doing. Your faith is so uplifting and inspiring. When I read your updates it is so hard to believe that after all you have been through you can still be so upbeat. Praise God for your healing and that you are not in pain. You are in our prayers daily. May God continue to bless you and your family.

Hi Deb,

what a nightmare-week for you. I'm so sorry that you had to go through all of this. I'm keeping you in my prayers, I wish you peace and some sunshine in your heart. May this be an exception in this whole treatment process.
You must be so proud of Aurora, little lady, who looks so cute on the pics. She surely will be a strong woman like you are, always smiling.
Our prayers go to you, especially on Wednesday. I hope you'll be doing fine afterwards, without any nasty side-effects.
Lots of love to you. You're in my heart

I have spent half this week-end with Debbie and her family. Debbie looks - and actually feels - much better. Last week she was supposed to have her second cycle of chemo. But she did not get it because her port was blocked. After several visits to 2 hospitals in Tours, one of the doctors who had put the port in 2 years ago was able to unblock it. Therefore she is finally going to get chimo this coming wednesday. Today, her friend Peggy arrived from the States to help her and Dewey for 2 weeks. Tomorrow her parents are leaving. They will drive to Paris and will have their plane for Orlando on Tuesday very early in the morning.
Your prayers are needed for the chemo to do its work and to be not as agressive for her body as it has been 5 weeks ago.
God bless you all.

Debbie, you are the most incredible person I know. Your love and determination and complete and utter faith in God and all that he does leave me in awe. I was so amazed to read your latest update and the message that you have not given up is so very, very wonderful. I will pray intensely for your next round of chemo to be both beneficial and bearable. I will pray for strength for your parents who love you so much, and for Dewey and Aurora who have travelled so far with you on this hard journey. In moments when darkness and fear overtake you, remember Him and all who love you and care for you so very much. God bless you all - Praise Jesus!

Dear Debbie,
You don't hear from me often, but I think of you and your family so often. Each time I do, a prayer goes to the Father. I pray that it will be the will of the Father to heal you completely. I pray that you will be given strength for the your journey. I pray that you will be given perfect peace in all that you face. I pray for your Mom and Dad. I know that their hearts ache for you each day. I pray that they, along with Dewey and Aurora, will also be given strength and peace.

Debbie, I think of you as I see the Tour wind through the beautiful French countryside. Think of Lance, who knows of the pain you describe and know their is a path out. He rides so hard and fast with the "good" kind of pain, that most of us, could still not endure, noting that it is nothing compared to what he went through with his cancer treatment. My heart and thoughts are with you and your beautiful family!

Thank you so much for your long update. It's good to have you back on the web and to know better how you're exactly doing and what you're feeling. I can see that you are a fighter! Please know that you're not alone in this battle. We all stand beside you and want and try to lift you up.
I'm glad that your parents can be with you right now to take good care of you, Dewey and Aurora. We're praying for all the 5 of you.
Consider yourself hugged and kissed and think of one of Daniels silly jokes: I'm sure that makes you smile.

We do pray for your peace of mind as you decide on treatments--to know you are choosing the right ones. We pray that you will gain healing, both physically and emotionally in all aspects of your treatment. We love you and long for the day when we hear that you are healed.

Much love,

From the Inside Out

The true way of knowing is from the inside out. This morning I woke up with quite a bit of neck pain and thought that I had nothing positive to write about. I sat down at the computer several times, but the pain kept me from being able to think. After four o’clock, I began to feel a little better.

I visited Debbie Franklin’s website. She has been battling inflammatory breast cancer for quite a few years and has just come through some rough chemo. She posted an update on her site, thanking everyone for their prayers and encouragement. Yesterday there were lovely pictures of her in her home in France.

The spirit prevails and it knows everything from the inside out. To see someone ill is quite different from being there in spirit with them. You see their inner beauty blazing trails of light. They may feel only the intensity of the heat...of the refiner’s fire. But we see far more. We see how God is using them to anchor us more deeply in our faith.

For Debbie, Aurora and Dewy. A simple thank you and an offered prayer. “Let me see others from the inside out. Amen.”

Hello family.

So I hear you swallowed a rattle. Silly bird. Spit that thing out.
I miss you and think of you daily. I wish I could be out there to help you but... You know... I am there with you.. suffering with you... rejoycing with you ... losing my hair with you - no, really:)... even though im here. You are overwhelimingly loved by all. Tell your little beauty Skyler, Savannah and I miss her. They cannot wait until she comes out again. Somehow God can make your hair loss have a positive impact on her. It depends largely on your perspective and attitude towards it. Your sculpting her young spirit and teaching her important thing like your body is seperate from your spirit. Fear not man or satan who can destroy the body, but fear God who can destroy both body and soul in hell. I know if you could change these circumstances but go against Gods will you wouldn't. You will remain steadfast. You body may become weaker as the days go longer but your spirit and love grows stronger every day. Peace be with you all:)
Love Christ above all.

Dear Debbie,

As you rest in Truth, you are peace itself. That is all you have to do. Being God's child, you are comforted and healed by your own true being. This comforts all who know and love you, too.

God is within you bringing peace and without you bringing comfort to all who love you. Right now so many people are loving you that nothing can stop you from healing.

Love, Vicki

I hope that one of your loved ones will read you this message from Marina del Rey. Then you can shift your thoughts for one moment to the smell of the salt in the air, the shussh of the waves on the sand, and the sound of the birds in their sanctuary here at the beach. Please know that this little corner of your mind is always waiting for you as a respite when you need one.

Dearest Debbie,

it's good to know that you're back home again. We all pray for a huge relief of pain and that you find some moments of rest.
Some good memory came back on saturday when I saw Bono on TV at the live8 concert in London. I still picture you in the backseat of our car, when we drove you to the U2-concert in Bercy. You were so excited!!
I'm praying that your body will be strengthened again, that your doctors make the right decisions and the you will have some quality time with your sweet Aurora, Dewey and your parents. Thinking of you,

The kids and I leave tomorrow to begin the drive from WA to southern CA, where we'll join Gene. He's been down for a week -- is teaching summer school down there in his old district. We'll be enjoying long visits with friends and our church family in Camarillo in July, and return home around the first of August.

We take you with us in our hearts and in our prayers on the road. We're thanking God for his "yes"s for you!

My mom's flown up from TX to drive down with me and the kids, because she figured I could use the help. What a blessing it is to have parents able and willing to travel far and serve graciously ourselves and our children. I too will pray for God to continue to sustain your parents with energy and peace.

Dewey, you are particularly on my mind tonight. I love you. You have my wordless prayers. While you have always been somewhat mysterious to me, I trust in God's perfect knowledge of you. Be encouraged.

Goodnight from Port Orchard, WA (good morning to you :)

Hey Debbie,
Welcome back to lovely Le Meur, and your home in Dewey and Aurora. I'm glad you can be surrounded by all who you care so much for and all that's familiar and meaningful to rest and heal. I (we) think about you and pray for you so much. We rejoice in each victory and sigh at each hurdle ... but up you get up again and beat it all. You keep being amazing. God is getting His glory in you. He is.
Last week I went to Pula to haul a load of camp stuff to Zagreb for sorting out. Debbie, that camp ground is more beautiful than ever. The pine trees are taller, prouder and so green. That salty, pine scent is very there and the Adriatic is bluer than the sky. In mid June the water was perfect and clear and happy. Didn't bring a swim suit so my friends had to endure me in my underwear. I walked to the spot where we all stood for that picture (A friend lent me a towel) that Dewey eventually painted and, well, edited. Now, neat little camp trailers with wooden decks and awnings line the hill side. They have showers and TV and kitchens. There are two new and immaculate bath and washing facilities. A long strectch from the ones we used that the Roman's built. All the cost of all that "improvement" gets passed on to the campers so ... good by to more than 30 years in Pula.
Now the camp in on the island of Krk. I'll let you know how that goes. I'm leaving Sunday to drive there with the family. I can look for a sea cucumber for you if you like.
God bless you Debbie and hugs to Dewey and Aurora and kisses to Mom and Dad Bridges who are kicking some great update butte.
Be sure to eat all your vegetables. My heart -

Roger M.

Thank you so much for the daily updates. I cannot even begin to imagine what a stressful time this has been for the entire family. Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. I'm so glad Debbie is home. I pray that she will regain her strenghth and be able to get the pain and tumors under control. God has used Debbie to show us what true hope and faith are all about.

". . . for the rich, the poor, the person with cancer, the person without, the educated, the uneducated - it is in the domain of anyone of any culture to choose this moment to say, "Thank You, thank You, God, for our lives. Thank You for music. Thank you, mother and father, for being alive. Thank you my friend."

Just thought I would copy this to the top again, it is a simple but beautiful quote.
Debbie, I am praying for you. You will feel much better spiritually now that you are at home. I hope you find plenty of rest and peace.

- Friday, July 01, 2005 at 06:36:05 (EDT)
Rest Debbie: Rest in peace as God our savior has given you everything you need to get by. God strength is perfected in your weakness, How? I do not know. It is beyond me. My mind is too feeble. It is between you and him but somehow I am sure he is giving you that hidden knowledge. With him all things are possible.
He made man in his image... but you... he is sculpting a masterpiece out of you. His finest work yet. Only the best will satisfy him, only you will do. He paints with the sweet paint of faith. You give God inspiration to make heavenly music. He sees you and he admires your courage. He sees you and knows this is all worth it. He sees you and knows he did not make a mistake when he pointed you out. "She is my loyal and faithful servant, do what you will, you will not break her faith." It is because of you that God did not completely destroy the world in that flood. He gave man a second chance because he knew about you. He knows all things, and all things will be given to you. Freedom is coming for you. It will pick you up in a chariot and angels will direct it to heaven. You will be set free... In due time! But the world needs your light. The world needs your smile. Keep them shining as long as possible.
You are the light on the hill that Christ spoke of!!!!!!!!!!!)- PS thats a wink

Much Love,

Your Brother

Sweet,sweet Debbie,Dewey,& Aurora,
After reading your webpage I now know why the Lord put you on my heart lately. You may not remember me, we met in the Scottsdale clinic summer of 2002. I was with my dad who was undergoing treatments there. I am praying for you. I am praying for the Lord's healing touch upon your body and for His comfort and the peace of God to surround you. May you feel His overwhelming presence and the joy of the Lord.
May all the blessings of the Lord be upon you and your family.
I love you, Cheryl Storrs in San Diego,CA

Dear Debbie, Dewie and Aurora,

I have been drawn to your message board at least once a day to hear how things are going with the three of you. It occurs to me that every single one of us unite in prayer when we come here. Isn't that wonderful? There must be some sort of a wonderful chain reaction blessing that we all receive when we log on. Many of us have been with you for years now.

As I write, a baby downy woodpecker is hopping along my deck railing as if to join us. To study nature is such a needed healing.

You three take good care of each other as we all bear witness to the mystery of communal prayer.

Love, Vicki Woodyard

Dear Debbie, Dewey and Aurora,

I wish I could write all the special thoughts I think about you and how special I feel that God has allowed me to get to know you Debbie so many years ago in Lubbock TX. Although are paths have rarely crossed since then I can only think of how much love and kindness you shared with me on our few reunions, even when our opinions differed. I cant wait till my next visit, if yall will have me (us?). Please realize you all have an open invite to visit us while in the UK or when we go back to FL (which may be in August 2005 if we're unable to get the new Visa or August 2006 if we do) :)

Debbie, you and your whole family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Gentle hugs and many kisses!
Love, Laura

OH! P.S. Tori wanted me to write to Aurora earlier. She remembers everything about our visit to Les Meur. She goes on and on about Aurora and wants her hair like Aurora..., she want this and that...like Aurora... , etc.etc. It makes me smile. She loves all of you! Thanks from the heart for making our time with you guys so special!

Hello Debbie,

All eyes are on you, even the smallest ones (Aurora). Remember that you are teaching all of of how to praise God in the face of such adversity. Aurora will be so strong from watching you. You are teaching her not to blame God, but to praise and draw close to him when you are going through trials. You are a warrior and you have a mighty sword and Shield. God is your shield, the word is your sword. The word of God is stronger than a double edge sword, peircing and dividing the soul and spirit and the bone and marrow. Stay in the word and the "Living Book" will guide you and give you strength. His word shall stand forever. His word is his power.
Do you realize that you have thousands of people who pray for you? You inspire and amaze everyone. You will make it through this and not blame God. You will sit on high with Christ and see everything. You will bring many with you.

Remember to breathe the breath of life that comes from his mouth to your lips.

God has blessed you and will continue to.

Your Brother

Debbie, every day, over and over again, we pray for you and Dewey and Aurora, and your family. I am asking for everything for you that I think I would want, if I were waiting, hurting, hoping as I imagine (feebly, I'm sure) you are. Among other things,...that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, is guarding your heart and mind in Christ Jesus... Do you remember when I asked you if you were scared when you came to see us in Camarillo the first time after your diagnosis? You answered that you had been amazed to find that you had no fear. How was that possible? It's a mystery I'm longing to understand. But it's what I pray for you now. It's unimaginable for me, but I know it's not about what I can imagine or understand. ...transcends understanding!... And so I pray! And have invoked many friends to join me in that prayer for you.

I love you. I feel you all the time in my heart. May God guide your steps, may he hold you so near that you can FEEL him, may he give you EVERYTHING you need to be obedient to him. Be healed by his loving hands!
Love, Laura

Hi Debs, I am praying that you are home back in your bed, if not, then very soon, and that all the right support is in place. I am praying that the infection is fought off from your port and that you can continue to take your meds. I am praying that the pain goes quickly and that your legs continue to improve. We are with you all. I know the strain your family are under and we continue to lift them up in prayer. God Bless you Debs. You are fighting hard and I know you are tired. Remember to let go and let God do his work. You need to sleep, to heal and grow stronger.

The only thing that comes up to my mind, Debbie is that I love you for all that you are.
I see your pain, I see you cry, I see you suffer, I see your poor body, I see your faith. I see Love in you, through you.

This is a special request for prayers for Debbie. She was admitted to the hospital in Tours with infection in both lungs. Her white blood count is 400 (should be around 10,000). She is in isolation. Specific prayer requests are that her body will be able to fight this infection and especially that Debbie (and Dewey, Aurora, Mom, and Dad) can get some much needed, healing sleep. Thank you all for your love and faithful prayers.

Hello Debbie...

Keep the faith. It sounds like the devil is gunning for you. But... Greater is he who is in you than he who is in the world. He is able to keep you. He will do all that he says. His strength is his word and his word stands forever.

- Wednesday, June 22, 2005 at 02:12:47 (EDT)
I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.

Psalm 40

Debbie,Dewey and Aurora and all your family and friends that I know are at your side....I hope you are well and full of the Lords abounding Love and strength.When I read your letter and saw that you mentioned me I cried..You mean so much to me and the hope that this awful cancer will soon be a thing of the past,Yesterday would have been my husband Johns 38th birthday but 6 year ago God called him home.You see he had cancer and you are a survivor,I look to you for strength because I want you to beat this terrible disease..The world does not need to loose a great warrior like you too..You are my hero and you WILL beat this..John came to me in a dream and I spoke with him as I often do in my dreams and he said to tell you God is your Savior and Lord and on him you should lean ,he said he wants to meet you but that it won"t be for some years and years.He knows how tired you are and he said to tell you to drink more fresh juices and to stay away from dairy..This message probably does not make much sense but after the dream I had to tell you what he said ..He had faith like you soooo stong...Love Brenda and the message from John Anthony Mason a special Angel in heaven....

Dearest Debbie,

your first chemo-day lays behind you and I hope that the "red devil" does so many good things to your weak body. I know it's so hard on you to undergo this chemo again and hope that the side effects will not be as drastic. We're thinking of you so much and in our thoughts we're very close to you. Know that lots of people of the Heidelberg congregation are praying for you - you're not alone! I'd love to send you some strength and courage and hope that throughout our prayers you might feel that we're with you. May God keep you and protect you.
Lots of love for you, Dewey and Aurora.

Hi Debbie: I would like to mention a few more supplements you may want to take to help your immune system
and help with the chemo they are Cordyceps Sinensis,Reishi mushroom and alpha lipoic acid. I pray that you get well because you are special and I will never forget your kindness

Sunny CA Greetings to Debbie, Dewey and Aurora,
My heart goes out to you to learn of the new mets.
Still, I'm going to focus on this chemo as an opportunity. Yes, a really painful one. So much struggle for all three.
But I am going to imagine it racing though your veins.
Every tiny space of Debbie open to it to do its work, to help you the way it has helped thousands before you.
Meanwhile, the three of you will continue doing your own work (as you do so well), which is, as Jack Kerouac said: "Be in love with yr life." You already know you call on me if I can help any of you in any way. love, Nina

Dear Debbie Dewey and Aurora,
A prayer of thanks to God for your fantastic courage and openness to God's healing Presence. And God's Love for all of you is surely great and you are never alone. We hope to see you in summer in the park at Richlieu (where Dewey's abject attempts at boules may be revisited).
May His face shine upon you. Love to you all.

Dearest Debbling,

We continue to pray for you each day and hope that every day has some good things in it for you.
Marcie is doing a lot of planting and I am marveling in her garden. We went out to a local farm and enjoyed time with some friends this evening. I got to play huge ball soccer with some great kids.
I know you are looking forward to feeling better. I hope that your recovery is swift and have a wonderful summer. I hope that I can speak with you soon.

Love Always,

John Castleberry

Ken and I are thinking of you and want to send our love. We are very glad your parents can be with you now. My prayer for you the during this time is that God will look at every cell in your body, that he will sort them, marking the ones that need to be destroyed then directing the chemo to do its job. When I was sick, I prayed for chemo-angels to come into my body (angels can take whatever form God wants them to), swim in my blood stream, to search out and destroy every evil cell. I'll pray the same for you. Our God, who counts every hair on our heads, can do this for you! You are a woman of God given courage and I am glad to know you still have your fighting spirit. We both love you! Joyce

Dearest Debbie, Dewey & Aurora, you cannot imagine the amount of love and support that is out there for you and the fervent prayers being said. Debbie, you've come this far - keep fighting; the chemo is just another avenue, albeit a frightening and painful one, but with God's help it will be a blessing for you. We all love you and so wish the best for you all. You are constantly in our thoughts, hearts and prayers. Feel our love and hugs across the miles and try to keep smiling. A thousand million blessings to you all. xxxxxxxx

Dear Debbie,
each time i called the line was busy, so I decided to write to you. I know that this decision you made to do chemo was a very hard one but I know that at this point you have made the right decision. The church in Poitiers has been praying for you, Dewey and Aurora. We are covering you with mighty prayers. Today, at 3h30 pm we'll be many in poitiers to pray for you and this difficult hours at the hospital.
you know that Bill and I are leaving next wednesday. We hope to come and visit you on Sunday.
Jesus will be holding your hand as you do the chemo and the Holy Spirit will be comforting your soul and our prayers will be rising to the throne of our loving God where is allmighty glory is.
We love you;

Hello Debbie, Dewey and Aurora, Our prayers are with you as you face this chemo again. Seems like just yesterday that you were here with us, sitting right across the table from me making your calls for all your important needs. We love you and are thankful that you are being cared for. Dewey is one of my heros and his love for you is evident. Love you all very much and so happy that your parents are coming to be a help to you all. Sorry I hadn't sent a message just yesterday. Was holding the memories of our last visit here and Roland told me of your adventures and how he got Aurora laughing when you all were so tired. We are all so many loving you all and lifting you up in prayers.
Rose and Roland

Hi Debs, remember, we will be with you in spirit while you are taking the chemo. Imagine your room filled with many friends, all praying for the "Red Devil" to do its work. That's how it's going to be. The Lord is present were two or three are gathered in His name. He is there with you too. I got a post put on Christian forum for you too. That's a lot of people lifting up your name to the Lord.It will be ok.
My Love to all your family and I pray they will be held in the Fathers arms throughout all this. Dewey and Aurora, my love to you and I will pray a special prayer for you to feel all the Love that's being sent to you.
God Bless you.

Deb, I want to tell you about my friend Rich, night janitor at my school. He was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. He's a strong, light-filled Christian. He loves lost souls because he was once one. He told me he knew God would use his situation and I told him about you, the website and the many blessings God has showered on us all through this trial. He told me this story. He works some nights at another school with a rough guy who has acted and seemed far from the Light. Rich, who loves to share Christ, is on a journey with this guy, watching him change. When Rich found out he had cancer he told his friend "You hafta pray for me." and left it at that. Days later his friend told him "I tried to pray for you but I didn't know what to say, so I asked God to extend your life 10 years." Rich finished the story with a smile on his face and tears in his eyes. "That's what God can do with this." he said.

Dear Debbie, Dewey and Aurora,

I have been praying and asking for others to left you up here in England and in Florida. My prayers are like that of Hannah, with deep anguish and desire to see you receive the miracle God has for you Debbie.

Debbie you are a very special friend. I would love to come and see you again and help Dewey/your family with anything that would help you or your family while youre hospitalized but I'm not able to travel right now... BUT I can pray and I have been lead to start a week fast for you and then a one day weekly fast after that until you are back home. THEN I hope to come see you again if you are willing to accept my help. NO little Tori this time, unless Aurora would like to see her again. THey had such a great time didnt they? Tori talks about her friend Aurora 2 or 3 times a week. :)

I would like for anyone who would like to fast for Debbie, to join along with me in a fast for Debbie. Remember, your fast doesnt have to be a total food fast. It could be just giving up something for a week or a day or a mealtime or even turning off the TV for an hour and remembering and praying earnestly for Debbie's healing. I have seen this move the hand of God on more than one occasion. Our God is no respector or persons. What He has done for one He can and will do for others. Let us all keep asking (praying) and believing, with all faith and perserverance, that we have received that for which we have asked.

Debbie, Dewey and Aurora - I pray you are lifted up by the many prayers that your family, friends and even strangers are praying on your behalf. May the grace & peace of God keep you and be your strength & rest.
I Love You ALL! Laura <

Debbie: I was the first person who drew you blood at the Emory University Hospital the day you came in with your great entourage of family members the day you recieved chemo the first time,Little Aurora was there and we tried to make you smile and laugh because you were so nervous about the red devil going into you veins and myself and another Brenda told you that this devil was the good kind of devil and you laughed.Well now its time again for you to face that devil again and I want you to continue to laugh in the devils face and say I want to live and nothing you say or do to me can take me down..Debbie you have been a real fighter and the Lord and all of us together praying for the healing you began to ask for all those years ago is still the same if not stronger,all those years ago..Please never give up keep your eyes to the sky and know with him ALL things are possible..I know you are tired and weary but you have so many of us all around the world to pull your strength from,the power of the world..The power of the Lord all mighty..I love you Debbie....Love Brenda Mason...Douglasville Georgia

Hi Deb,
I just wanted you to know that i have a friend here whose name is Charlotte Summer, and she has been my prayer warrior, with me, through your whole sickness. We are constantly lifting you up in prayer. last night we walked in the Relay for Life, raising money for cancer research. charlotte made a luminary for you (it's beautiful) and we walked and talked and we will be continually praying for you. Keep the good fight. I love you so much Kim

Blessings to you and your family, Debbie!

Laura Aramanda has asked her friends at the Father's House in Tampa to keep you in prayer. It is our privilege to do so! We have seen God do unbelievable things through prayer! We are asking Him for a miracle for you. We are praying for your family, too. When one person goes through a terrible challenge such as IBC, the whole family is affected. May the peace and presence of God rule in your hearts and lives. May you come to know the sweetness of relationship with Jesus Christ in all its fulness! And may we celebrate together when this IBC is defeated!

Stay focused. We're all pulling - and praying - for you!

Courage has a new face and it's yours. Keep your head up because you and Debbie are inseperable and one. We cannot begin to imagine your pain. You are not helpless because your love is what comforts Debbie. As long as you are by her side she has her other half to know everything will be OK NO MATTER WHAT. We all draw strenght from you. You show us how to love our partners. You will partake in the rewards God has already prepared for the both of you.

Do not go gently into that good night. Fight, fight, against the coming of the night. Light is the only thing darkness fears. How great is that light that resides within. Oh to be free: that is what we seek. What God sets free is free indeed. Forevermore. We shall all be with you through thick and thin. In life and in death. We shall all meet and be free at the perfect time.

Cancer is so weak. Cancer cannot invade your soul, break your faith or your family. It cannot stop you. Cancer has taught you many wonderful things. It made you appreciate what others take for granted. Your cancer has saved others souls. Cancer has brought you so close to God that his glory is revealed in you. God has brought you many friends who pray for you daily. Cancer may be the thing that lets you go home. When he's ready.

May He grant you your heart's desire, and fulfill all your counsel. We will sing for joy over your victory, and in the name of our God we will set up banners. May the Lord fulfill all your requests. Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed, He will answer him from His holy heaven, with the saving strength of His right hand. Ps. 20:4-6
We know there will be much joy in your victory over this cancer.

Hey there Franklin family! Love and kisses to you all. Debbie, my prayers are with you. I know you hate being in the hospital, but let the docs take care of you. Don't forget to difuse your oils (especially in the hospital). I called and left Ryan (God's "hands") a message telling him to pray for you too. Remember that picture of the three of us (Aurora, you, and me) sitting on my bed? I put it in a picture frame and is next to my bed now with others. Sure enjoyed your stay with me.

So sorry to read of your recent hospitalization, but am thankful there are no blood clots in your lungs!! Hope you get good results from th CT scan on Thursday. Your faith and perserverence are inspiring!!

Debbie, I have been meaning to write for the longest time. I always read your family updates with hope and prayers for what tomorrow will bring. Each time I talk to one of your London students, they ask how all of you are doing. A bit of news here: Mark and I moved to the Washington, D.C. area a few months ago and I now work at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda. The work here makes me think of you so often as I interview and write about some of the patients who call this place home. They have such hope and it inspires me to see how people can face such trials and maintain their original spirits, smiles, and faiths. You continue to do the same! With love to all of you, Katie.

Do know that your are often in my thoughts and prayers and we will be praying for your recovery from this most recent episode and for your full recovery and back to normal again so that you can get back to doing the things that matter most to you.

Love Ron and Sheryl Hall

Hi Debbie -- it is kind of a strange thing how "small" things keep reminding us of people who are important in our lives. I have a liquid-soap opntainer near my washbasin that I use almost every day --- it is the same kind that you brought me when you and your family visited me here in the hospital.
I am sure Mina, who is better at writing than I am, has kept up with you as well. In many ways miracles have already happened in your life, but to me the biggest miracle is the patience and faith with which you have met what can only be described as "GREAT ADVERSITY."
We tend to think of our bodies as strong, healthy, everlasting, especially when we are young. And then something comes along, if only old age, and we realize the illusions with which we may have lived most of our lives.
One thing is certain, you are trying everything that anyone could expect you to try to help your body in this battle -- and it is always significant to me that others can only learn from what you have learned, as well as from your struggles undergirded by faith.
It is with great fondness that Mina and I, after all these years, remember the special times we spent together in London.
Here -- in Flagstaff -- spring is staging its annual battles to try and move us into summer (an altogether too short season)-- things are blooming, and thanks to unusually heavy rains and lots of snow, everything is very green, and for the first time since we moved here, six years ago, the streams and lakes are FULL.
BUT outside fierce winds are howling so that even our "outdoor" Pepper-dog, our collie, stays inside. Of coourse, her good buddy, our keeshond Spirit hardly ever contemplates being away from a hand that might just scratch her tummy. We have had up to 75mph winds -- and that gets a bit rough -- all the time there is brilliant sunshine.
We are continuing to pray for you and your family -- both in Sunday services and in our Thursday (in our home) Bible study, as well as in our own "family" prayers.
It is wonderful to know that so many people are with you in your struggles -- I was not able to realize that that was true in my case as well while I was in a coma -- but once I came out of it, I became more and more aware of how many of God's people Mina had managed to enlist to fight with me.
I wish you God's richest blessings -- and among them, not the least, the "peace that passes all understanding."

Dear Sister in Christ

Please know that you are in our prayers. We had hoped to see you while you were in Southern California. The elders of the University Church have been praying as well. Since we have four children and six grandchildren, we think of your parents often in our petitions.

May God be with you as you continue this brave fight against this awful disease.

Dearest Deb,
God bless you right now as you plow through all this pain and discomfort. I'm still begging and bugging God for your healing. He's got a pretty stellar track record and I keep pointin that out to Him, as if He needed me to. I keep throwing my Jesus card on the table too cause I know that that's the way to His heart. I'm praying that you'll keep finding Him in the center, that place where you go when you get to the end of yourself. He is always there as I'm sure you keep finding out. He always beats us to that place and is waiting for us there.
I'm sending you something really familiar but yet not. It's the Psalm you cut your teeth on but it's been interpreted by a fellow in a similar battle to yours. It's most effective when rapped in rhythm. I hope you two connect. Here's my heart and my prayers.
Your bud, Roger
You Comfort Me
@David (Psalm 23)
You're my guide and my guard, my minder,
my mentor.
What more do I need? What's better at the center?
You sit me down, put my best CD on,
And my soul remembers who I am again.

You're with me, you comfort me. (x2)
And you hold my swaying heart - so soft, so strong.
You're with me and you comfort me. (x2)
You stop them tearing me apart - I fear no wrong.
You show me where to go, without telling me.
You set a value on my life, without selling me.
You're with me, you comfort me. (x2)

You call me to the streets, you show me such good things,
Right things with no hidden strings -
Just your name on, and it's game on.
Your great repute, like a distant flute it comforts me.

I crawl through the valley of the shadow of cancer;
I know you know the answer, and the battle won't rattle me.
You're around, and I've found there's something about your empathy.
Your symphony of sympathy, that comforts me.

You lay out a table, you sit me down;
My rivals arrive from the greatest to the least,
But my cup's kept full, and my head's held high
As you boast about me, your least priest,
And you make them toast me right through the feast.
Boy, does it comfort me!

I know that your good, your best, your love and your passion
Will stalk me, steer me, stand alongside me,
Outlast every fad and fashion, through all eternity.
For I'm going to live with you,
See heaven's great views from my own cosmic mews;
No lease to renew, no terms to review, no one else to view -
Just me and you, me and you, me and you,
Right through to the end of time.

- Tuesday, June 07, 2005 at 02:21:47 (EDT)

Hey babe. We're praying our hearts' desire for you. Total healing. In the mean time, eat lots of fresh fruit...it might be a little early for those especially good pears from Hungary, hmmm. Do you have pears at les Meur? They grow really well here, in Port Orchard. I think we have one growing in our back yard but I won't know till next year probably - it's a long story. I'm growing my own potatoes this year, using a traditional Irish method called a "lazy-bed" (perfect for me). I am at war with the slugs though and am getting some satisfaction with my slug slaying beer traps. Wish we were there to hold your hand and swap stories.

Dear Precious Debbie,
I rejoice that no blood clots were found, but am sorry for the discomfort you are having with the pleuracy problem. I have had pleuracy, along with a lot of fluid buildup around my heart about 16 years ago, and I know it is no fun. But my prayers continue to be with you, and I pray for your courage and hope to continue. You are a blessing to my life, for it is under fire that our faith is shown to others -- and my precious young friend, your faith radiates to people on more than one continent. I love you and pray for you, Joyce Massey

First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEBBIE! It is wonderful to hear that you
celebrated your birthday with dear friends and that your garden is
blossoming!!! We are thinking of all of you and are so glad to hear you are
back in France. It makes you all feel closer, somehow.

We enjoy looking at the pictures you have posted. All of you look
wonderful, and we are amazed at how much beautiful Aurora has grown! She is
just amazing!

Much like you, we will be awaiting the final results from the latest
tests. In the meantime, we will pray and think of you, knowing in our
hearts that Debbie's beautiful attitude will always prevail. We rejoice
with you for all the good news.

We love you,

Hi Debbie,
It's Faye from Arizona. I am so happy to see you are doing better and to see how much Aurora has grown. She loks like a little Angel! I work in Chicago now at Northwestern Memorial Hospital so if you need any new info. let me know!

- Sunday, May 15, 2005 at 16:59:58 (EDT)
Debbie, I will join you in your prayers. I have been so mindful of you for the past few weeks, and have no good explanation for why I haven't communicated that to you, but I have been so glad to hear your updates, and see the photos. I am so sorry that you've been experiencing so much pain. I have been praying, and will continue to do so even more fervently.

I heard a tape recently of an interview with a physicist/Anglican priest who was describing how different God's new creation might be in terms of the laws of physics. It was fasinating to me to imagine not just a figurative reality, but a true physical world "with no more death or mourning or crying or pain," no longer subject to the transience and entropy that are the reality we know only too well. He spoke of how Jesus' resurrected body was not just the same matter having been resuscitated, but the first of the new creation -- a qualitatively different sort of matter altogether. Somehow this took God out of a box for me, when I began to think of God's having that total control over what sort of matter he would create, and what "laws" it might be subject to. It reminded me how God, then, is so totally capable of exerting control over every circumstance of our physical reality. There is so much mystery to what is going on in you on a molecular level. God is in that mystery as well. Why disease came with the fall... another mystery. Also a mystery: his immense love for you and every cell of your body. But I believe it with all my heart, and beg him to heal you completely, and trust him with your entire being. I love you... and I want your pain to be relieved, your energy to be restored.

I am so excited to hear about the miracles you're experiencing, as the loving hands of Jesus minister to you through the loving hands of family and friends. You continue to inspire me to see such miracles around me, which brings me great joy and hope. God is using you profoundly.

Thank you for your courage, and your friendship to all of us!

Hi Debbie, Dewey and Aurora

It is so good to visit your web page and let you know that I continue to support you through love and prayers. I have just finished reading your report Debbie and I was astounded at the amount of time treatment takes. It is indeed a double-edged sword ... there are virtues to be learned through all this ... like you say ... Patience.

It was really good to see you all in Northampton recently. I am so honoured to know you and to be part of your lives.

Continuing in prayer and love ... your sister and friend in Christ

Hi Debbie and family,

I was just checking in on your website and was thrilled to hear that your disease for the most part is still stable. I taught with Peggy Keeton a few years ago in Big Spring, TX. My husband, Duane, was diagnosed with a high grade malignant brain tumor just a few weeks before your cancer diagnosis. Our daughter, Lilly was only 5 1/2 weeks old at the time. Duane will celebrate the 5th anniversary of his diagnosis on June 8th of this year. He has been in and out of the hospital several times since September, but is doing much better. We have four children, Luke (12), Parker (8), Lilly (4), and Tate (2 yrs.) Tate is a very special little boy. He has a complex heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He will undergo his third open heart surgery (10-12 hr. surgery) in Houston in April, and he also faces the possibility of a heart transplant someday. This was such a shock to us to have an ill child when we were just starting to somewhat recover emotionally from Duane's cancer diagnosis. Anyway, GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME!! I know that your family knows that too! I have continued to follow your family in your journey over the last few years. Please feel free to check in on us on Tate's website: www.caringbridge.org/tx/tate
I also update on my husband on the website as well.
Here's wishing you the best in 2005 all the way from Paris, TX.

Fully Relying on God,

Happy New Year from Whittier! We were glad to view your latest update and see your photos. Debbie, you and Aurora look fantastic! (We're sure Dewey looks great as well, but there were no pics of him!)

We've had lots of rain here as we're sure you've heard, but today is dry and somewhat sunny--it makes our dispositions a little sunnier as well.

You all remain in our thoughts and prayers. Love you much.

Hi, Debbie, it was so good to get a new message from you and to learn that your health seems relatively stable. You do know about Miltex for skin mets, don't you? Dr. Eley was able to get it for one of his patients here. I'm sorry to hear of the losses in your family and circle of friends. On the other hand, your Thanksgiving sounds wonderful! The WC group is doing o. k. We have several very young new members. I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas! Your remain in my prayers.

Hi Debbie and family. What a beautiful updated photo on the homepage. You look great. We have a family member that is just been diagnosed with Stage 4 metasticized breast cancer. I know you have done extensive research regarding your medical condition. I am hopeful that someone would be willing to contact me via email so that I can direct her on how to benefit from your research. Your parents send me updates periodically via email. I would be very grateful. You are remarkable to me and an inspiration.

God bless you!

Wow...how WONDERFUL to come back here and find this fantastic update. We have been praying and God has replied with some awesome "yes"es! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We're still hanging out in Washington State with joy (most days)! We move into our house over Thanksgiving weekend -- most appropriate. I'll be sending some pictures! Life is speeding by, as it usually does. And we feel it most as we see molars break through Forest's gums, and hear little mini-sentences emerge from his lips (e.g. "Lilia...Eloise...gone" just after we drop them off at their school -- that was yesterday, can you tell I'm a proud mom?) We pray for peace, and I think of you often Debbie, in that regard. We pray for more brave Debbies in the world. We pray for our own courage to combat hate with love.

xo. we love you, miss you, we'll be in touch!

Hi. I do not know you. I found your web site "by accident" as I was checking my own web site. Note my name is spelled with a "y" n. I had breast cancer in 1989 and was 45 at the time.

Reading your story gives me such happiness and sadness at the same time. You are a true inspiration. Don't ever give up! You have many people, family and friends on your side. Some of my friends and clients have found your side "accidentally" looking for me. I wonder, could you have a brief note somewhere on your site briefly linking to my website - for those looking for me---I would s-o-0 appreciate it!

Debbie, I will keep checking on your progress, and expect only the best! Your "new" friend, Debbie Franklyn.

Hi Debbie! You might remember me from the Pepperdine London house back in '96 . . . you and Dewey did so much to make all of us poor Yankee students feel at home in a faraway city. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that this weekend I'm doing a swim-a-thon for my local Women's Cancer Resource Center, and when I do, I'm thinking of and honoring you. I've never forgotten you and Dewey--such wonderful people--and I've been rejoicing along with you through every bit of good news. May there be much more to come!

As always, you and your family are in my prayers. I have suggested that one of our WC members check your website and even e-mail you. Dr. Eley is her doc, and her case sounds similar to yours. Keep us posted about how you're doing and know that I think of you often!

Hey Debbie:

Hey, it's so good to hear good news from you. I'am relieved that they haven't found anything else but nice grey cells of intelligence in your head. However, I'm praying that the pain will go away asap.
It's incredible to think that 4 weeks have already gone by since we last met. We had a good visit with you guys and I was relly impressed by Aurora's performance during service.
Thanks so much for your hospitality and good cooking. We enjoyed it!
Keep on fighting your fight! I imagine it's hard, but I think you're in good hands and have found some good alternatives that will show some positive results. I'm praying for that. The three of you are in my thoughts and always in my prayers. God bless you.
Love from a rainy Heidelberg (not at all romantic)

I took my mom to visit my brand new grandniece and my mom's first great-grandchild. We are always so happy to hear of the great things you are doing or the places you are visiting with Aurora. We remember our children's first camping experience--what fun! You and Dewey are doing a marvelous job raising and nurturing Aurora.

Hello dear sister!

Well, I am constantly amazed and excited by the power of prayer .... the prayers ARE constant ... upon return to work in September, colleagues were asking "how is Debbie" ... although they dont know you, they feel as though they do. We are starting a school prayer group again ... so we will all be praying for you!

The battle is won!

Gene and Lydia and Eloise and Forest and I will keep praying for you, and praising God for your good report. Keep enjoying the "days of wine and roses, and the rubbing of noses; barefeet, new sprouts, and garden hoses!"

Thank you for your prayers also. We found a house we love, and found out last night that our bid was accepted (from among competing bids). It's a long story, and one that I'll happily share later...

I am so happy and relieved to hear your latest report. I think it is hard for God to ignore so many prayers on your behalf :-) .... Our family has survived the hurricanes without too much damage. My parents had quite a number of trees down, but none hit the house. Terry's house was not so fortunate - 60 foot pine tree decided to drop in for a visit. It took out 2/3 bedrooms and a bathroom, but it could've been worse. I wonder about you & Dewey often, each moment followed with a conversation with God about the whole thing. I always look forward to reading your updates, and appreciate your perseverance posting them. [and to Fritz:-]

I visit your website regularly and I am utterly amazed at your persistent strength and resilience in this fight. For what it's worth I think the Vit C IV's are really beneficial and I have been sharing with two other people I know right now who also have cancer (stage 4)the success you have been having with your treatments.
You are an inspiration. Do not give up. You have had so many successes. Don't forget them. Your daughter is beautiful. I also have one daughter the same age as Aurora.
God Bless you in your struggle and may the Lord's sunshine fill your life every day as you live.

Hello Debs, Just read your last update. It may seem a little dark just now, but hundreds of candles light your way. I'm fairly sure that we are all now praying hard, for the Lord to reveal to you the next step forward. I'm sure He will, because He's held you this far. I thank the Lord for keeping you safe and strong. I thank Him for your wonderful support network of Family and friends. I praise Him for allowing us to be of use to you in our prayers.
Debbie,if candles were prayers, you'd need sunglasses!
God Bless you. Dewey stay strong, this is just a bump in the road.
With Love, Carol, Corby.

Hello Pet

I continue to bring you and Dewey and Aurora before our loving Father. I pray that all will be well, dear sister, knowing that you are going through some hard days at present. Words are not enough but they are powerful ways to express what we feel in our hearts .... and that of our love for you. I hope it will be possible, God willing, to come again and pray with you. Pete is working out our budget so I just ask God to provide from his abundance to make that happen.

Keep pressing on dear sister, you are already triumphant!

Love in Him

Our dear Father in heaven, we humbly thank you for working so powerfully through Dewey, Debbie & Aurora to show the breadth and depth and height of your love, your generosity in the gift of faith and the magnitude of your mercy, which is our hope.

We know not why your wondrous love, to us, you have made known, nor why (unworthy) Christ in love redeemed (us) for his own.

But we know whom we have believed, and are persuaded that you are able, to keep that which we've commited unto you against that day!


Gt Easton UK - Friday, August 13, 2004 at 13:26:46 (EDT)
Congratulations, Debbie!

That sounds like a fantastic reaction to the chemo. I wish you continued great success with it. You really do have 'quite a story.'

Aurora is so beautiful. May you, your husband, and Aurora live a long, healthy, happy life together.

I am David Walker's wife in Northampton. I look at your web site regularly and I'm not one to express myself very freely but I couldn't help but be deeply moved by your recent entry. You are obviously on a high and it was so good to read. Having been through a life threatening event myself I know the power of prayer and I can say with absolute certainty that it worked for me, for here I am 11 years afterwards! You really are living proof that prayer is such a powerful tool, if it can be called that. It was a real joy to read your update. God has given us a wonderful life and you are living it to the full. God must be so proud of you!

Debbie I got your response and I am thinking maybe my email to you wasnt too clear. OOP's! I was talking about the end of Aug 24-31. Are any of those dates good??? or is this too soon? Sept 24 could be possible but right now there are too many things we are unsure of, will we still be in Farnham or will we have moved to Lancaster plus others. We should be getting some clarity on this soon, hopefully in the coming two weeks at the latest. Please pray that is true and if we are able to stay in England that Passport issues will be handled without too much difficulty.

Thanks for all the travel details, they will definitely help me. I will start looking into the deals I can get and see if I can get one for a late Aug visit with you guys.

Victor said that waiting until we are at Ellel Grange (lancaster) might work best but if I can get a flight for .99p I think that might be best and I can see your home!

I will keep looking into the possible ways to travel to you.
please let me know about Aug if that would work and if 9-24 is free for me to come ... and how long would you like for me (and possiblity Tori???) to stay 1 or 2 nights?

May God continue to bless you and restore you to good health
I love you & cant wait to see you my friend,

Hi, I'm sorry it's been so long since I've sent a message! However, know that you remain in my heart and in my prayers even when you don't hear from me. I was so delighted by your recent update and by your new pics. You look even more BEAUTIFUL than ever and so well too!! I'm sorry we couldn't connect when you were in GA, but I know you were busy with family. I continue to do well on xeloda too. This has really been a miracle drug for us both. The WC group lost another member recently, Sheryl Siegel. I think she joined the group after you left. Too many of our sisters are gone! I think that's 9 from our group in 3 years. May God continue to bless you and your precious family. That Aurora is a doll, and Dewey is as handsome as ever. Take good care of yourselves and know that prayers come your way every day! Love, Page

I'm so pleased that you are all doing so well ... to God be the glory!

Today I am praying that the side effects of your chemo will be reduced.

Hiya Debbie

I just had to leave you a message! I have been thinking and praying for you and sending you loving thoughts! Pete and I just returned from Vienna where we had our 25th Anniversary (it was a lovely surprise) ... but I thought of you and Dewey ... the art there is really wonderful and you would both love Vienna ... have you been? It is very cultural. We went to a strauss concert and sat in the front row! It was brill!

I loved the photographs - one day, God willing, I would like to visit the beaches in Florida! like you, I love the water.

Well, dear sister, I want you to know the prayers continue, as does my love. I would like to see you again to pray with you and pray that God will provide that opportunity,

love, as always

Good evening all

it is a wet evening here but I always remember my husband Peter telling me that the sun is always shining three miles up! During these rainy days, remember that the sun (son) is shining and just because we cant see it doesnt mean its not there. God's love is a bit like that ... sometimes we dont always feel his presence and we wonder why good people suffer ... but God is faithful and he never leaves us. This is my thought for you all today - let the "Son" shine in! Praise Jesus

Thanks so much for the phone call the other night. It was great talking to you personally. I am so happy that you're doing a little better now and will pray for continuing healing.
It's wonderful outside, very sunny, and I think of the beautiful sunflowers Dewey painted. It must be a lovely season right now at Les Meurs with all these different bright colours of flowers and plants. I really hope that we can see each other this summer (as every summer) and am looking forward to that. Please take good care of you and give Dewey and Aurora a big hug.

Dewey, that you can resume painting very soon ... and Aurora, that you will bring much joy and happiness to your family.

It has been a busy time for us .... we held our second prayer event in the town of Corby to pray for people with dependency needs. It was a great evening and very uplifting to see so many people unite in prayer together. We had africian singers too!

Just a short message to say hello and give news: we think of you very often and admire your struggle against cancer.
Eric, you met... 8 years ago, will be leaving England fo where he will still be working for J.P. Morgan. It makes us a bit sad because it is very far away and very hard weather!
A month ago our other son Jean got married in Normandy: it was a beautiful gathering with all our family and close friends. Their young two year old boy, Julien, was of course of the feast! My 90 year old mother was also with us, as well as some American friends!
We do hope your American journey will be full of joy and fondness!

Today I spent a moment with Deb in the hospital where she had her chemo. She looks great, she feels good and she told me her markers are as low as they were 18 month ago !
I would like to thank you all for making their trip possible, for the party you made for her birthday, for the love you give them. Every minute of happiness she has contributes to her healing. From the bottom of my heart thank you.
Next week end or the following we will go together to the Ocean and it is going to be so good !
I keep you all in my thoughts and prayers, specially the one who suffer in their hearts and bodies.

First of all, thank you for your gentle hospitality while Cindy and I visited last month. Your home is certainly the oldest, most fascinating and unique I've ever been in and as I think of you, Dewey, and Aurora, I see you in your home of the ages, and see so much of what you love in your beautiful town of St. Gervais....
Most of all, I am so glad to have finally met you all, and I continue to lift you up in prayer. "See what love hath the Father bestowed on us... that we should be called children of God."

Dear Debbie, Dewey and Aurora,

Today,I woke up early to meet with my little brother in Christ Emmanuel and we drove to Les Meurs. We arrived there around 11h00. We walked to the door and found... that the key was gone ! We went to the workers - 4 young and healthy men working hard - and we asked them if they had seen someone. They had'nt. We drove to Howard's for I thought he might have your key and found... he was not there. We wanted to leave him a note and found... we had nothing to write ! I found a little piece of paper and that tube of red pigment we used weeks ago to do the walls in Aurora's bedroom. We were saved ! A thin piece of wood made a pencil and I was able to "draw" more than write a small note to Howard ! As we could not get into your house we decided to praise the Lord for that and to enjoy that day even though things were not at all like we had planned them ! And we had the most beautiful day ever ! A pic-nic in the middle of a field of apple trees, in the silence of the country, in the beauty of the nature, and we prayed, and we sang, and we praised the Lord all day long in joy and peace ! And you three were in my heart. Howard called tonight, he'll give me the key tomorrow.
And I am not going to tell you what has been done already there for I want you to have the surprise when you are back !
I love you all so much and I hope you are having a wonderfull time with the ones you love. And I keep praying for you three and your family.

Father, I ask that as Debbie continues with her chemo, her red and whiite blood cells will be robust and strong and as able to defend themselves as the cancer cells are vulnerable.
Hear our prayer.

Dear Debbie & Dewey,

It was wonderful to share in your birthday celebration, and to share the love that surrounds and flows through you and your family and friends. Your birthday was a most special gift to us! Thank you all. With much love, Janet & Bill

Hi everyone

I hope you are all enjoying this wonderful family time together and that your birthday Debbie is truly a wonderful one.

Today, Debbie, my prayer for you is that you will continue to progress in your treatment ... that you will have a safe journey home to France to continue the treatment ... and that God will continue to bless you with few side effects, at least so that you can spend time with your husband and daughter in a quality way. God bless you and we continue to lift you all up before our Heavenly Father.

Ma Debbie,
Je n'ai pas pu te faire un message hier, mais je t'ai gardÈ dans mon coeur et dans mes pensÈes tout au long de la journÈe d'hier. Tu sais ý quel point j'aurais voulu Ítre lý avec vous... et hier encore plus !
J'espËre que le voyage s'est bien passÈ. J'espËre que la fÍte a ÈtÈ belle ! J'espËre que vous Ítes HEUREUX !
Vous me manquez beaucoup beaucoup beaucoup ...
Encore 3 jours et je vais chez vous voir si tout se passe bien. Ce sera bizarre d'Ítre lý sans vous mais ce sera bien parce que je sais que vous serez de retour bientÙt.
Il fait toujours trËs beau bien qu'il fasse plus frais, presque froid mÍme. Et il y a du vent, et cette belle lumiËre fluide, transparente qui rend l'air quasi liquide. Si j'aime tant cette rÈgion c'est en grande partie gr’ce ý lumiËre-lý !
I love you family of my heart and I miss you three and I pray for you.

Father in heaven, we pray that Dewey & Debbie and Aurora really have a fantastic time in Florida!
Please give them health and strength and lots of prectical support from their friends and family so that they don't have to worry about 'stuff' but can concentrate on having fun.
After such a difficult time over the last couple of years make this a quality time for Dewey and Debbie and Aurora together ... having fun and making great memories together ... so much so that Aurora stops worrying about losing Debbie.

Hi Debbie

I have missed not putting my message on since Wednesday but I have been praying for you regularly. I was so overjoyed by the great news ... I printed it off and put it in everyone's pigeon holes at work and sent it by email to all the prayer warriors here in England, who are also praying. Rose at work came in crying when she read it ... she prays twice a day for you, morning and night ... and you have never met her or she you ... isn't it truly wonderful when we can have this inter-connections with people who care like this.

The well being day went very well ... I had a sports massage on my "wee" legs because I am in training for the race for life which takes place this Wednesday in Northampton. Debbie ... I am running this race for you again ... in celebration of your continued blessings! It will be at 7.30 pm this Wednesday, 21st May. I will run my heart out for you!!! Wouldnt it be great if one day you would join us!? Some people run, some people walk, but no bunny hops, sorry!

Well dear, I have the socks to pair.

God loves you and so do I

Keep up the good work, all of you ... and we will keep the prayers going up.

"Dear Lord, today I thank you for Debbie and for her amazing encouragement she gives to us all. Thank you that her markers are down, thank you that she has suffered less this time from the side effects. Dear Father, as she has her treatment now, keep her side effects to the minimum, just surround her in your love, and send your angels to watch over her. Amen"

It's Iris

What wonderful news about your markers, Debbie! I cried when I read your latest report and I ask that God will grant you the health and strength to enjoy your visit to Florida to share valuable time with your family. Being 40 is not so bad!! Hi Dewey: Nigel says no slacking in the studio - just get some painting done! We love you all and pray for Debbie's healing each day. God bless!!

Father, as Debbie starts another course of chemo therapy we call upon the promise of your power to work in us to protect Debbie's healthy cells - that they are not attacked by the chemo-therapy - and to increase and multiply her red and white blood cells. Thank you for the good food that she has ... that we all have ... and for the Vitamin C supplements that are so powerful in giving her strength and fighting the cancer. Hear our prayer!

UK - Thursday, May 13, 2004 at 10:12:47 (EDT)
Debbie, you are a true soldier in your fight with this cancer. With God's love and blessings as your sword and our prayers as your shield, winning one battle at a time, surely the war will be won and your health shall be restored. Keep the faith, and continue to believe that his will shall be done. Much love and many prayers for you and your family...

Hello Debbie. I took care of you at Century City Hospital in 2001. I am amazed at your strength and perseverance. Reading your updates gives me the strength to continue rejoicing in my many blessings and Gods' grace.
I am so sorry to hear that you continue to struggle with persistent disease. Simply put, cancer just sucks.
Dealing with my own daughters cancer(neuroblastoma) and recovery, as well as my Mom's leukemia and ultimate death from her disease has taught me that life does go on after cancer. The outcome is always a mystery and the process is always a drag, but as you know, the end of suffering is with Christ.
Debbie. Be well. I pray for you and your good health. Thank you for always sharing your story with me and brightening my day. Peace to Dewey and beautiful Aurora.
Sincerely, Marsii

Debbie, you don't know me but I did know Dewey many years back as well as Brian, Iris and many others from Corby. My sister is Carol McKeown (we are both from Liverpool) and I moved to Toronto, Canada 20 years ago and lost track of a few people over the years. Carol gave me your website address today and I wanted you to know that you and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers from now on and I will pass your prayer requests onto my friends here and in other countries. God bless.

Hi there

My colleagues at work are praying for you all ... especially Rose, Nikki and Kaye ... they all ask for you and tell me they are praying morning and night ....how wonderful.

"Today Lord (Saturday) I pray that you fill Debbie, Dewey's and Aurora's days with lovely experiences that they can remember as a family. Give them joy knowing that they are all surrounded in your love always. Amen"

Hey debbie, I bought Delirious CD - the worship one and I really love to play (and dance to!) "I will sing of your love forever" ... and I remember the happy times we had when we sang this together. Praise Jesus! Always! Love you very much and I am sending hugs. xxx

Dear Debbie, Dewey and Aurora

My colleague, Iris Tinto, told us of your problems. My heart goes out to you. My husband lost his mother recently from breast/liver cancer. Throughtout her illness she never complained and always put her trust in God. We are practising Catholics and found through prayer and the support of our friends and fellow church goers such a great sorce of strength.
I have been praying for you all and you in my thoughts most days.
My best wishes are with you all and may God continue to show the doctors and nurses treating you, the correct and most helpfull treatment to help you continue to fight your illness.
God bless.

Father in heaven we thank and praise you for Dewey's love and faithfulness to Debbie and Aurora. He is a good man.
Please continue to give him good health and strength as he cares for his family - and find him some time so that he can create more of his beautiful paintings!
We pray that Frank & Gloria's visit this week will provide many blessings.
Hear our prayer!

Gt Easton, UK - Tuesday, May 04, 2004 at 13:27:04 (EDT)

Aurora, HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY!!!!

-- from your friends you havent met yet! Michael(8yo), Megan (6yo) & Victoria ("Tori" 3yo) Aramanda. Our mom has told us about your mom and we are praying for her, your daddy and for you too! We live normally in Florida but we are living in England while Daddy attends a ministry training school. Then possibly mom will do the same this Fall. So... we may be here in England awhile, not real sure about much but that God is in control. My mom would love to come meet you & your daddy and spend sometime with your mom. She is asking God to arrange that for us (her) while we are so near. God is awesome and answers prayer so we believe we will meet you soon. Again, Have a blessed day today! YOU ARE FIVE!!! :)

Deb you are in my prayers daily. May God's sweet spirit continually bless you with peace, comfort & love. Your friend from TX, Laura
