Dear Debbie, Dewey, and Aurora,
We met many years ago in Paris. My family moved to Paris in '89 time frame, and you two were utilizing the spare room on top of our building. I was the oldest of the children in that family. I have many memories of you helping me out in a time that language seemed an impossible barrier (Ma capacit de parler en franais s'est considrablement amliore. -- Although, it is FAR from perfect, thus why I finish this letter in English [smile])
My family's heart and prayers go to you and your family in this time of need. If there is anything we can do to help, please do not hesitate to let us know.
I must also note, that you have one beautiful daughter! She has those angel eyes that touch your heart. :)
If you have time, please drop us an e-mail, I would love to hear from you! And again, good luck, we are thinking of you all, and our prayers will be with you.

J'ai lu ton dernier message, et je devine tout ce que tu tais...
Ne perds pas courage ma chrie, nous sommes tous avec toi. Et mme si nos messages se sont fait moins nombreux, parceque nous aussi avons voulu croire ta gurison, nous n'avons jamais cess de penser vous et de vous prendre dans nos prires car ce que nous voulons c'est ta rmission totale.
Tant que tu ne l'auras pas obtenue, et mme au-del, je continuerai de prier pour toi et pour les tiens.
Ici cela sent l'automne : il fait presque froid certains jours et la lumire est plus douce, plus dore en fin de journe. Et lorsqu'il pleut c'est dj un peu novembre avec des odeurs de terre, d'humus et de bois brulant dans d'invisibles chemines. J'aime cette saison.
Il reste prs de la Tortinire un grand champ de tournesols. Ils sont plus petits que ceux qui vous ont accueillis aux Meurs en juillet, mais ils sont tellement jaunes encore, tellement beaux ! ...et je pense toi chaque fois que je passe par l.
Vous tes dans mon coeur ! Courage !

Tammy and I are thinking about you, and praying for you, Dewey, and Aurora! I don't know if you've already heard, but when I was in England 2 weeks ago, I met Dewey's parents at the Northampton church of Christ! They were wonderful! I didn't want to stop talking to them! It's a small world. They bragged about you non-stop. They had exciting news. I think it was their grandson, Kyle, who was being baptized the next Sunday! Take care and God Bless!

Debbie, Dewey and Aurora,
I just want to let you know that just as we have rejoiced with you over the victories, we continue to hold you up in prayer as you make decisions about future treatment. I know that with stage 4 cancer, it doesn't go away, it just goes into remission. So now, as it rears it's ugly head reminding us that it is still there, you are in our prayers more than ever. We continue to pray for healing, wisdom and that you will feel the comfort that only our Father can give.
We love you so much!
GA USA - Thursday, September 20, 2001 at 08:17:47 (CDT)

Much much love

Remember me from France? I was really shocked to hear from Hugh how sick Debbie had been, but your website is much more positive, so let's all keep on praying. Obviously we have all been terribly shocked by this week's events too, but there is HUGE support for the US here, so I think we'll all just have to hold on to our seats and see what happens. Sorry to send this in on the query site, by the way, but I couldn't seem to email you for some reason - if you mail me I can probably reply OK. I'd also like to help you guys financially, so please send me details of how I do that. Much love to you all from Stephen

Mes chers Amis,
Ce soir j'ai le coeur triste. Triste depuis cette terrible tragdie : tant de haine, de violence aveugle... Je ne peux comprendre. Je suis profondment choque.
J'ai pens vous ds que j'ai appris ce qui venait de se passer, parceque bien sr c'est votre pays qui a t atteint, mais aussi parceque je devinais que votre peine serait infinie.
En cette occasion, comme en tant d'autres, je veux m'associer vous, votre pire, votre appel l'amour... Dire et redire combien est prcieuse chaque vie.
Claudine et Christophe me demandent de vous embrasser, de vous dire qu'ils pensent beaucoup vous.
Je vous aime.

PRAISE THE LORD FOR ALL HE HAS DONE FOR YOU AND YOUR HEALING. God is so awesome. You continue to be in my prayers as you continue to grow stronger. We recently moved
back to Corpus Christi, Texas (Aug. 1st). It was a fast move for us. God has taken care of all the details. We are settling in
and enjoying the beach once again. I located some great pictures of Exodus that I will copy and send to you. Sweet memories. God bless you all!
LOVE PEGGY KEETON!!

Still praying for you and praising God for His goodness.
Debbie, you are at a crossroads now. He's brought you this far...Trust he will take you home to home to France. I know that whatever course of treatment you choose, it will help with your wellbeing.
God has blessed you Debbie, I know you feel his goodness, take it with you, wherever you go. Tell others of your blessings and only then will your trauma make sense.

I'm so excited about the news I keep telling everyone I meet - there are people I talk to about you all the time and do you know what? it gives me an opportunity to tell them about the wonderful things God has done and will do - so in a strange sort of way your illness has given us all opportunities to let people know about your website and more importantly, the power of prayer. I have just finished reading a book which showed trials which were conducted about prayer and little surprise, the trials proved without doubt that prayer does work, even when he recipient is unaware that they are being prayed for. Isn't that just wonderful. I believe that collective prayer like what you have been receiving, has more power and I am convinced beyond all doubt that prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have as Christians. If only I could pray more!
Keep positive - it only works!
Great Britain - Wednesday, September 05, 2001 at 16:32:30 (CDT)
It's been awhile as I have been disconnected. I just read the update and what a wonderful thought on resurrection. I'm sitting by my bedroom window and it is about 19h30 and the lighting is being beautifully displayed across the valley.
Read an article on Malcom Miller - the "Pope" of Notre Dame in the local newspaper and his love for Chartres Cathedral - he's the renowned English guide.
Think of you often and look forward to seeing you soon. Let me know of you plans -

Hey guys! Upon my return to Pepperdine everyone has wanted to hear my first hand account of seeing you this summer. Everyone is so jealous that I got to spend time with you, and I wouldn't want it any other way. Except maybe if you could come see them! Remember you have lots praying for you and thinking of you here at school! Let us know if you are stopping by this way!
Love you soooo much!

Just a note to tell you how excited I am for you. We have had some trials in our family. My daughter in law just lost her mother. My mother is in ICU with internal bleeding and has just received her 10th unit of blood. The good news is we have a new grandaughter. Although we have been runnning every where let me assure you that you are still in our prayers. You will continue to be in them.Our Lord is truly an awesome God...his power is unfathomable.

Such great news and I'm so glad it continues.
It was wonderful to see your dad at morning worship this past Sunday...the face is not so stressful now and that was especially nice to see again :-)
Sorry that Dewey's health is a problem, but I have prayed all along that he would be able to hold up through the stress and strain of caregiving. It's tough to watch the suffering of the one you love so much, all the while trying to stay strong and healthy yourself. Dewey, I do know what you're going through...sort'a, and I also know the power of God and a wonderful support group. I don't know what we would have done without our church family. And, here you are with a world-wide church support group. WOW!
Hang in there and know that we are all here for you too.
Sounds like life in Atlanta has been remarkable and I'm so happy that your mom and dad are able to live there now, and you can all be together.
We continue to lift you up to our great Comforter, He is everything to us.
Give hugs all 'round, Sweet Girl, and know that we love you,
Barbara & Bill Peeler
FL USA - Tuesday, August 28, 2001 at 08:18:57 (CDT)

So the big C is not for certain at this time. It's good to know it can be beaten. My paryers are for you and your family.
Have a FAANNNNNNtastic day!

God certainly has heard and answered our prayers. Praise be to God! He was so inundated with prayer requests form all over the world!
I know this was a horrible experience for you, but I think you have to admit a lot of really positive and wonderful things came about because of it. I think God used you (because he knew you and your family could handle it) as an example to the world of how to act and respond to this horrible disease. He
chose you to be our example of how to love him and trust him, that all things will work for good, and he will answer prayer. Thank you Debbie for being such a wonderful example to me and those around the world who have visited your website. Thank you for teaching us how to ralley together and pray todgether.
I feel like I know personally everyone that writes on your site, and have been comforted knowing they have been praying with me.
I will write more to your e-mail address. Love you and hope to see you again soon. Peggy
CA USA - Friday, August 24, 2001 at 14:48:38 (CDT)
ThIs is best bit of news I've read in a long time Debs. Well done, you've put up a strong fight! Aurora, your mommy can grow her hair now! Dewey, the relief we feel on your behalf is great, to say the least! God bless you all and keep you safe in his care.
U.K. - Friday, August 24, 2001 at 13:21:39 (CDT)
WOW!!! Modern MIracles are still happening. Praise Him!!!
The power of prayer is powerful. I pray that the doctor who wondered why you had this site does read it and now knows.. You all must be floating!!!! When your Mom called the other night and told Grandma the fantastic news were excited, dumbfounded, relieved, ectastic, flating and If we were like that you must be in the clouds. Have a FANTASTIC week and praise yourself, too. because without your determination no of our prayers or the diet, etc would have mattered. Debbie you are awesome.
Love ya bunches.
USA - Friday, August 24, 2001 at 10:27:50 (CDT)
Praise the Lord...He is so good. God has told us to totally depend on him for all things! You have done that, sweet girl, and He has surely heard your request.
We have never been involved in such a great blessing as this has been, with so many people all over the world. Living with one who suffers pain and needs healing, causes suffering of our own. I know that pain and I know that Dewey has been beset with pain over your illness, but has never lost the hope that lies out there for all who believe.
Anything is possible when we put our total faith and belief in Him...
He loves us so very much, but we must call on Him.
The Great Comforter has heard our prayers. He is alive and wanting to heal our sorrows, our pain, our bodies and our broken hearts.
Debbie, you have truly been an inspiration to me as you've kept your confidence in Him.
I am in awe of all that has transpired since we received the news of your illness from your mom and dad. Who would not want to know a God who loves us so very much?!?!?
Can hardly wait to hear what's next!
I know there have been hugs all 'round, but add ours to the love that flows there in Georgia...especially to Mom & Dad.
Much love to you'all, Barbara

FL USA - Friday, August 24, 2001 at 08:54:43 (CDT)
Debbie we rejoice with you because of your great news of healing. Our God is a great God and true to His word and keeps His promises. Prayer really does work. We have to go through these things because we are human. I would rather be made this way and be able to think and make decisions than to be pre-programmed or to have never existed. Through these times we come to know Him and His great Love, His infinite Mercy and His marvelous Grace towards us. As David wrote in Psalms 103 "Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities; Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit; Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Your Faith and courage has been an inspiration to us.
We Love You. Milton and Donna

Have you heard of Dr. Bodie? He is the Breast Cancer surgeon from Sacramento that got the government to allow
the US pOstal Department to print a Breast Cancer Stamp that actually gives .o1 back to Breast Cancer Research. He has several patents and he also is a very highly regarded surgeon and "whole being" physcian. I heard his speak today, but could not met him. He is going on a world tour soon and I was wondering if you had read anything about him. I will try to get you some of the pamphlets that he has published and any of the treatments he is recommending.
Hope you are having a good day. Anymore news on the other test results that you mentioned to Grandma. Praying for you all has taken on a more joyous and fun tone now that we can actually see in our human eyes God's wonderous miracles that he has chosen to bestow on you.
Gotta Go have a GREAT Day tomorrow and have Dewey and Aurora give you an extra hug today from me.

First I want to say, Girl you look beautiful with no hair.
I have been keeping up with all your news. It is such an awesome web site. During all your physical struggles with this cancer you still praise God, that's what it is all about. You probably don't know how many you touch daily. What an inspiration and testimony to God's love you are. It seems so long since I've seen you and yet I feel like it was just yesterday we were all dancing on the Queen Mary. You have been in my prayers for months, I am sorry I haven't written until now. I share your story with my friends here, they all want to meet you. Aurora looks just like her momma, what a beautiful child! I love all your precious pictures. Thank you for sharing your life with me once again. I see you living life to the fullest and that is how it should be when we're in Christ. I love you Debbie Bridges Franklin and I ask for total healing that only comes from our Father. What an Awsome God we serve!

Just wanted to rejoice with you in the news of your healing bones- though not at all surprised. Not just because I know that God is faithful and capable of anything, but also your pictures show you so full of life, and looking/sounding better every week.Im fully expecting to hear good reports about the hip and everything else too. Take care,

We have been hearing updates from Rick from time to time, but today he called me at work to tell me to go check out the website and read the good news. CONGRATULATIONS on having such an amazing fighting body, you are incredible. That and all of that healing energy that all of your loved ones are sending your way - including folks who we have told to send healing thoughts who don't even know you.
Happy happy day!
much much healthy love,
Amy & Nick

Dear Debbie, Dewey and Aurora - I am so thankful to our dear Father for the good news which you have received. We will continue to pray fervently for continued recovery. Statistics do not take into account the might power of God. Please have all your friends and loved ones to continue to pray for my daughter and friend of Gloria and Frankie, MITZI HOLLAND. Dewey, we feel that God specifically provided your parents to teach and help Mitzi and her family when they were in England. Lifelong friendships were formed.
We ask God's blessings upon each of you and continue to look for good news.

Oh Deb, what great news....but did we doubt???
So sorry we haven't sent messages for a while, but have had a lot going on here too. We went to North Carolina for a 2 week stay with our kids, but ended up staying 3 glorious weeks that we hated to see end. The weather was pleasant, enjoyable enough for Bill to get outside for nice walks. We remodeled Kristy's kitchen while there, all of us working very hard, the kids included. It was fun...but know it was because we were all together on the project. Looks great too!
When we returned home, Bill had his 6 month check up and it went very well. After his accident and paralysis 3 years ago, the Dr. told him he would never get his left hand back. But, while examining him this time, he asked Bill to grasp his hand, which he did. The doctor was VERY pleased that it had not "locked-up" after all this time, and immediately made arrangements for him to be back in therapy. It is going very well and we are soooo thankful. His PSA levels were waaaaaaaay back down too, hopefully the visit with the Urologist will go as well. So...we're back on track too.
Good news all the way around! :-)
We were sorry to not see you while you were here, but see from the pics that you had a wonderful and restful time. Just loved the pics from DW...always fun to see Mickey and Minnie!
Can't wait to see what you decide to do about future treatment. My sister-in-law Sandy, has been struggling with cancer and chemo and just continuing to live until a cure comes along. We always pray for the two of you as a team! I told my brother about your website and hope he sees your latest news.
Better get with the action around here...lots to do today.
Take care sweet girl and know that you are loved.
Give big hugs to your mom and dad and tell them for me that I greatly admire them for being the people they are, but also for raising you with such a great hope!
Much love, Barbara

Hi Debbie, Dewey, Aurora, Millers and Bridges!
The first thing, no, the second thing I did this morning was check the web.
I hope that all who have been praying so fervantly for this report felt as triumphant as I did!
I walked up town today for a cup of tea and could hardly restrain myself from doing cartwheels!
I know that this is an incomplete report, but, to move from no hope to much hope is "sufficient for the day".
You must have been so very happy to not need your ration of chemo. yesterday.
Lance Armstrong will probobly be calling you for advice!
When he does, tell him, Medicine and Prayer.
I feel as though I played a part in this healing with my prayers, even mine. I hope everyone feels the same way.
Does this mean I must rush back to France and chop wood?
Oh Dear, Oh dear, that wood is getting hard!
Lots of Love, and Hugs, and Kisses.
Mom and Dad
