I Have Had My Life Perspective Altered Because of Debijean

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 6 People

    Inspired

    Nobody that I have come across on EP has ever written so movingly or postively about extreme adversity as she has. She shames and inspires me, in equal measure. I shall never forget her or the wisdom she has shared.

    I Love Debijean!

    We have all met this wonderful lady at EP. Her name is Debijean and she has end stage esophogeal cancer. Debijean has been the most positive force here in EP and in my life. She has taught me that no matter what adversities we face in life, we should face them head on with a...
