Unfortunately, our dear sweet pink sister, Debbie, passed away this morning.  She hasn't been on here for awhile.  Olga and I have both been corresponding with her through e-mail.  I have recently been in touch with her sister through Facebook.  Her sister sent me a message early today with the news.  This really hit me hard, as I met Debbie and Dave in 2012 when I was in Florida.  Tom and I were looking forward to having dinner with them again in April.

Debbie and I went through the same chemo and radiation treatments at the same time back in 2009 -- I so cherished her support and friendship here on this board.

What I will always remember are those $#%*& Jazzercise classes that she kept up during chemo -- I could barely crawl to work and home to bed every day, and this woman who was 20 years older than me was working AND taking Jazzercise!  I always told her she was just doing it to make me look bad. Smile 

I feel like I should go take a Jazzercise class, to honor her memory -- she would laugh her head off if she heard me say that!

Jean and Olga, if sometime down the road you hear of her obituary, and/or a place where her family would like donations to be made, please let us know.

I realized she had not been on for a while. I always hope it is because they are getting on with life, and I guess in fa t she was. Just to a different place. I am so sorry for her family and her friends. Traci, I use to wonder how in the world she had the strength for jazzercize when I barely survived going to the grocery store.
My condolen es to her family and all of her friends on this site as well. It just takes something more each time we lose another pink, even though we know the odds from the fime we walk out of the doctors office.

She was a lovely classy lady, always warm and welcoming to board members, and I'm so so sorry that she is gone. 

I am very sad.

My candle is lighting , my tears are pouring, I am still smiling, remembering Debbie  today. My Turn now- her screen name is the clue to her character. She was always positive and cheerful, sweet and caring no matter what ... and brave. She has been the fighter, who had tried most of the available Chemo drugs.  She helped many survivors welcoming new members

We never met in person, however she helped me to move on and live a normal life after my second diagnosis. Even being in pain in hospice she wished me luck with my PET.

Thank you Debbie  You have been missed Rest in peace

Debbie's post were always so thoughtful and reflective, you could tell she

gave it some thought before she put her words in writing. You know what

she told me in one of her last emails 

" I have not posted my situation on CSN because of all the sadness in losing so many of our sisters.  "

This is just how thoughtful she was, she wanted to spare us the sadness, can you believe her?

But this is how she was she played the cards she was dealt and she played them well. So with

that said, I think I will remember her with a warm smile, Debbie giving everyone much needed

support and advise, Debbie jazzerising her little heart out, Debbie fighting like pink sister that

she will always be to us all.

This is very sad to hear.I haven't had internet in over a month.Problem after problem with our provider.It would be 2 weeks at a time.I kept thinking of my Pink Brothers and Sisters wondering how things were and if everyone was OK.I try to check in everyday but miss now and then. Now this saddens me.What my fear was someone passed and now I read it happened.A shock since I'm so far behind. Tears flowing.I was gone and was hoping not to come back to a loss.

Prayers and Thoughts to her family and friends.She will be missed.
