    Deb is one of my co-workers and friends. She is just as amazing as this story makes her seem.
    If I ever have to go though something like this, I pray I could be even half as brave as Deb has
    been. Thanks to Jabberlog for getting the story out there. I just know that some “private
    person” who may be going through something similar will hear this and hopefully reach
    out and share with someone they know or love and be much better off because they did.
