Debbie is 46 years old and has been battling Congestive Heart Failure since 2010. She has watched her heart function continuously get worse since being diagnosed with CHF. Then, last October her heart became so weak that it was unable to pump enough blood through her body, so that her major organs began to shut down. It was then that her doctors decided that the only option left was a heart transplant.
Debbie has lived most of her life in Marin and Sonoma Counties. She has been married to her husband, Dan, for more than a quarter of a century. Together they have two children; a 27-year-old daughter, Kera, and their 17-year-old son, Gideon. Debbie worked for the County of Marin Health and Human Services for close to 20 years. She supported her family as the primary bread winner, which allowed her husband to be a stay at home dad and raise their two kids. She continued to work for three years after her diagnoses of heart failure. Finally, due to her failing health, she was forced to retire in 2013.
