A big believer in volunteerism, she supports Living Beyond Breast Cancer with annual fundraising events as well as other community events, Sisters R Us Cancer Support Group and Susan G. Komen Philadelphia with their annual Race for the Cure event.
Deborah is no stranger to volunteering and has spent over 13 years as a Girl Scout Leader, where she is responsible for leading a troop, as well as serving as a Cookie Leader during the annual sales each year. She has a Bachelor of Science degree from Penn Morton College (now Widener University) in Behavioral Science as well as various certificates in child care education.
Debra is passionate about breast cancer advocacy because she is a caretaker for family members. She says, “I feel I bring a different perspective to the [Community Connector] group. I think more information needs to get out to underserved communities. I am dedicated to this cause in memory of my sister, who fought the battle for 9 years, and to my mother who is fighting onward for the past 24 years.”
