Deprived of oxygen for a time as a result of a 1980 motor vehicle accident, Debbie was also paralyzed on her right side. She has worked hard in therapy and has come a long way back. Debbie is now able to work a part time job and has found the time to publish a book of her own poetry. Around the Clubhouse you can find her taking minutes at important meetings and composing and distributing the daily schedule.
