When I lost a good job, she held me up. She gave me peace of mind to go find a new job. At the same time, she and her brothers and sisters were dealing with the loss of their mother. After that, I got sick and almost died. She stayed by my side … always. She works full time, she is the heart and soul of our family. Thank you, Debora Peters, for being my wife.

Their assistance made it possible for our team to raise thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society to help those affected by cancer, and we are very grateful for their kindness and support.
