the power of the human spirit is unmeasurable and indescribable

offer encouragement while they travel through their journey.  Deb was able to  help people find their own strength, dignity, and grace during very difficult times. 
As a result of this work, she has joined forces with Cape Wellness Collaborative , an amazing organization that services not only cancer survivors and

their families, but the medical professionals as well. Deb will continue to have YOYP collaborate with Cape Wellness to serve their community in their healing process.
Deb is a true believer that in creating space, peace, & quiet in our mind, body, and heart will allow for a more gentle life.
