The family and friends of Debra Horne are uniting to raise money to help with her battle against cancer. Please show your support!


Debra Horne was 34 years old when she was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer in March of 2004. Prior to this diagnosis, Debra had sought medical advice in December 2002 for weight loss surgery. Her Doctor encouraged her to try and lose the weight independently with diet and exercise. As an incentive Debra and her Doctor developed a plan that after loosing 100lbs, she could obtain a referral to a Plastic Surgeon for a breast reduction.
Debra reached her goal and in preparation for her consultation with a Plastic Surgeon, they scheduled a Mammogram for February 17, 2004. Two days later she was contacted and was told additional testing was needed. Debra had a 2nd Mammogram on February 20, 2004 and was referred to a Surgeon for a Biopsy on March 1, 2004, the test result was negative. Debra was scheduled for a Lumpectomy on March 18, 2004; a grape size tumor was removed along with 3 out of 9 Lymph nodes tested positive for Cancer, Stage 3 Breast Cancer.
Debra completed aggressive Chemotherapy treatment from April to September of 2004 which resulted in complete hair loss. Debra also completed Radiation from November 2005 to January 2005. In November 2005 Debra had a breast reduction and in April 2006 a complete Hysterectomy.
Debra is now 42 years old and has continued to maintain her weight loss and remain Cancer free for 8 years!
Debra has been employed by Merrymeeting Behavioral Health and provides support to people who suffer with Mental Health issues.
After a recent visit to the Emergency Room on February 26, 2012, test results from a chest x-ray and CAT scan showed enlarged lymph nodes again.
Debra underwent surgery on March 20, 2012 and it has been confirmed that the Cancer has returned. Debra has started aggressive Chemotherapy again.
We are putting together some Fund Raisers to help assist Debra and her Family in hopes of releasing some of the Financial burden they are going through, any donations would be greatly appreciated. Connie McCord, 1270 Riverside Drive, Vassalboro, ME 04989 – Cell Phone – 207-798-9951.
