    Debbie was diagnosed with acute leukemia in the spring of our 8th grade year. Karen is correct that she died in our freshman year. It was 1971. She passed away in Riverside Hospital in Columbus after a debilitating battle going through chemo and radiation. There were no such things as bone marrow transplants in those days to save leukemia patients.
