Deb's Breast Cancer Journey
is Deb with her parents, Howard and Shirley Ogle
in the Summer of 1967, in Benson,
MN where Deb grew up. Her father owned and operated
Howard's Produce where he bought and sold poultry,
eggs, cream, feed, seed, fertilizer, Butler buildings
and Tyler fertilizer spreaders. Her mom was his
bookkeeper. They both got real estate licenses and
bought, fixed up and sold several homes. They worked
hard, played hard and enjoyed life and they gave
Deb values and strength that she would draw on during
her breast cancer journey.
|After graduating from Macalester
College with a major in English and minors in religion
and music, Deb pursued a successful
career in telecommunications before founding
her own company, Positive Connections® in 1985.
Following her father's example, Deb has always been
an active participant in local and business affairs.
This picture is from 1993 and shows Deb accepting
the Presidency of the networking group LeTip of
York, PA. Activities like this helped Deb develop
the communications and networking tools that she's
used to share what she's learned from her breast
cancer journey with others.
| Deb loves to travel. This picture was taken during
a 1995 visit to San Francisco on a trip that combined
business with visits to several friends. Friends
have always been an important part of Deb's life. Friends encouraged
Deb to use email to keep them up to date on
what was happening with her breast cancer. An ever-widening
circle of friends received those emails.
