NCC19 Presenter: Debbie Howard

Debbie's two younger sisters (one who lived nearby and the other who lived several states away) worked together with her to meet their mom’s needs during that first year. Then, as the disease progressed and her needs became greater (and her sisters' comp time ran out!), she moved from Tokyo back to South Carolina live in and provide 24/7 support. She ran her business off the dining table her family had eaten at since she was in the 3rd grade, utilizing time zone maximization, Kinko's, Office Depot, and anything else she could to make it work.
