Inspirational totally... what a strong and amazing women. How I would love to just travel around Australia but perhaps not by foot, either walking or running. Raising awareness and fundraising for breast cancer, Deborah's story made me laugh, feel the pain and cry the tears as I enjoyed her journey.
