Debbie's Story:

Debbie Green was a 7 year old girl from Benwood, WV. She was like every other little girl... she loved going to school, cheer leading, and playing with her friends. Debbie was loved by all who knew her. She enjoyed life to the fullest. In 1970, Debbie was diagnosed with leukemia. For two long years, she battled the disease with courage and determination.

On February 10, 1972, friends from all over the Ohio Valley put on a benefit show for her, calling it "Debbie Green Day", helping her during her difficult time. That day meant so much to Debbie and her family, but in less than 2 months, on April 4, 1972, Debbie lost her courageous battle with leukemia. Now, from tragedy comes triumph, and from sadness comes hope.

Debbie's memory lives on with this wonderful event which benefits local children who also suffer from leukemia and need our love and support, just like Debbie did in 1972.
