Courage Advocate

Debra Oakland – Courage Advocate


Over a 6 year period, Debra lost her 21 year old son Wade, her unborn baby girl in the 8th month of pregnancy, both brothers to AIDS, and her father to prostate cancer. The loss of other friends occurred during this time as well. She could have given up, but instead I asked herself what each of them would have wanted for her. She knew deep in her heart the answer was to live a life of courage, to encourage others, and to be happy. Debra says she has became a better person for knowing them and a stronger more courageous person in their absence. She chooses to love and honor each one and carries them in her heart as a precious gift.

Debra feels so much compassion for people going through loss and grief, so created a website called LivinginCourageOnline – “A Spiritual Oasis for Overcoming Life’s Biggest Challenges.” She decided to become a COURAGE ADVOCATE.

Today Debra and her husband Cody live in Laguna Beach, CA  They have walked this journey together lending each other support, strength and courage every step of the way, and live a blessed and happy life together.
