I have been smoke-free for 6 months....thank you Debi for helping me quit!!!!
May the God of all comfort be with Debbie family.May her fond memories be with you for a life time.

I was blessed to have been a personal friend of Debi. She was a true hero and angel to me. I have been with her when she spoke to many high school/junior high school classes. She definitely made a huge impression on all she spoke to. The kids would come up to her afterward and promise her they would never smoke. She will definitely be missed.
I didn't know Debi but as a smoker who also started young ( at 15 ) I too was inspired by her to quit when I saw the ad on TV and I tried many times. Today is my one year anniversary of being smoke free. Thank you Debi for being brave. Go with God & peace be with you!
sorry for your loss plalm 8318
Thank you Debi for sharing your life with others and helping in the fight against cancer. We stand up to you!
I know Debi from her ads. Her's was one of the two most effective I've ever seen, the other one being about wearing seat belts. I realize there was much criticism of the ad, but my guess is it was probably the smoking public, by and large who was the most vocal about it. Debi shared a great deal of vivid truth in her ad which I hope will have saved the life of many. She was, I'm sure a loved woman to her friends and family. I'm sorry you have lost such a brave person.
A brave woman who deserveds a lot of credit
It is good to know that Debi was a fighter for what was right. Sorry for your great loss.
I lost an aunt to this type and I quit smoking a week after last visit with her (20 years) and have never wanted another one. My sincere sympathy to the family. She was an inspiration to many, I am sure.
RIP, Debi Austin! Alan (North Carolina)

Debi Austin Family,
Debi left you here memories I too hope her story help others. Sound like that the worst thing that could happen to someone when you can not stop a senseless habit. As a young one I will try very hard not to let any drug take over my life. I will definitely be praying for her family who is left to mourn her death. Thank you for sharing.

I can clearly remember and appreciated Debi Austin's commercial. I have always had an interest in preventing classmates and friends from smoking. As a teen, I reached out to the American Cancer Society for a class assignment and a woman was sent whom also had a larynx removed which made a huge impression on the class.

Thank you for all you did to help people become more aware of the dangers of smoking. I lost my mother to small cell lung cancer, which was caused by smoking, so I understand the importance of your message. I'm glad you quit smoking instead of giving up and saying, "Well, I'm going to die anyway; I might as well smoke!" I would like to offer my condolences to your family!
I am one to say, that I do not smoke because of your commercial, RIP and thank you.

She was a courageous woman for putting the plight of millions of addicted smokers in the forefront. You have my condolences. I will be 21 years w/o a cigarette in May and know if I picked up one today, I would be right back. It is a horrible legal addiction.
