When Debbie Bellisio, from East Grinstead in West Sussex discovered she had cancer, she never thought the worst moment in her life could also lead to one of her most positive. It took her on a journey to become more adventurous than she ever thought possible – instead of putting things off to focus on the ‘everyday stuff’, Debbie now travels the world to remote countries struck by natural disasters and human conflict.
Before cancer, challenging opportunities didn’t seem to come Debbie’s way, but now she realises it was her lack of confidence and openness to them that was shutting them out. She loves her new outlook seeking adventure and looks forward to hearing where in the world ShelterBox will send her next.
Debbie volunteers for ShelterBox as a response team member; they are the men and women who are on the front foot of helping people in the wake of a disaster. The role is demanding and you never know what situations you might face. #ShelterBox #nofamilywithoutshelter #team #photography #response #aid #help #charity #cancer #inspiration #volunteersweek
