Welcome to Dabneyland
I know.
Kind of an odd name for a website, but what do you do when your first and last name sound a little wonky and may be hard to remember?
You learn fun tactics to spruce things up. So, no. 
My name is not Daphne. 
Or Darcy. 
Or even Bab Knee. (All of which I've been called.)
And my last name, Hedegard (pronounced Head-uh-guard), is equally quirky, so I've settled on Dabneyland.
It just sounds fun. 
After facing multiple sicknesses (cancers, strokes, pulmonary embolisms, open heart surgery, just to name a few.), I need fun. 
And I bet you do, too. 
That was my main desire in creating this website. To share a little joy with those around me.
My guess is that if you've found me, you (or a loved one) is facing some unsettling news. If that's the case, then I'm so very sorry for your struggle. But don't lose hope just yet. Because this short blonde knows a thing or two about teaching wounded souls how to amp up their hope for revitalized health. 
See. You've found the right place. 
If you need to see it to believe it, keep scrolling to see a photo that was taken when I was 25, holding my newborn baby who went through chemotherapy with me while I was pregnant.
And I'm here to tell you that...
God uses anyone (practitioners). 
Anything (medicine). 
Or nothing at all (miracles) to bring healing. 

He's God.

He can do whatever He wants, whenever He wants...even if a well trained physician has told you otherwise.  
And just so you know, I want to be clear that my comment wasn't a dig on doctors. I have a handful of them I absolutely adore! The truth is that God doesn't care what school you've graduated from, because let's face it. Any ounce of intelligence a highly trained practitioner exhibits was given to them by our Heavenly Father for the benefit of others.
I think we forget this sometimes.
So hang in there. 
There's hope. I promise. Keep believing the best for you circumstance!
Dabney, Madison and Jason Hedegard
