Doubling Down With the Derricos star Karen Derrico is giving thanks and sharing an update on Momma Debbie. She took to social media to let fans know how the special lady is doing and made sure to show her appreciation to her loyal fans as well. Scroll down to take a look at the new video of Debbie and see what else Karen had to say.

Who is Momma Debbie?

Fans met Momma Debbie Hogan on TLC’s DDWTD and on social media. Her daughter, Tiffany, tragically passed away. Karen and Deon Derrico’s daughter, Dawsyn, needed a heart tissue donation, so Tiffany was able to save the little one’s life. To this day, the Derricos have remained close to Debbie.

Recently, both Deon and Karen have been sharing posts about Debbie on social media because she could use some extra support. About a year ago, Debbie was involved in a car accident and suffered serious injuries, including fracturing “3 vertebrae in her neck resulting in paralysis from the chest down.”

She’s currently in Spinal Cord Injury Functional Integrated Therapy in California in hopes that she will be able to walk again. Amid this, the Derricos have requested prayers and donations to support Momma Debbie.
