My Town Hero nomination: Danny and Debbie Gallaher

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) – Debbie Gallaher said her parents are her hometown heroes.

Her father, Danny Gallaher, had a heart attack in 1992. As a result, he and his wife, Delena, were left to pick up the piece left from extensive medical care and emotional set back. Debbie said her parents found a way to make life work after Danny’s sudden illness and have proven to their children that anyone can overcome an obstacle with perseverance.

Debbie said to this day, many of her friends still call her parents Mom and Dad, and no matter what is going on in her parents’ lives, they still make themselves available to help others.
