Welcome to Dabneyland!







My name is not Daphne.


Or Darcy.


Or even Bab Knee. (All of which I've been called.)


And my last name, Hedegard (Head-uh-guard), is equally quirky, so I've settled on Dabneyland.


See. It just sounds fun.


After facing multiple sicknesses (cancers, strokes, pulmonary embolisms, open heart surgery, infectious diseases, etc.), I need fun.


I bet you do, too.

My guess is that if you've found me, you (or a loved one) is facing unsettling news. If that's the case, please don't lose hope. Because this vertically challenged blonde knows a thing or two about teaching wounded souls how to amp up your hope for revitalized health. See. You've found the right place. If you need to see it to believe it, take a peak below of the photo that was taken when I was 25, holding my newborn who went through chemotherapy with me while I was pregnant. ​ ​ I'm here to tell you that... ​ God uses anyone. (practitioners) ​ Anything. (medicine/herbs) ​ Or nothing at all to bring healing (miracles) He's God. He can do whatever He wants, whenever He wants... even in the face of a well-trained physician telling you otherwise. (Side note. This isn't a dig on doctors. I have a handful of them I adore! It's just the honest truth that God doesn't care what school they've gone to--let's face it. Any ounce of intelligence a person exhibits was created by Him for the benefit of others. I think we forget this sometimes.) So hang in there. There's hope. I promise. Subscribe and see. {For those who want more of a formal bio, read on} ​ ~~~ ​ Dabney Hedegard is a writer, speaker, and (former) professional patient who has been sick a good portion of her life. 21-years, to be exact.

I know. Kind of an odd
name for a website.

But what do you do when your first and last name are wonky and hard to remember? You learn fun tactics to spruce things up. So, no....
