About Steve and Debbie Hix
Steve and Debbie have lived in Huntersville since 1982. They have two children in graduate school. They were dentist in practice until Steve retired in 2011 after his ALS diagnosis. In the almost six years since his diagnosis he has gone from being an active practicing dentist and 25 mile a week runner, to someone who uses a power wheelchair to get around and has lost the use of his hands and his ability to speak. Life now for him, for our family, is very different from the one we looked forward to living. Still, we ARE living each day, Thankful for each day.
