Balloon artist Deborah Fellman has terminal cancer.

[Deb’s] telling two of our fellow balloon artists about a wacky new design she saw.

“He made these reindeer blasters,” she says. “Oh, we were dying!”

To honor Debs, a devoted group of friends and colleagues gathered from around the country to help create a mammoth, 20,000 balloon display in her hometown of Richmond, Virginia. It’s a beautiful story.
