NOTE: This is created in honor of Carole for awareness & a plea for assistance toward her fight that necessitates a liver transplant.
To say this is a sweet, gentle, caring lady is a giver is an understatement; in the past she has demonstrated this many times over, e.g., participating in annual Multiple Sclerosis walks, running benefits, donating her time & energies toward numerous charitable causes: American Heart Association, American Legion, other various veterans-related orgs, & now American Cancer Society which this devastating diagnosis has now inducted her as a member recipient--these are just samples of her magnanimous & generous heart & nature. As a crossing guard, she had to painfully give up crossing kids where she once threw herself onto an oncoming car, saving a boy's life. There was never a time a child crossed her street who went without hats & gloves for she would go to stores & buy these herself--managers would hear of this & provide her discounts to buy in bulk.
Though she is a modest person, receiving this devastating news now forces her to fight for her life & be recipient of that 'pay it forward' philosophy she so instilled in her children & others. Please allow her to be the on the receiving end of this philosophy by providing her the gift of life. It is now her turn.
