About Carole

Carole's Story

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.

Thank you.

Carole's Daughter owns Etsy Shop, Candlemaker. I've never met her but I've heard so much about her of recent. What a sad story, please help in any way possible. Twitter for Carole, Blog for Carole and if possible post an item in your Etsy shop to benefit Carole. I'll be posting one very soon!

I hope that even by just tweeting I can help Carole. Sounds like she has spent her whole life helping others and the fact that she has been so important to children as a crossing guard in the past touched me.
