A longtime transport company employee who drives railroad workers, Carolyn currently is unable to work following seven surgeries on her knees and jaw within the past two years. Most of the surgeries were not covered by insurance.

Carolyn also lives with the challenges of polyarthritis, COPD, celiac disease and some paralysis on her left side.

Known as a woman with a lot of heart because of her generosity and giving nature, Carolyn now can use your help.
