Carol is a writer, teacher, and chef and considers it an honor to have worked as an educator for many years. In 2009 Carol was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma and was forced to cut down and eventually eliminate the teaching and writing she so loves in order to undergo treatment. She endured four rounds of chemotherapy, but the disease has repeatedly returned. Carol's doctors have now determined that her only chance of survival is through a stem cell transplant and luckily her sister, Nina, is a donor match. She will not be able to work for the next year, and anticipates deeper financial hardship. She is in needs of funding for home care, living expenses, and transportation.
