Recently, I learned of the unfathomable medical tragedy that changed the life of Carol Decker a year ago this Sunday. I don’t know Carol and her family personally, but I have been deeply touched by their incredible strength and optimism. Carol’s husband Scott maintains a blog, where you can learn about their story and the reality that Carol and her young family face.
Starting on Sunday June 14, there will be a 3 day silent auction to help raise funds toward the almost $80,000 in medical bills they will need to pay. This auction has been coordinated by Carol’s close friend Erica. I have donated an organic Rogue bag to help raise funds. If you would like to support this event, visit the Auction for Carol blog. If you would like to donate an item for the auction contact Erica at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are so many wonderful items to bid on, so definitely check it out! You can also simply make a supportive monetary donation, by clicking the PayPal button on the right side of the page at the Auction for Carol site.
Since I learned about the Deckers, I think of them daily. Carol has been through something I can not even begin to imagine; physically, psychologically or emotionally. It is deeply inspiring to see her determination and strength to heal, be there for her children and to learn how to live her life in a new way.
