Carolyn Needs Our Help!
Carolyn Evans is a 61-year-old woman who is very ill. After 28 years of struggling with type-1 diabetes, her doctors have determined that she now needs a kidney transplant. Until a donor kidney is found, Carolyn will be on dialysis three times a week for four hours a day. She is one of the kindest people you’d ever hope to meet and she needs our help. The cost of a transplant can be extremely overwhelming.
Carolyn is a lifelong resident of Central Falls, Rhode Island and graduated from Central Falls Senior High School in 1973. Carolyn has been a stay at home mother her entire life. Her various illnesses have kept her from doing many of the things she loves to do. Carolyn suffers from epileptic seizures (called Grand-Mal seizures) and has since the age of 11. In 2005 her diabetes caused her to have quadruple by-pass heart surgery at Miriam Hospital in Providence. Her Type-1 Diabetes has caused other complications, including neuropathy, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, and cataracts.
Carolyn is a mother to three children and has been married to her husband for over 35 years. She has volunteered for the Central Falls Little League for over 10 years and three of those years she served as the concession stand manager. She also volunteers her time at her son’s Martial Arts Academy in Providence, RI and helps families run fundraisers to cover travel costs for tournament competitions all over New England.
Transplants are lifesaving; but financially draining. Carolyn’s husband Thomas is a retired truck driver who has been forced to go back to work part time at a local golf club to help cover medical costs. The Evans family is facing very high medical costs, including co-pays, lab fees, insulin, anti-rejection medications and much more They cannot do this without your help.
To help offset these expenses, a fundraising campaign in Carolyn’s honor has been established with Help Hope Live, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, are held by Help Hope Live in the Northeast Kidney Transplant Fund, and are administered by Help Hope Live for transplant-related expenses only.
