Carmen Needs Your Help
Carmen Thompson had a life altering accident in the summer of 2007. While mowing the grass at the farm, her mower got tangled up in a chain that was attached to a one-ton A frame that came crashing down on her spine. Her husband Terry saved her life but twelve weeks later they came home to a very different life. From that point on, she has been paralyzed from the waist down.

Hello Friends! Today is May 5 of 2020 and in 3 short days I will meet my new service dog! Due to the recent virus scare we will not be meeting our dogs in the prison but will be meeting them at a library parking lot and grounds near by. I can’t wait to share with you all the dog that chooses me and that will be our new family member! I will share pics and video here and on my caringbridge.org site.
Thanks to you I am taking this huge step from a 2 lb Pom to an almost 100 lb Big Fatty as I like to call him. Can’t wait! God is good and I am full of JOY!
Love you all!

Carmen so happy to read you are getting a service dog. They are so amazing and I am delighted to read that prisoners are learning a skill by training him. I love Goldendoodle they have such a wonderful loving temperament. A friend has one that visits nursing homes and children's hospital for comforting. Good luck. You have a great Mom and Dad.

Carmen I only heard of your accident last week. Reading your story and testimony is so humbling and inspiring. When I think back to the Carmen I knew in high school.. I’m not at all surprised by how you chose to see the positive and continue to share Christ through your story! Praying for you and your dear husband. Love LeAnne Foster Hale
