As many of you know, my sister in law, Carolyn Dickson has been suffering from pulmonary fibrosis for many years. Her doctors at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center have told her that her only option now is a life-saving double lung transplant. She has remained positive, cheerful and is looking forward to a second chance at life.
Carolyn and her husband Larry live in Fresno, California where they are active members of the community. Carolyn has a son and four stepchildren. She and Larry have sixteen grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, worked for Sperry Univac, working in public relations and internal communications. After a successful career with Sperry; she left to work for Waste Management as a sales coordinator and editor of their regional newsletter and currently works for Republic Services as their community relations manager. Carolyn also loves her ministry work with the Mid-Valley Christian Men’s and Women’s Job Corps and looks forward to being able to spend more time coordinating its mission.

Lots of love your way!

On July 23rd, I will have completed my 4th month with little or none complications of my double lung transplant. Praise God. Thank you all so much for your donations, we are so appreciative. I was discharged from actually staying in the 30 minute distance from UCSF Medical Center on May 10th; however, my husband, Larry, drives me back for testing and clinic once a month visits. All in all, I feel wonderful and have had the opportunity to speak of this miracle at a Rotary Club meeting, a church and a pulmonary support group in hopes to encourage others. It is a blessing.
