Caroline Recovery Fund

$3,634 of $4,500 goal

Raised by 84 people in 8 months
Created October 1, 2017
After two weeks of sickness, our Caroline was diagnosed with GBS for the second time in her life.

Guillain-Barré (Ghee-yan Bah-ray) Syndrome is an inflammatory disorder of the peripheral nerves outside the brain and spinal cord.

Currently, she is holed up in Vanderbilt hospital, where she'll be for the next little while. She's got her parents with her, a rotating crew of visitors and an endless supply of Sprite. She does have some health insurance (Thanks, Obama!), but has been out of work and will be out of work for an undetermined amount of time. She is also unsure of how much her insurance will cover.

SOOOO, we're going to do the only thing we know how to do and put a bunch of her favorite bands together and raise some money to help offset the costs and living expenses while she can't work. Facebook event here!

Lineup TBA!

From Caroline's Facebook Page: Just a little update: After almost 2 weeks of battling health issues , this morning I was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré Syndrome.
This is my second bout with GBS, which is apparently very rare, but I'm super optimistic about my treatment and recovery here at Vandy. I'm in little to no pain currently, and I've already started treatments.
I've already had such an incredible outpouring of love and support from my Cold Lunch and Vinyl Tap families, and the best friends I could ever hope to have. I love you all so so much!
I appreciate your patience with my text responses. If you have any Cold Lunch questions, feel free to email us. Love y'all!

Thank you all so much for the continued shares and donations! Thanks to everyone that came out to Everything Hurts Fest. It was a huge success! Caroline is in a rehabilitation facility in Nashville for the next couple of weeks and will hopefully be getting back to work soon after. Feel free to keep sharing!

Hey party people! It's looking a lot like Caroline will be back in town for Everything Hurts Fest at 5 Spot! We are less than $50 from our original goal of $3000, which is amazing! Thank you all so much for helping out. It is still pretty unclear how long she'll be out of work and what kind of costs she'll be facing from the treatments. So, we're upping the ante a little bit! We've made a new goal of $4500. If we make our mark by Sunday, the cold lunch crew will get tattoos of Caroline's choosing in locations of Caroline's choosing. (Hopefully, I'll get those eyebrows I've always wanted). See yous out there!

We have solidified our lineup for Everything Hurts Fest! As promised, we'll be dying our hair pink before the show. Just a reminder that if you've donated anything to this campaign, you'll be on the guest list at the show. If you've donated over $30, we'll have a shirt waiting for you at our merch table. We'll also have raffle tickets available for purchase at the door for a chance to win some great prizes!

Howdy! Caroline is home resting in Tuscaloosa for a spell, but should be back in town for this show! She has minimal movement in her face, but that's a big step. We have the lovely Olivia Throckmorton working up a t-shirt design as I write this. We are going to be announcing the lineup in the next couple of days. At this point though, any donors will be on the guest list at the show on 10/15. Also, if your donation was more than $30, we'll have a Everything Hurts Fest t-shirt for you at the show. Lastly, some of the rest of the cold lunch crew will be dying their hairs pink if this campaign hits $2000 by the end of Friday. We're so close!
