The Dream Team started this fund for Cristy Carter as she passed away so suddenly on Monday afternoon.  We cannot believe that such a sweet soul is gone!!  On Thanksgiving day she had a slight fall and hit her head, thought nothing of it but on Sunday her neck and face started to swell.   She went to the emergency room but they couldn’t find anything and sent her home; she got worse and returned to the ER.  They put her in an ambulance and sent her to Jackson as she lives in a small town in Mississippi.  From there, her blood pressure plummeted and her heart rate was really high.  They had to put her on a ventilator on Monday morning and her blood pressure continued to drop drastically and then both of her lungs collapsed.  A couple hours later her liver and kidneys shut down and then she became septic and was gone just a few minutes later.  Her blood tests showed that she had staph which she had years before and the trauma to her head set it off into her body somehow.

Cristy was an amazing business partner and friend as well as a daughter, sister, friend and single mother to Carter (8) and Rowan (4) who are both autistic.   Cristy’s family will have a great financial need now and in the future to help care for the boys.   Cristy was a single mother and the boys’ fathers were not a part of their lives.  Please help and spread the word so that we can collect as much as possible for her family, funeral expenses and her children.

Cristy and I worked closely together in our business even though we weren’t in the same state.  Cristy was not just not just an amazingly smart business partner, but a true friend!  She was one of the strongest women I've ever known, an incredible single mother dealing with not only one, but two special needs children.  She went above and beyond for them every single day!  She drove them 90 miles several times a week for therapy and whatever else they needed.  Her boys will remember that she was their rock and their safe place.  She was such a strong leader on our team so on behalf of our entire Dream Team, we love you and will miss you dearly my sweet friend!  Until we meet again.

Sherry Carter, Cristy's mom will be the recipient of the fund and will make certain that the boys are taken care of.

Giving again, as I know if you want the best for a special needs child it isn't cheap. Time goes on, but the costs don't stop. God bless Cristy's family and friends and I encourage everyone to keep giving and keep sharing. Every little bit helps these two boys she loved very much.

I can't imagine what those boys and Christy's family must be going through! I want to alleviate one of their fears: that of not being able to care for her children in the way she would have wished.
