Last week Carol Bostick, mom, hairstylist, and friend, received alarming news about her health. As she was working diligently helping others and being a light to those around her, unbeknownst to her and her family, she was also facing serious health issues.
Carol is currently being treated at Froedtert Medical College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin by some of the best doctors & nurses in the country. She is going through a rigorous healing, restoration, and rehabilitation process and will be in recovery and rehabilitation for a minimum of one (1) year.
As many of you know, Carol is a hair salon owner and lifelong resident of Racine, Wisconsin. She has spent her life devoted to God, family, friends, underserved youth, customers, church, the sick, homeless, forgotten, and shut-in. She is a true friend and pillar of the community.
Although her medical needs and expenses are handled, sustainability and financial security for an entire year without work income will present its challenges.
But with the help of family, friends, & supporters…ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!
How Soon Does Carol Need Help?
Carol had to immediately stop working with no advanced notice or prior warning. Money needs to be raised for her monthly living expenses as early as April 1st. The goal is to raise $10,000 within the next 2-3 months to cover living expenses for the next 10 months.
How Will Your Funds Help?
Carol is a single mother with five (5) children and ten (10) grandchildren, all of which live out-of-state except for the youngest. Funds raised will ensure that her cost of living and sustainability are not impacted as Carol fights this disease back to health. Carol’s stress, anxiety, and worry will be lessened by not having to worry about financial matters which will help accelerate her recovery and peace of mind.
