Carol Grippe's Cancer Fight

Carol was recently diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (cancer of the bone marrow). She has started a type of treatment that is very costly. Although some of the treatment costs are covered by insurance, it will be hard to make ends meet now that she is retired. Since her diagnosis she has been hospitalized three times. Each time for almost a week. The bills from the hospital stays are piling up.

In addition, Multiple Myeloma in the advance stages causes the bones to spontaneously fracture and Carol is dealing with the pain from several fractured bones making mobility very difficult. Therefore, Carol, and her husband Phil, also need to find new housing that will accommodate both of their health care needs. Their current home has only one bathroom located on the second floor. Not only is it unsafe for her to climb stairs, it is very painful.  Our hope that these added financial stressors can be eliminated or significantly reduced in order for her to concentrate on fighting the good fight and to focus solely on her health. I am reaching out to all the lives that Carol has touched in one way or another and asking for assistance.

For all of those who know Carol, you know that she is a loving, compassionate, giving person. She is a devoted mother not only to her own children but to all the children she has welcomed into her home through her daycare. Throughout the decades she has taken care of many kids, caring for them and loving them unconditionally. She is an extraordinary grandmother, wife, sister and a true and loyal friend. She is someone that you can always turn to in time of need or just when you need someone who will listen. Now Carol desperately needs your help. Please help if you can and thank you for your kindness and generosity.

Carol was admitted into the hospital on June 29th for Edema. The fluid buildup caused extreme swelling in the feet, legs, stomach and chest. She is also battling an infection that the doctors are still baffled by. She has undergone several tests to try and determine the cause and type of infection so they can treat it accordingly. Our hope is that this will be resolved soon so we can bring her home.

Her spirits have been down. As I sit by her side and read the beautiful messages along with your generous donations her spirits have lifted considerably. She is incredibly touched by the outpouring of love that she is receiving. My mom thanks you from the bottom of her heart and sends her love back to all of you.

I will be withdrawing the money periodically and managing her funds in order to start paying down her bills. I, and on behalf of her family, would like to personally thank you for being there for my mom and supporting her journey.
With love,
Sue (Carol’s Daughter)
