The friends and family of Carolyn Chandler are coming together to try and raise money for a beautiful funeral that she deserves. Donate!

Carolyn Chandler was a lively, light-hearted lady. Beautiful and compassionate; she touched all those around her with her easy going demeanor abd carefree laughter.
A mother of five, she placed more concern on the welfare of others than for herself. She had dealt with diabetes all off her life, however in 2009, the disease began to aggressively advance and take a serious toll on her health.
To save her life, both legs had to be amputated above the knee. This completely changed her and her family's lives. Due to financial difficulties, her children and widowed mother had to provide round-the-clock care to keep her in stable condition. The once independent and lively woman had to have all her basic needs; tolietry, bathing and feeding accomplished with the aide of her children.
She was a born fighter, however, Carolyn's condition continued to worsen. She was plagued with a multitude of other aliments that racked her once healthy frame to a ghost of it's former self and caused her grievous amounts of pain.
She was diagnosed with brain cancer and also started to develop cataracts on her eyes. She had began to recieve dialysis up to three times a week to clear her blood stream of toxins. In 2011, while being transported to a dialysis appointment, the driver of the vehicle attempted to avoid an accident and stomped on the breaks. Carolyn had not been properly secured to her seat by the attendant, which caused her to be thrown to the floor of the vehicle and seriously injured. She recieved a life threatening wound from the accident, one that became infected and required many surgeries in order to save her life.
The toll from all the illness and pain was too great on Carolyn's frail body, and her fighting spirit left this world in peace on May 31st, 2012.
Now her family is not only saddened by the loss of such a beautiful mother and friend, but have felt the heavy burden and stress of the outragous costs that burying a loved one incur. If anyone reading this can afford to donate to help with Carolyn's burial, it would be appreciated more than they could know. Carolyn was an amazing person and deserves to have a beautiful memorial to celebrate the unique and loving person we were all so fortunate to know..
