A member of our community needs our help: Carolyn Wood is a longtime web design community member, and former editor of our sister publication, A List Apart. She is a gifted, passionate, and tireless worker who has never sought the spotlight, and never asked anything for herself.
Due to catastrophic medical problems, Carolyn can no longer walk, and can barely use her hands. Her medical insurance doesn’t cover the $9,000/month facility where she is currently warehoused, and making matters worse, Carolyn’s husband has leukemia. Since neither Carolyn nor her husband can work any longer, their life savings are being eaten up while they suffer in separate solitudes and get sicker, not better.
Two things can turn some of this around: physical therapy and money. It will take the whole web design community pulling together—but, together, we can raise the money Carolyn needs. Please donate what you can, and share Carolyn’s story with your friends and social networks.
