Because of Siskin Hospital, I can hug my grandkids

March 12, 2013

Carolyn Raborn and her loving husband of 26 years had just finished building their dream home when her world was instantly and forever changed.

A tragic automobile accident claimed the life of her husband, Sam, and left her paralyzed from the waist down.

Faced with overwhelming loss and an uncertain future, Carolyn arrived at Siskin Hospital. The caring staff rallied around her, helping her through every twist and turn in her journey back to independence. Her loving family, strong faith, sweet spirit, and inner strength kept her from ever giving up.

Today, her smiling face continues to brighten the halls of Siskin Hospital, as she volunteers each week. With two beautiful grandchildren, Carolyn’s life is filled with many reasons to enjoy simple pleasures, like sharing a special hug with a little someone who thinks she’s the light of the world . . . and she’s thankful for every single moment.

Because of Siskin Hospital, I CAN.
