Facebook page is helping girl heal

The community has shown its amazing powers of grace for one of its own, Carmen Garringer.

Carmen, 8, was diagnosed with cancer recently and is being treated at Children’s Hospital. A dear family friend set up a Facebook page, Caring for Carmen, to keep everyone informed of her care and arrange support for her and her family. Leslie Burns is no stranger to organization, and she has made a difference in this family’s life. Carmen loves knowing that so many people are praying and pulling for her. Please “like” her page, as she enjoys seeing it grow.

This child is one of the sweetest, smartest and bravest community members. I know that we will see great things from her in the future!Thank you for all the support.
