It was my greatest honor to be Carter's mother here on earth. Like many parents of children with special abilities, I went from having a healthy baby to having the ground ripped right out from under me--and my dreams of my family and life as it was--taken away when Carter was diagnosed. This is not just a sad story about the death of my child: THIS foundation is about a possibility that was born out of a tremendous loss. I am committed to providing a neutral space for people to learn about all of the options available for rehabilitation and healing the brain. They say parents often know the most about how to care for their child with special needs because they have had to be their biggest advocate. The Who Is Carter Foundation is here to share the knowledge that experienced parents have found while walking similar paths so others can benefit from their research and findings and make informed decisions.
