THE STORY:

Carolyn Lukralle's passions have always been softball and baseball. Even in kindergarten, she was part of the softball league. She has always been very athletic and independent. She was a natural athlete. On October 30, 2012, her life changed dramatically.


On that day, she was in a serious car accident 20 miles north of Lake George. She was taken to Glens Falls Hospital, then transferred to Albany Medical Center, where she spent 15 days in intensive care. While there, she had surgery on her C5 and C6 vertebrae, spent a week on a ventilator, and then had a tracheotomy. On November 15 she was transferred to Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York, where she spent two weeks in rehab, followed by another surgery on her C2 to T2 vertebrae to help support her back as she grows older. Upon her discharge she was diagnosed as an incomplete quadriplegic.

Carolyn has now been at Cold Spring Hills Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Woodbury since January 14. She has some movement in her right foot, and we are praying constantly that she makes an outstanding recovery. She has been so strong throughout this tragedy.


Carolyn is a lifelong resident of Huntington and a 2010 graduate of Walt Whitman High School. The one thing that Carolyn wants so much right now is to be able to come back home and live with her family in Huntington. In order to be able to do that, she must have a handicapped accessible bathroom, entrance ramp to her home and a  generator to power her bed in case of emergency which would all cost about $22,000. We are pulling all our resources together to make this happen, but we need your help. We deeply appreciate anything you can do to help a fellow Huntingtonian make her dream come true.
