There are few people better qualified to speak about the positive impact that giving to Shriners Hospitals for Children can have on a child’s life than Carol. Born in 1934, Carol became a patient of the St. Louis Shriners Hospital when she was 2 years old. Between the ages 2 and 8, she bravely endured 10 surgeries to correct her club feet.
“The hospital helped me lead a good life despite all the challenges,” she said. “If not for them, it’s unlikely that I’d have met my husband. We met at a ballroom in 1957."

Carol and her husband have included Shriners Hospitals for Children in their charitable giving plan as a gesture of thanks and to help other children receive pediatric specialty care regardless of their families' ability to pay.
