Susan Carpenter, a teacher for 16 years, has touched the lives of hundreds of young children in Kindergarten and First Grade. She is the mother of two young children, Olivia and Sean; wife to David; and daughter of Merritt and Virginia Flehinger. She was diagnosed with acute leukemia and had to temporarily relocate away from her family for 4 months to New York City for intense treatment at Sloan Kettering Memorial Hospital. She will have to remain out of work for a year until her immune system is no longer compromised. Your donation will be used to sustain her family and defray uncovered medical expenses while she is unable to work.
