Giving Back: In Memory of Carol Green
Carol Green took life by the reins – literally and figuratively. Once she learned she was diagnosed with colon cancer, it came as no surprise that she dove deep into her new reality. She quickly learned how screening really can save people’s lives, including her own. Unfortunately, Carol also realized that cost prohibited some people from getting screened.
One of her greatest passions was horses. She loved horseback riding and took great pride in training and caring for them. Upon Carol’s passing, her step daughter Beth Green said it best, “Carol got on her horse on September 9th. I know she’s out riding in the vineyards, enjoying the last light of an autumn sunset.”
Carol lived life to the fullest, but always kept sight of what was important: giving back. In late 2010, we learned of Carol’s death and the gift she left to our organization. She believed in helping people and wanted to ensure screening was available to everyone, regardless of their financial status. With her extremely generous donation, we help carry on Carol’s vision by increasing funding for colon cancer awareness and screening programs, including Blue Hope Financial Assistance.
Because of Carol and her giving spirit, many lives have been saved. We’re truly grateful to Carol Green and her family for what they have done to support the lives of so many people in need. Her gift leaves a legacy of hope for colon cancer advocates and survivors.
