I can't believe I have know this young woman for almost 15 years. I worked with Lois (Karly's mom) for seven years at Wilder Forest and became close friends during that time. Karly was diagnosed with RET Syndrome many years ago. It has been a long hard road for their family. Karly is 24 years old now and continues to live in the loving care of her mother and step-father. Despite her diagnosis, Karly has found a way to communicate with a keyboard. She shares her story through poetry, her blog, public speaking events and through composing her own music. They are stong folks, and I just wanted to share their story with everyone. Recently Karly was on the evening news. I finally got to see it. If you click below, you'll connect to the Fox News story.
