About Carrie
Carrie, 29 was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) in January 2007. PH causes the pulmonary artery to become enlarged which then restricts the blood supply to lungs and oxygen to the heart.

Recently she had surgery to install a subcutaneous pump which gives her constant medication. This is the last option before a heart and lung transplant is needed. Normal daily activities we take for granted, Carrie can no longer perform. She is on oxygen 24/7. She is unable to work and her husband, Joe, needs to be home to care for their family and to transport Carrie to weekly appointments at Abbott Heart Hospital and countless other trips to Lakeview Clinic.

Carrie and Joe have 3 children, Hailey, 12, Raeven, 7, and a six-month old baby, Montana. They moved to NYA in 1998 and since then Carrie has been an active volunteer at school, community food shelf, and her church. For several years she helped make the Sunday evening "Backroom" at the Pizza Ranch a popular activity for NYA youth and helped organize "Party at the Park" and the annual city wide "free garage sale". The Petersons are currently caretakers at the Poplar Ridge Apts.
