Caroline is a charismatic 16-year-old who enjoys art, music, and socializing with her friends. When she was 9 years old, Caroline was diagnosed with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, a form of muscular dystrophy that causes severe muscle weakness, especially in the shoulders and hips. Concerns with physical stamina and speed brought the family to Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU where she was subsequently diagnosed and continues to be followed through the muscular dystrophy clinic. At age 14, Caroline began usisng a power wheelchair due to muscle weakness and difficulty walking with this disease. This wheelchair helps Caroline to keep up with her friends. The children's hospital has made a difficult situation as easy as possible on Caroline and her family, saving them time and energy by offering a "one-stop-shop" where Caroline can see all the specialists necessary to keep her disease under control. With the free time Caroline saves by seeing all her doctors in one clinic, she enjoys socializing with her older brother and their two dogs.
