Carolyn Byington, 26, was a beloved patient of Dr. Mark Souweidane. He successfully treated her for chiari malformation in 2008, and he remembers her and her family fondly to this day. Carolyn tragically passed away on June 10, and her family would like to support Dr. Souweidane’s research in her memory.
“We want the last chapter of Carolyn’s life to be one where her friends and loved ones can help others in her memory. Carolyn was a true philanthropist who was active in many charitable organizations, and we know she would have wanted to help other children under Dr. Souweidane’s care by supporting his research,” said Carolyn’s mother, Jennifer Byington.
