Carole Rodger was no different than most young girls. Growing up in Scotland in the early 70's she would dream of getting married to her prince, having two children, and living in her castle happily ever after. At the age of 17 she found her prince, eventually got married, had her two children, and moved into her castle, but then her world started to crumble around her. The one thing she dreaded throughout her whole childhood was forced upon her. . .being part of another broken family.
Determined to survive a failed marriage, she moved out of the family house to start a new life for herself and her two children. Until a medical scare derailed her only six months after her marriage ended. . .breast cancer.
Her unwavering desire and spirit to find true love, adventure, and to live life to its fullest persevered, and led her to the sport of mountain climbing. She eventually trained to climb the Matterhorn and was asked by a fellow climber if she'd like to go on a blind date, where she met her true prince, Sean. After a nine-month transatlantic relationship with this American, she got married in a Scottish Palace on Valentine's Day, honeymooned in Italy, and packed her bags, deciding to leave her beloved Scotland to relocate her children and herself to New York.
Once again back on track and living the life she'd always dreamt of, this time with her soul mate, the unthinkable happened. Carole was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer and she asked God, why me again? The emotional roller coaster she rode built an incredible strength of spirit and hope within her which was inspirational to others as she looked for ways to treat the disease.
How can something positive come out of such a story? Read on. . .
