Starting in Spring of 2017, Carlynn began experiencing some pain in her lower back and hips. This pain led her to the doctor who sent her to Physical Therapy. On May 5th, she was in a car accident that exacerbated her pain in her right hip. After the pain continued to get worse in her hip and multiple visits with her doctor, she was sent in for some tests involving her kidneys on June 30th, 2017. Through those scans, it was discovered that she had tumors on both kidneys and pressing on her spine. She was sent home and an appointment with a urologist was made for the following Friday, July 7th. On Thursday, July 6th, after several days of decline, her husband, David, and son, Nathan, had her admitted to the Hospital in Searcy, Arkansas where the Anguishes live.
