Carolyn Lindner

Carolyn Lindner was born and raised in Winnipeg. She received degrees in Psychology(1997) and Education(2001) from the University of Winnipeg and went on to become a Special Education teacher in Winnipeg's inner city. As a wife, mother and respected professional, Carolyn had always lived her life with intention - active, involved, and always up for new challenges. However, life took a dramatic turn when in 2012, at the age of 40, Carolyn contracted a virulent strain of pneumonia so severe that she was put into an induced coma, placed on life support, and given only a 10% chance of survival. Yet, despite all odds she survived. Two and a half months later she awoke from her coma, and the journey of recovery began as she consciously fought for her life. Carolyn, who faced death multiple times, figured out how to fight back and in record time got herself out of the ICU. Within a matter of weeks she relearned how to breathe, talk, eat, and speak again. But survival came at a cost: She walked out of the hospital on prosthetic legs, and with a damaged lung.

With a fierce desire to reclaim her life, Carolyn learned very quickly how to let go of the old and embrace the new. And although there have been changes, she has successfully resumed her role as wife and mother and active member of the community, living life with intention and to its fullest.

"I always knew that I was strong but learned that you don't know how strong you are until you're forced to find that inner reserve and to use it."
