My name is Caroline Cox. I am 17 years old and a senior at Marlborough School. I have always been an athlete, and was going through the college recruiting process for volleyball when I started having pain near my stomach right before my Junior year. My pain has been an unrelentingly difficult and frustrating journey, but I have learned just how strong I am. Every doctor thinks they know the cause and can help, but when their ideas end up not working, they pass me on to the next. So far only the Zeltzers have really understood what I am going through. I have tried medicines, surgery, acupuncture, injections and just about everything else you can imagine to make my pain go away. I am honored to serve on the CHYP Advisory Board both to provide support to others and to learn more from my peers.
