Mariah Carver Update

It's been a month and a half since 9 year old Mariah Carver was mauled by her neighbor's five bulldogs.

She has been recovering at the Children's Hospital in Birmingham.

Tomorrow, she is being transported to Shriner's Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio where a team of doctors will continue to rebuild her body.

Mariah hasn't been home since the incident, and with the holidays passing and a new year beginning, Mariah was missed at home.

Lots of toys and gifts from classmates, teachers even strangers have been sent to the carver's house in Hartford.

The cost of the hospital stay alone is about one million dollars.

A fund was set up at City Bank of Hartford to help the family with expenses.

If you would like to help, you can call the bank at 1-800-435-2074.

    the owners of the dogs are helping all they can!!!!!!!!!!!! people are so judgemental; you shouldn't judge others unless you've been exactly where they are!!! no one is to blame because it was a tragic accident;

    I belive in helping,and supporting the cause. BUT ! I also belive the owner of the dogs should be getting the medical bills.
