Her precious gift is the Present: Manatee woman struggles with arthritis

On a good day Erica Carter will walk the dogs and tackle something on her to-do list. The dishes, maybe. A trip to the grocery store. She’ll take one of her grandmothers to lunch. She’ll visit family. She’ll spend time with her nieces and nephews. “A good day is when I wake up and I don’t feel that horrible,” Carter said.
