My Story

Caitlyn was diagnosed with a high grade neuroepithelial brain tumor in December of 2015. She underwent an emergency brain surgery to remove most of the tumor and then she endured daily radiation and chemotherapy. Treatments were unsuccessful and Caitlyn passed away one year later. Caitlyn was our little princess and she dreamed of having hair like Rapunzel! She loved to play dress up and enjoyed anything pink and girly! We miss her terribly but we know she is in a better place.More than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. Thank you for your support.
