Cailee's Sightseeing Bucket List
At 3 Cailee started early intervention and began learning how to use a cane with an orientation and mobility instructor. At 4, Cailee began learning Braille and has loved learning the tactile side of life!
We have realized through her struggles and in our conversations with the Doctors and Specialist how important her memory recognition is and will be in her future. For this reason we have created **CAILEE'S SIGHTSEEING BUCKET LIST**
We are building Cailee's memory bank with as many activities as we can before she loses any more vision. I was fortunate enough to have a very special friend who lost her vision recently explain to me that "it's not dark, because of her memories her brain recalls images and I 'see' quite well".... This made me even more determined to give her as many experiences and make as many memories as possible. One place every princess deserves to go explore is Disneyland, Cailee has been dreaming of meeting Bell and Snow White!
Catrina Frost, Cailee's mother, from Phoenix Arizona plans to use the generous donations to give Cailee the experices of a lifetime through day trips, vacations, special events, classes and opportunities to ensure Cailee will have the memories she can take with her forever!
Candice Frost, Cailee's Grandmother is dedicated to overseeing the GoFundMe Campaign and pass any messages on to Catrina.
Thank you for your support, love, encouarging words!

￼*some of the items are for life skills development as well as for memories.
Her amazing attitude and can do spirit has gotten her through so much...
Over the summer Cailee did a ton of swimming with her brothers, attended the Lake Pleasant Lantern Festival, went camping in Big Bear, made several trips to the beach in California and the biggest news is met her partner in crime Arthur.
Arthur is a standard poodle and training to be Cailee’s service animal. He came to live with us at 4 months and has bonded with her so sweetly! It’s truly amazing to watch these two work together!
