 KITTERY POINT, ME
Catalina is Pokémon’s biggest fan! Catalina is a 9 year-old, soon to be 10 year-old, third grade student at Mitchell School, who has a genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome in conjunction with Pierre-Robbin Sequence.
Right now there is a lesion on her spinal cord that has impacted her breathing and movement. As a result, she has been in Boston's Children's Hospital since mid-December. She is too weak for the surgery, so doctors and staff at Children's are building up her strength so that she can withstand the necessary surgery sometime next month.

Her parents are traveling back and forth from Kittery, Maine to Boston to support her and care for the rest of their family. Dad is self-employed and missing work to be with his daughter.
We are hoping to raise funds to help pay for their travel, home expenses and mortgage during this time. We also hope to raise enough money to get her a much-needed wheelchair. Please help us to help Catalina!!!
