From feet to wheels and back

I wish that this was a happier update , just to thank all of you for your support and kindness over the past 5 years, but unfortunately our daughter is fighting another huge battle. Caitlyn was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in August. The good news is that Hodgkin's is very curable, and we know ith Caitlyn's fighting spirit, she will overcome this too! The love and support she received from so many of you after her accident helped her to acheive so much. She was about to leave for Grad school in Scotland at the University of Glasgow when we got the diagnosis.She has deferred her acceptance until next September, and determined to fight this and be healthy enough to attend next year. As most of you know, with any life threatening illness or injury, there are many things not covered by insurance. Caitlyn only being 25, has had to go through fertilty treatments to ensure that she has the opportunity to have children in the future. The cost is astronomical and not covered by insurance at all. There are many other things not covered that she will need help with also, and since we've just started this journey, we aren't even sure what and how much she will need in the end. For those of you who have donated to Caitlyn in the past, and have helped her so much, please do not feel obligated to donate again. If you would just share this post with others that may be willing to help, we would greatly appreciate it. Thank you to each and every one of you who has helped her in the past, continue to help her now, and those that will help her in the future, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. God bless you all!!
