Caitlinâ€™s first day of high school was August 27, 2012. That day, she was in so much pain that she ended up at the hospital where a tumor was discovered on her diaphragm. This was determined to be synovial sarcoma. After 3 months of chemo and surgery to remove the tumor, then more months of chemo, Caitlin was diagnosed with AML. Five months later, in August 2014, she received her bone marrow transplant. Caitlin continues to remain positive and strong, despite many obstacles including various infections and hospital stays. Her mother attends clinic appointments 3-4 times a week with Caitlin, which impedes her ability to work full time, since each appointment takes the entire day. Any financial assistance is greatly appreciated by Caitlin and her family.
