Caitlin was actively listed for a lung transplant on April 24, 2014. We were ready, expectant, full of hope.
She kept herself strong and she kept herself busy.
She was grateful.
She had plans.
We never, ever expected that she would have to wait 2 1/2 years. But when she went into the hospital for the last time, with her high score, she was told that offers were coming in. We figured it would happen any moment. We were excited and lighthearted, and on the night of November 20, she asked me to push her chair through the hospital as fast as I could, to music.
In a just world, she would still be with us.
Spread the word, far and wide.
