She will then receive a bone marrow transplant. She will be staying in Rochester for approximately 3-4 months. Caitlin is 15 years old and a sophomore at Stephenson High School.  Please join them for food, drinkis, fun, raffles, kids’ raffles, 50/50s and a live auction! $20 donation and children 12 and under free.
