Please help Caitlyn and her family get through this difficult time.

My little niece, 3yr old Caitlyn "Firecracker" Voellmecke is fighting Lymphoma at Cincinnati Children's hospital. She is undergoing chemotherapy there for the next 2 years.

Caitlyn has come to be known as "Firecracker" by the wonderful staff as she is quite spirited and expressive about how she feels about being in and out of the hospital, getting poked and prodded. Caitlyn's mom is with her 24/7 while her dad is juggling the resposibilities at home and work and taking care of Caitlyn's two brothers.

Caitlyn has a form of lymphoma for wich she will be undergoing an agressive chemotherapy regimen. Caitlyn has now begun stage 2 of her chemotherapy and is able to spend time at home with her brothers and mom and dad but makes frequent visits to the hospital for blood work, tests and chemo treatments.

At this point we have no idea what expenses will be covered or not but Caitlyn's family will definitly need some help. Any funds raised here and not used for related expenses will be passed on to Cincinatti Children's Hospital or Ronald McDonald House.

Please give what you can and share this site with everyone you know. The links above make it easy to share this site so please help us out and pass it along.
