At Christmas we shared Caitlin’s story with you.
Caitlin has been blind since birth due to a condition called Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis. Almost ten years ago, her life was changed forever when she received Guide Dog ‘Kally’ just in time for Christmas.
Caitlin is a perfect example of how a Guide Dog can empower someone to overcome obstacles, enjoy life and achieve their dreams. She seized the newfound opportunity to venture out spontaneously and relished simply being able to get on with the day.
When it was time for ‘Kally’ to retire last year, we were able to place Guide Dog ‘Devyn’ with Caitlin thanks to the generosity of the community.
Thanks to your overwhelming support at Christmas, we will be able to match more blind and vision impaired Queenslanders with life-changing Guide Dogs like ‘Kally’ and ‘Devyn’ in 2016 to give people like Caitlin the mobility, independence and confidence they need to achieve their goals.
From all of us at Guide Dogs Queensland, thank you.
