Caitlin was born with a genetic immune
deficiency, making her more vulnerable to the deadly disease. She was diagnosed
with coronavirus earlier this month.
Caitlin went into quarantine at her sister’s
house and had reportedly only experienced minor symptoms.
Caitlin was the youngest of five children,
described by her parents as a “kind, quiet, loving, a wonderful child.”
While the disease is usually less dangerous in
younger people, it can also cause serious complications - particularly those
with underlying health conditions.
