It has been almost a year since Caitie’s passing, and her parents are celebrating a new birth.
What started as insect bites that turned into lesions has become an onslaught of life-threatening symptoms for Courageous Caitie: low count of platelets and red blood cells, an enlarged spleen, blood in her stool, and more.
After numerous tests, scans, and medical procedures, 3-year-old Caitlin Soleil Lucas was diagnosed with a rare disease called juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML), a rare cancer of the blood affecting infants and toddlers. The medical expenses were no joke, and so her parents sought help through social media. That was when Caitie’s story began to reach hundreds of thousands of people.
But on March 31 last year, Caitie let out her last breath and lost her battle against cancer.
Though her parents are still grieving for their daughter, a new miracle gave them hope—and this coincidence made them realize that Caitie continues to watch over them.
On February 14, 2017 at 11:25 a.m., Caitie’s parents Feliz and Jayjay Lucas welcomed a new baby daughter—and they are ecstatic. However, Feliz pointed out another miracle: their new daughter was born at the exact same time when Caitie passed away.
We would like to congratulate the couple with their new miracle!
