Girl Losing Vision Gets To Meet The Pope

Cailee, a precious six-year-old girl, is losing her sight.

She has a rare disease called familial exudative vitreoretinopathy, or FEVR for short, and she has struggled with it for four years and through five surgeries.

According to her Gofundme page, she is learning how to read Braille, walk with a cane and cope with her degenerating eyesight.

Her mother, Catrina Frost, has a plan to make her life a little bit happier while she struggles. She wants to take her daughter on the most epic sight-seeing trip of all time.

Together they are building the ultimate bucket list of things Cailee has to see before she permanently loses her vision.

"We are building Cailee's memory bank with as many activities as we can before she loses any more vision," Catrina explains on the Gofundme page.

She said a friend who had lost her vision said her mind stays vivid because her brain recalls image, and that way she can 'see' quite well.

"This made me even more determined to give her as many experiences and make as many memories as possible."

So far, Cailee has seen Belle at Disney World and the ocean at the beach.

Catrina talked about some of the other things she wants Cailee to see.

"New York during Fashion week! The symphony would be a magical experience considering Cailee's love for music. Cooking classes, Art classes, The Redwoods, and the best.... The hot air balloon festival in New Mexico."

To make Cailee's memories as beautiful as possible, donate to her Gofundme page.
