Caitlin’s family would like to once again thank everyone for their continued loving support and prayers at what is still a very difficult time.

Caitlin’s injuries are significant and she has a very long journey of healing and rehabilitation ahead of her.

She has now regained consciousness but is very much in the acute phase of her brain injury.

Caitlin is no longer in ICU and is now in a ward under the care of an amazing Neurology, Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation team at Perth Children’s Hospital.

We are also deeply grateful for the support provided in the short term by Ronald McDonald House.

Caitlin is young and strong in body and mind which puts her in good stead for the best recovery possible.

Anyone who has had the joy of knowing Caitlin can tell you she has the soul of a fighter and has never shied away from challenges in any aspect of her life.

BMX has never been just a sport to Caitlin but a passion. She was injured doing something she truly loves.

Caitlin has a beautiful and loving heart too and we know she would want anyone who witnessed her accident or has been affected by hearing of her injuries to please seek help if necessary.
