When Freddie learned a kidney transplant could help his little sister, Caitlin was too small...

Now Caitlin Can is based on a true story. The brightly colored paper and fabric illustrations show the daily life of a family caring for their little girl. Share Caitlin's ups and downs as her dreams for a normal life come true--thanks to a very special gift.
