findingjoyeverywhere #LightTheNight's "Why We Walk Wednesday" presents 2014 Honored Hero, Caitlin Lyle!! ‪#‎whywewalkOCIE
In April, Caitlin and her mother, Kilty, attended a routine doctor check up and Caitlin was asked for blood work. The next day, their doctor called to inform them that her blood work was abnormal. Caitlin was referred to a #hematologist who thought that her low white blood cell count (WBC) was due to an antibiotic she was on. He didn’t believe it was #cancer and said that her counts should rise within the next week. After numerous blood draws, there was no improvement in Caitlin’s WBC and her platelets continued to slowly drop.
For over a month, Caitlin had a nagging cough. Her mother took her to her primary doctor who found that Caitlin had an ear infection and prescribed her an antibiotic for it. Before she started taking the antibiotic, her mom suggested she get her blood drawn so there was no medication to lower her counts. At midnight that night, the lab called to inform Caitlin’s parents that her counts were very low and that she needed to see her hematologist.
On July 1st, Caitlin’s doctor performed the bone marrow #biopsy. A few hours after the procedure, he called to inform her that her test came back highly suspicious of #leukemia. She was admitted that night and they confirmed her diagnosis the next day. On July 3rd, Caitlin received her PICC line and started #chemo that night. Through her treatments, Caitlin managed to stay positive, outgoing, and active, despite her friends leaving for college and her having to stay in the hospital.
Caitlin turned eighteen in October during her third treatment. After Caitlin finished all of her treatments, her counts slowly began to move up and she continues doing activities with her family and friends. Besides visiting the hospital for blood tests and doctor visits, Caitlin has been doing great and continues to #thrive.
I am honored to be a part of #LLS and Light The Night so I can help them help more people like Caitlin! Please see my profile page for a direct link to donate!

marsthegreat Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life. No longer am I an intern, a temp, or a free agent. I am officially a full-time Graphic Designer as of this morning.

This is something I've been working towards since middle school. Every sleepless night, every botched freelance contract, every successful logo & website design over the past TEN YEARS has been leading up to this moment. I'm SO filled with joy & gratitude because the day is finally here.

Even got my moniker on my nameplate so they know it's real 😎 Even still, I'd give anything to be able to share this moment with my dad right now. #marsthegreat #marsthegawd #freshstart #beentrill #nevergiveup #neverletup #onlythestart #thisoneisforyouPop #LightTheNight #BigWillieStyle #fuckcancer
