    "Caelynn's Unicorn Special" was picked and named by Caelynn herself!  It is a beautiful sea foam green with sparkle!   Caelynn's story is below: 

    When Caelynn was 3 years old she was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma (bone cancer) in the left femur back September/2013.  She endured 1 year of chemotherapy and radiation and was found to be NED (No Evidence of Disease).  We knew she may have stunted growth in the femur because of the radiation she received and after only a few months the leg discrepancy began to be noticeable to where she needed shoe lifts to accommodate the difference in her leg length.  She also began having many fractures in the left leg and had a total of 10 casts throughout the following 4 years.  Caelynn always knew an amputation was a big possibility because of the radiation damaged caused to her femur bone.  A couple times we were able to save her leg with alternative treatments but back in April/2018 she suffered a fall at school that broke her femur straight through.  She was in unbearable pain and was again placed in another cast. We knew there was a big possibility that this fracture would not heal because it was exactly in the area where she received the most radiation.  Sure enough 6 weeks after being placed in a cast we were told there wasn't any healing going on.  We continued to talk to Caelynn about an amputation and the other option to try to save her leg if we tried an alternative treatment.  Being that she was now 8 years old we felt we needed to let her have a say on what she wanted to do for her future.  We explained both options in detail and told her to think about it and let us know what she felt would be best for her.  It didn't take long for her to decide and after about a day of her thinking about it she let us know she wanted an amputation.  Her reasoning behind this decision was simple to her and she explained the following to us:  She stated she was tired of all of the limitations she had and she was so tired of all the breaks that had caused her so much pain and suffering.  She also said that she was tired of us always being after her telling her not run, jump, skip, or climb.  The last thing she said was that she wanted to be able to just go into a store and pick out a pair of shoes without having to wait to put a lift on them.  Her exact words were, "I will finally be able to wear normal shoes."  We chose to respect her wishes and after seeing all of her suffering we also felt this was the best option for her in order to be able to get her running and just back to normal again.  We informed her orthopedic of her decision and on Wednesday July 11, 2018 Caelynn had her amputation.  She is doing amazing and is coping like a true champion.  She hasn't gotten her prosthetic leg yet but by the way everything is healing it looks like she will be fitted for her prosthetic August 9, 2018 and hopefully get her leg one month from then.  We are looking forward to her future and for her to finally be able to enjoy her childhood without so many set backs.
