Go the Distance for Cincinnati Children's 2019

Sweet Caroline

Our daughter Caroline was born October 6th, 2016 with an unknown lung disease, and despite the amazing care she received at Cincinnati Children's, passed away October 30th. We found soon after Caroline’s passing that she had congenital alveolar dysplasia, an exceedingly rare condition in which her lungs stopped developing at a microscopic level around 15 weeks of gestation.

After Caroline’s passing it became our goal to honor her in a meaningful way. We set up the Caroline Clay Vitale Memorial Fund hoping to make this possible. The fund supports research and aid for families of other infants with ‘orphan’ or rare diseases which are currently underfunded.  

We are walking for Caroline's fund for the THIRD year - please join us in supporting her team and the Caroline Clay Vitale Memorial Fund!
