Kaitlyn is a 15-year-old girl from Holly Springs. She is a fun-loving girl who lives with Cerebral Palsy, seizure disorder and vasomotor instability. We thought Kaitlyn could use a pick me up!
Kaitlyn loves the movie Toy Story. She is fanatical about Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Randy Newman (who does all the music for the songs). Her daily music play list consists of 4 Randy Newman songs from the movie. It just so happened that Randy Newman was coming to the Carolina Theatre.
Meg’s Smile Foundation provided Kaitlyn and her family with special VIP seats to the concert. In addition, Kaitlyn also got to go backstage and meet Randy Newman! Kaitlyn’s family would go on to say that Mr. Newman was moved by Kaitlyn’s love of his music. He even joked around with her after his performance and signed a poster especially for her.
A very special thank you to Carolina Theatre as well as the Tibbet family for making this very special night for Kaitlyn and her family come true.
