Club backs 'Safe Haven 4 Caitlin' campaign, invites family to Boxing Day fixture

15 December 2022

Cambridge United will welcome a local family who has had their life upended by the news that their young daughter, Caitlin, has been diagnosed with a terminal illness...

Caitlin Passey - who has tragically been diagnosed with Juvenile Batten Disease, will be Mascot for the Boxing Day game against Shrewsbury Town, alongside her brother, Oliver.

Juvenile Batten Disease is a terminal neurological disease that has no cure or treatment. Rapid vision loss is the first symptom, followed by childhood dementia, seizures, loss of motor and language skills.

The family are aiming to raise the funds in-order to adapt their home and provide a 'Safe Haven for Caitlin'. Significant investment is required and we urge our supporters to show their support.

The whole family has been invited to this year's Boxing Day fixture, where they will be treated to our Hospitality offering in the Layrd Design Lounge. First Team players will wear 'SafeHaven4Caitlin' warm-up shirts, which will be signed and auctioned off in aid of the campaign.
