The Caitlyn Ann Trust was established by Mike and Wendy Hobley after the sudden and unexplained death of their 3 year old daughter Caitlyn, at 1:40 am on Sunday, 30th July 2000. Caitlyn was admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital for Children six hours earlier and was seen by a doctor at 10:00 am the previous day and sent home.
Caitlyn had been a perfectly healthy child until 36 hours before her sudden death. Subsequent tests and post mortem have failed to explain her death and a diagnosis of ‘undetermined’ was recorded and remains today.
As a result of this experience Mike and Wendy Hobley established the Caitlyn Ann trust to raise funds for research into sudden infant deaths and to support the families of those affected. Since that time Mike and Wendy have discovered many similar families who have lost children without any detectable medical reason. Mike and Wendy believe that action is needed to find an answer to these tragic deaths.
The Caitlyn Anne donation fund supports these initiatives and assists those affected.
