GREENSBORO, N.C. — Caitlin Little, the Greensboro teen who has been living with anterograde amnesia since a sports accident in 2017, joined us on FOX8 for the latest word after a trip to Texas looking for answers.
On Oct. 12, 2017, Caitlin was at practice with her Southeast Guilford High School cross country team when she was accidentally hit in the head by another student.
Since then, much like the movie “50 First Dates,” Caitlin wakes up every morning thinking it is the day after the accident.
She can remember what happens throughout the course of any given day, but at night, as she sleeps, her brain resets and seemingly erases her memories of the previous day.
A Texas doctor says she may be able to get her memory back.
“From the trip we just took, this doctor is extremely hopeful that in the next few weeks she’s going to start holding memories,” her mother Jennifer said.
On April 26, Caitlin’s father Chris said that the Dallas-area doctor practices integrative medicine with detoxing and nutrition as its cornerstone. He is also a licensed ophthalmological surgeon.
Caitlin and her family also spoke with Dr. Oz in an interview set to air Monday at about 2 p.m. Her family says Caitlin spoke from the heart as the family shared their story.
FOX8 has been covering Caitlin’s road to recovery with a series of stories and podcast episodes.
