My Story

Madelyn was diagnosed with orbital rhabdomyosarcoma a month before her 7th birthday. After undergoing 4 surgeries, chemo therapy and radiation therapy, she is cancer free and in remission! She has oncology visits and scans every 4 months. Madelyn is a very loving, funny and out-going little girl. She loves animals, webkinz and pasta! She wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. Madelyn has been an inspiration to all those around her! She has unbelievable strength, courage and spirit! She never complains and faces each new challenge with a positive outlook and humor. You can always find her smiling and laughing. She is beautiful! She is our hero! We love you Maddie!
