When cancer made Madison feel alone, a community stepped in to give her a special day.
Madison loves going to the mall with her friends. She loves spending that time with them and being a regular kid. When she was diagnosed with cancer, however, the fun days she remembered with her friends seemed further and further away. As she spent more and more days receiving treatments and more and more time in doctor’s offices, she felt drained and alone.
A wish restores normalcy in life
When the Make-A-Wish family came together to support her, however, she was able to spend a day at the mall shopping like a normal teenager. Throughout her shopping spree, Madison was amazed by the kindness of everyone she encountered, making her special day feel even more special. With the community rallying together to grant her wish, Madison felt restored. She now knows that no matter what obstacles may stand in her way, she will always have a support system at her side to fill her heart with warmth.
