May is for Maddy!

Maddy’s journey began December 2011, when she saw a doctor for chronic fatigue. A visit to the doctor ruled out mono, and after additional testing she was diagnosed with anemia. After months of taking iron supplements and eating iron enriched foods, her hemoglobin was still far too low. In February, she was admitted to the hospital for a blood transfusion and discharged with many follow up instructions. Over the next couple of weeks she had several different tests done including a chest x ray that detected a suspicious mass. After a painful biopsy, the family was told the devastating news. Maddy’s diagnosis of anemia was in fact Hodgkins Lymphoma. She began her chemotherapy on March 30, 2012. Maddy has been very courageous through the entire process. This 17 year old girl has been through more in the last 3 months than most of us have in our lifetime, but her spirits are high and with our support we can help keep it going!

Many of you have asked how you can help and it is very much appreciated. Our hope is that we alleviate some of that financial burden so the family can focus all of their energy and strength on winning this battle! We have the power today through technology and social media to reach thousands of people. Please pass this on to anyone you know that might like to help this family. Every donation counts, no matter how big or small!

On Saturday, June 9, 2012 there will be a fundraiser at Overtyme Grill in Waterford from 5pm-9pm.

We have no doubt that Maddy WILL beat this! Your continued thoughts and prayers are always welcome and much appreciated!
