Story

Madelyn
Maddy was born a happy healthy baby girl November 27th 2007. She wasn't diagnosed until she was 5 years old on October 20th 2013. She had become very ill very quickly, we took her to local hospital and they flew her out to Children's Hospital in Santa Barbara. She was diagnosed A.L.L. she started receiving chemotherapy right away she got very ill as soon as they started and her difficulties started right away. She kept going through chemotherapy getting every side effect possible and continuously struggling with feeling okay. In June of 2014 she got a very bad infection and ended up being in a coma for 15 days she had to learn how to walk and talk and be human all over again. She's very strong and she continues to amaze me every day.
