Happy 3rd Birthday Madyn!
This sweet little girl turns 3 today. For this birthday she celebrated with parties, presents and a trip to Monterey Bay Aquarium. Her parents are trying to make her birthday as "normal" as possible, but she continues to take her medication and struggle with side effects. For those of you who don't know Madyn, she was diagnosed with leukemia just 3 months shy of her 2nd birthday.
This past year has been a whirlwind for her family and one that they haven't taken lightly. They hit the ground running taking care of their little Madyn and their other daughter, 6 year old Leila. They have researched, asked questions, fought and are continuing to fight for a cure. They do it for their daughter, for their friends who have lost their fight, the friends that continue to fight and the ones who have not been diagnosed yet.
This is real and no one is immune. It might not be your child today, but it could be tomorrow.
Fight with us as we raise money for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I am asking, in honor of Madyn's 3rd birthday for everyone to go Here and donate just $3.00. Then tell your friends, family and co-workers to join you in donating. So that one day, we will find a cure. This may not be a lot to many but for a family fighting for a cure, it's the world.
