My Story…

Maddie was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in April 2017. Tests , scans, biopsys, Hickman lines, countless needles , blood transfusions, Intense chemotherapy began straight away to start attacking the tumuor that was now taking over her body.
You can read more of Maddie’s story here https://run2cure.org.au/our-heroes/superheroes/madisons-story-2018
This year In true Maddie spirit, Maddie wants to be like her big brother Levi and run the Little Heroes 1K walk!!!
Maddie has had 3 clear scans Oct, Dec 2018 and April 2019. Her scans continue every three months and now monthly check ups and daily treatment whilst she is still recovering from the side affects from treatment. We can finally say she is ‘doing well’ however this is not the case for every child diagnosed with Neuroblastoma....sadly 50% don't survive to 5 years old.
This isn't good enough.
We need better treatments with less risk and side affects.
We need a cure - the thought that it could come back is suffocating.

Donate to help Madison raise money for RUN2CURE NEUROBLASTOMA 2019’s fundraising campaign.
