My Story

We can't thank you enough for your thoughts, prayers and messages.

If you are so inclined, please consider making a tax deductible donation to www.maddiejamesfoundation.orgThere is no easy way to say this and I can't believe I am writing these words, but on January 16, 2011 our sweet Maddie was diagnosed with an inoperable, malignant brain tumor called DIPG. Our doctor has prepared us for the incurable and aggressive nature of the disease. We are talking months, with a rapid decrease in motor skills, ability to walk, etc within weeks.

We are beyond devastated and need to focus on making Maddie happy, for as long as we are blessed with the privilege of doing so. With that said, please understand if messages aren't returned right now. I can't tell you how much your support means to us, but there are just no words.
