My Story

Welcome to my CaringBridge site. I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) type 1. I created this to keep my friends and family updated about me. My Story is a little introduction about me. Be sure to read my journal, view my pictures, and MAKE SURE YOU WRITE ME A NOTE IN MY GUESTBOOK!
I'd like to know that you were here and it would make me SMILE! HUGS!

Hi! My name is Madison Rose Reed. I was born on February 4th, 1997. I am 14 years old now. I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) type 1. I could have died at 2 years old but I didn't. My parents gave me a chance to live and didn't listen to most of the doctors. I have a feeding tube because I can't swallow. I use a bipap machine at night and sometimes all the time when I'm sick. My muscles don't work right- they are weak and floppy. My brain is normal though.  I'm just like other kids.

I like to sing. 
I LOVE the band & Nick show Big Time Rush! I also like the band New Hollow. Some of my other favorite singers are Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Raven and Ally and AJ.   

I like to do the computer especially virtual worlds like VFK (Virtual Family Kingdom), MVK (My Virtual Kingdom) & SmallWorlds. My favorite & the BEST virtual world is VMK or Virtual Magic Kingdom! Disney closed VMK down and I want it back! There is NO other game like it! I do alot of Nancy Drew computer games too.

I like to watch BIG TIME RUSH, American Idol, America's Next Top Model, Dancing With The Stars, Top Chef, and lots of other shows on BRAVO, DISNEY, HGTV, and Nickelodeon.

I will write about all of this stuff here on my own blog. I decided to create my own blog now so you can see that I'm just like other kids.I have the same thoughts and feelings but I just can't move and do the same things other kids can do.   You can visit my other web site too at
