THE STORY:

I am rasing money to help a precious little baby girl named Maddox Grace Atkinson, who is battling bladder cancer, and her family. The family is going to have to move from Asheville, NC to Jacksonville, FL for 8 weeks so little Maddie can undergo proton therapy (radiation). The family's only source of income is Sarah (Rosche) Atkinson,mom, who is a special educaton teacher. Maddie's father, Fatie Atkinson, was laid off from his job a few years ago and stays home with Maddie and her two older brothers. The boys are 5 and 3 years old and little Maddie is only 9 months old. She was diagnosed with bladder cancer at 6 weeks old. She has been undergoing grueling chemotherapy treatments and so far has had to endure 3 surgeries and atleat one more in her less than a year of life. Most people go through life with never having surgery. Mom does not have any sick days, she is new to her job and has to rely on FMLA. She will not be paid for her time in Jacksonville nor when she has to take time off of work for Maddie to undergo surgery to have the tumor removed. The family of 5 is set to move to Jacksonville sometime in November, will have to spend Christmas there, and away from their loved ones. They need to cover their living expenses in Jacksonville, as well as their living expenses in Asheville, and they have to board 3 dogs for 8 weeks. So let's come together and help this precious baby. Any amount of money you can offer to help little Maddie would be appreciated. You can read more about Maddie through a website called Caring Bridge.
