Maddie’s Fight Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated and determined to provide support to children and their families battling cancer, as well as, giving financial support for the research of Osteosarcoma.
Maddie’s Fight Foundation’s story:
In May of 2016 Madison Lane Demers was diagnosed with an extremely rare bone cancer, Multi-centric Osteogenic Sarcoma. Maddie had tumors on every bone in her body. Maddie put up an incredible fight. We flew her from her home state of Florida to Cleveland Clinic in Ohio where her amazing doctor, Dr. Pete Anderson was. Maddie rallied and made history books with her treatments. On January 5th 2017 her body was tired and she passed away.
When Maddie first was diagnosed we talked about spreading awareness and helping other children who are fighting this disease. We always talked about when she was better starting a foundation to help the families in need of financial support during these difficult times. Maddie would write to others battling cancer on social media and tell them to stay strong. She was always worried about others and I know this foundation is what she would want her name on.
Treatments for osteosarcoma are over 30 years old. This needs to change. One dollar at a time Maddie’s Fight Foundation would like to help in this crusade. As well as funding children and families fighting cancer, we would like to raise money for osteosarcoma research and get new treatments.
