rsz_childrens_national_medical_system_garrett_madison_photo1.jpgFrom a very early age, Madison "Maddy" possessed a very strong character and brought lots of laughter and smiles to just about everyone that she met. At the age of 3, Madison embarked on a life changing journey that was also beyond her years, a battle with cancer. After a series of tests she was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma. Further bone scans revealed that the cancer was not only in her abdomen, but also in her lower spine, her shoulders and her hips and she was given only a 30 percent chance at survival.
