This site began in April 2017, when our then two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Maddie, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Our family made a commitment that day – to cherish the daily miracles that Maddie’s journey would bring. What we didn’t realize was how many miracles Maddie would ultimately bless us with.
Although Maddie’s battle with cancer ended all too soon, her beautiful spirit lives on in these online pages as well as in her inspirational book, Maddie’s Miracles: A Book of Life. The author royalties from Maddie’s beautiful book have been used to help “Shine Maddie’s Light” in the world around us. Through raising cancer awareness, donations to charity, or other efforts of love and inspiration, we are dedicated to leaving this world a better place in honor of our little hero. In 2018, we founded Dancing While Cancering, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in Maddie’s honor. Dancing While Cancering has one sole and beautiful mission: to bring joy to the inpatient hospital experience for children with cancer. You can learn more about Dancing While Cancering by visiting dancingwhilecancering.org.
Our family will continue to honor Maddie in our words, our blog posts, our actions, and our commitments. Thank you, Maddie, for providing us endless light within the darkness. And thank you to Team Maddie for providing us with the support to keep moving forward on our journey. May we all continue to draw strength and inspiration from Maddie’s life story and her endless miracles.
Team Maddie Forever,
The Kramer Family
