Madison has NF1 just like me! It was such a great experience to work with this sweet little girl. She is so vivacious and resilient, just being around her is inspiring. My favorite thing about her is her desire to bring people together, to laugh, to play and to be friends. My favorite example of this is when I bumped into her with her sister and dad at a local store. While her dad and I were talking she took all of our hands and placed them in the hand of the person next to us. So in the end the four of us were holding hands in a circle. This desire she has for friendship, love and laughter is so refreshing. She has a freedom to love without her body’s ailments, her tumors or her pain restricting her. I think we all can learn great life changing things from her.
