Madison’s Story

Story told by her mom.

It started out like just another day one year ago this day Sept 22nd. Madison got up for school and got ready and rode the bus to school. That night we did homework and ate dinner. Little did I know that her body was fighting to work right.  She went to take her shower. She sat down on the bathroom floor and has not been able to stand on her own since without being in a stander. After spending hours in the hospital we were told she has what’s called Transverse MYELITIS. Never would I have thought my daughter wouldn’t be able to walk or use the restroom on her own. All though this child has been though a ton this year already and we still have a long road ahead she hasn’t let it get her down. She is one of the happiest kids. She has made some great friends and has found new things she loves to do. She is an amazing kid. I’m so blessed to call her my daughter.  It’s hard to believe it’s only been One year though lol. I will never forget this date. (The day our lives changed forever) Then of all days of the year we found out today that her MRI that was done on Friday shows a growing cyst on the brain. When telling her she is going to start seeing another doctor next week and telling her why, she said it ok I’ve come this far. She’s truly amazing.
