Five-year-old Madelynn of Jewitt City loves playing outside. For as long she can remember, she has enjoyed playing in the sand, enjoying time with her cat, and spending time her family outside in the sun! Madelynn has battled a life-threatening medical condition that has taken her away from her favorite activities, and replaced them with constant trips to the doctor’s office and countless medical treatments. But Madelynn endures her struggles with a smile on her face and a sense of determination that her family views with awe and pride.
Maddy is getting stronger every day, and with her new-found strength she is beginning to make more friends and finding more opportunities to play outside – her favorite place to be. So it was no surprise that Maddy’s one true wish was for a Playscape in her family’s backyard that she could call her own!
Having her own Playscape would give Maddy a sense of excitement on a daily basis that helps her not only to enjoy being a kid, but also plays a critical role in her cognitive and physical development, which is at an important milestone. It is a wish that Maddy will be able to enjoy with her family and with her new friends for years to come – truly a wish that keeps on giving.
Maddy’s parents have shared that the gift of a wish – Maddy’s own Playscape – is a life-changing opportunity for her as she continues to grow and create lifelong memories filled with hope, strength and joy.
