Maddie’s Toy Fundraiser

My daughter Maddie was attacked by a dog on September 3, 2020. She was 6 years old at the time of the injury. It was a miracle that she survived her attack. She was admitted to Avera McKennan Hospital PICU for overnight hospitalization due to the extent of her injuries. We are continuing with plastic surgery and reconstruction at Kansas University Medical Center. Instead of using our campaign for medical and travel expenses, we wanted to give back to the pediatric units at Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls and KU Medical Center in Kansas City for their amazing care to her. All the money raised with be used to buy toys for the kids in both hospitals.
