Maddie’s Medical Expenses

$7,665 of $9,000 goal

Raised by 69 people in 6 months
Created December 5, 2018
Maddie is my beautiful niece. She is 14 and was recently diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. It is a very rare and aggressive form of cancer.  When found, her cancer had already spread to several locations.  She is facing 14 weeks of chemo followed by 6 weeks of radiation. She is a strong young woman with a heart of gold. The night before chemo, she generously cut her long hair to donate to children who need wigs. 

Maddie is being treated at St. Mary’s in Rochester but she lives in Eau Claire. Her mom, Sarah, will be with Maddie as much as possible and will obviously be missing a lot of work to support Maddie in her fight against cancer.  Sarah will have extra travel and lodging expenses and of course medical bills to pay as well, in addition to her usual monthly bills. 

Maddie’s family is rallying around her and helping as much as possible. Any donations are so greatly appreciated, as well as prayers. Thank you.

In the interest of transparency, I am setting up my sister, Julie Boese, to withdraw the funds and pay Sarah’s bills/expenses on her behalf. Sarah has enough to juggle and we felt it would be helpful if Julie could assist by taking care of expenses.

I’m excited to share some positive news! Maddie’s recent PET scan has shown that every tumor is shrinking! Although we are all overjoyed at this news, she still has a long way to go. She has completed 6 rounds of chemo, with 9 more to go and radiation will start with round 7 of chemo.

We are having a benefit for Maddie and her family this weekend, on Sunday from 3-7 at the Eagle’s club in Chippewa Falls. Our fingers are crossed that the weather cooperates.

Thank you to all of you for your thoughts, prayers and support of Maddie!

We have now organized a benefit for Maddie and her family. On March 10th at the Eagle’s Club in Chippewa Falls, we will be having a silent auction, raffle, 50/50 raffle and spaghetti dinner. We are starting to receive some great donations, so please feel free to join us at 3pm!

Maddie has just finished her 3rd round of chemo. She is such a trooper but this round brought more nausea than previous rounds. She goes to school for small amounts of time, when she can. Her Doctor felt her tumor and said it has shrunk so we are optimistic that the chemo is doing it’s job.

We can’t thank everyone enough for all of the love, support and prayers.

Today was the best day so far. Maddie was able to come home between chemo treatments. She did great with round one and is battling some nausea, but overall is tolerating it well. Her pain has reduced and she hasn’t needed her PRN pain meds since getting home.

She is hoping she will be well enough to return to school soon. She has to be careful of what she exposes herself to. She has a follow up MRI next week to see how well the chemo is shrinking the tumors. We are positive that her fighting spirit is destroying the tumors.

Sarah would like to thank everyone for their support. Her heart is overflowing with the love and support she and her girls have received. We have all discovered what amazing friends and family we have. You all rock!

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to everyone who has supported us. Maddie has started chemo and is doing as well as can be expected. She finally
got some good sleep today.

She is having some nausea from the chemo, which is to be expected. She is a fighter, through and through and I’m proud to be this amazing young woman’s aunt.

Thank you all. My heart overflows with all the support. I will continue to post updates.
