Last month, we were devastated to learn that our beautiful and vibrant, 31-year-old sister, Madison, was diagnosed with breast cancer.

It’s been a roller coaster ride since that day––Madison grappling with the immensity of her illness while simultaneously starting her dream job as a kindergarten teacher, co-running her family of four, and attending a slew of doctors’ appointments.

Madison and her husband, Antonio, have been handling her diagnosis and initial treatments with utmost grace and humor, from long family FaceTime calls explaining each step of the treatment process to photos of Madison modeling in her array of colorful hospital gowns.

 Madison has had to navigate difficult conversations with her four-year-old son and one-and-a-half-year-old daughter, yet always keeps a positive outlook. Together they read picture books of superhero moms armed with kisses and are planning to have a haircutting party to celebrate the chemo working.

We feel blessed to be within Madison’s wide circle of loving care. Many of her friends, family, neighbors, and acquaintances have reached out, curious about how they can support her.

As Madison faces the accumulated strain of chemotherapy, she will have to stop working – a salary on which her family depends.  On top of this, there will be a range of medical, childcare, and other expenses. We are asking for your help to cover these costs so that our sister can use these next months to be with her family and to, as her four-year-old son Egan would say, "kick cancer's booty!"

Every prayer, every dollar, every gesture of support is greatly appreciated.

With love and gratitude,
The Clements Sisters

I am writing to update you all with the latest on Madison’s road to recovery.

Last Thursday, Madison had a mastectomy with lymph node dissection. The surgery went smoothly and after a few bumps in the road, she was discharged from the hospital on Saturday. She is now recuperating at home and getting stronger each day.

I am excited to share some amazing news that Madison and I received this morning from her surgical oncologist. The pathology report from surgery showed that there was no remaining cancer in the lymph nodes and that the chemo had reduced the remaining cancer in the breast tissue by 90 percent! Her surgeon was thrilled with these results and called chemo a great success!

Next, Madison will need radiation and, most likely, 6 months of oral chemotherapy. After that, she will have reconstructive surgery to replace her chest expander with a permanent implant.

We could not have made it this far without all the thoughts, prayers, words of support, and generous donations from you all. Thank you for helping Madison kick cancer’s booty!

Happy Holidays!
Chemo is working wonders - grateful that there are only two infusions left.
With her strong spirit, Madison is a bright light in these darker winter months.
Wishing everyone love, health, and joy in the coming year.
