Circle of Care Champions
2021 5K Champion
Maddie, a 14-year-old high schooler from Brookfield CT, is a life-long athlete, Yankee fan, and lover of all things sports. But in 2018 a diagnosis of Ewing sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, stopped her in her tracks. Despite Maddie's extensive treatment, requiring chemotherapy and surgery to remove parts of her femur to allow regrowth of her bone, her cancer was no match for her strong will and determination to get back in the game. Her treatment ended in 2019, and since then her attitude on life and efforts at rehabilitation have allowed her to regain strength and mobility of her leg, as well as improve her overall endurance. Maddie continues to be a source of inspiration to us all, and we are proud to have her and her family in our Circle.
