The most sweetest 4 year old little girl named Madi  lives a couple doors down from my parents, and has made a mark on everyone that comes in contact with her.  She is full of questions and joy!  Madi has brought much joy to my parents and I have also had the opportunity of meeting her when I visit! She is known as the neighbourhood "Granddaughter" and just warms the hearts of everyone that crosses her path. 

It's with sadness that I am having to reach out for financial help on behalf of Madi's parents Crystal & Craig Gordon.

Madi was admitted on October 15th at the Sick Kids Hospital in London, and has been diagnosed with enterovirus D68 with a severe case of acute flaccid paralysis (as well as a spackle of other things) 

She is in the pediatric critical care unit.  She is Intubated, having minor sporadic seizures (as a symptom, not a cause of what's going on), tons of treatment and diagnostics still need to be figured out,  and what is going to be the correct concoction for her. She is still fighting and stable.

Both of her parents are not able to work for the time being as they need to be with Madi.  As we all know, bills keep coming regardless of whether your working or not.  I am asking that you join me in donating whatever amount you feel comfortable with  to help cover the costs being accumulated while they are in London with Madi, as well as their mortage, utilities, food, clothing, not only for themselves but for there 3 other children, Emma (13years old) Logan(11 years old) and Lukas (7 years old)  that are currently staying with other family.  

Crystal & Craig have enough to worry about, lets come together and help out so they can be there for Madi and have a little less to worry about, any donation would be greatly appreciated.  

Words cannot express, how much this means, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts!

Madi Update: Madi is home full time now and we are enjoying getting back to life! We do our therapy sessions three times a week at thames valley children center in London. Our team of specialists and therapist in London have proved to be exceptional and familiar with Madi's condition and moving forward. We feel re motivated and reassured as a family moving forward. She continues to make gains each week still! She is ventilated only at night, can hold her head up for 45seconds on her own, has movement in all her limbs and is gaining strength slowly. Her neurologist is confident for a full recovery! Slow but steady! Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all of your continued support and generosity.

Here is an update on Madi, this is proof that with lots of prayers and positivity, positive things can happen! Keep fighting Madi

Madi had a great weekend of visiting with family and friends.

She is healing nicely from her trach and GI tube surgery on Thursday. She is very smiley and happy to have her face free of tape and tubes! She is getting stronger each week.

Her left lung hasn't collapsed since friday and with the trach she is able to now weakly cough. All great things! We are looking forward to this week of hitting the rehab goals!

Just thought today would be a great day to let you all know that Madi is stable and there is some positive news!! ❤️

She can give a "thumbs up" with her left fingers! There is very slight movement on her right fingers and toes.

The best news is she can smile! . She is however still on the ventilator and feeding tube.

Let’s keep praying for Madi, I believe it’s with all this love, prayers and support that she will get a little better every single day
