Madison is headed to L.A. to bake with Duff Goldman of Kids Baking Championship and you helped make that happen! Remember Isabella’s Birthday Wish Fundraiser in March? Well, we love when things come around full circle. The timing was just right when we gifted $6,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to go towards a child’s wish… Madison’s wish!
Isabella and Madison have so many similarities and baking is one of them! To be able to use Isabella’s birthday fundraiser to help send Madison off on this baking wish trip is crazy! It gives us goosebumps! 6 1/2 years ago Isabella was given the opportunity to bake cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery while in New York City for scans. On this day her parents learned that Isabella’s cancer had spread to her brain. Although her story did not have a happy ending, we work passionately every day to help other kids fighting cancer live out the happy endings they deserve. And we appreciate you helping us do that in Isabella’s name.
This morning we were able to attend Madison’s Wish Party at CPCC’s Culinary Arts Center. Talk about kicking the week off right! We had the best time watching Madison and her sister, Riley, create pastries and pinwheels. We visited with her family, the Make-A-Wish team and enjoyed watching her Wish Grantors, Peanut Butter & Shelly, smile among them. Madison and her family head off to L.A. in 2 weeks and we can’t wait to share details and photos from their trip! It’s beyond cool to be able to share the stories and show you the impact of your donations!
Madison was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in April of 2018 at five years old. She finished treatment at Levine Children’s in February 2019 and has since had very positive scans showing no cancer! This brave girl has come such a long way in a very short period of time and is currently working hard to be off her walker and use her leg. She has so much to look forward to!
