Madison Taylor (Madi) was born in 2003, in Poway, CA and instantly made the world a happier place. She is always smiling, making funny faces, and keeping her friends and family laughing. Madi is an avid gymnast who competed at State Meet in November 2014.
In March, 2015 after complaining of hip pain, a suspicious mass was found and shown to be cancerous. A bone marrow evaluation, CT scan, and bone scan showed that the cancer was localized to the tumor on her hip and diagnosed as Ewing Sarcoma. Madison began Chemotherapy treatment on March 10th , 2015. On January 29th, 2016 Madi was declared cancer free. SHE HAD WON THE FIGHT!
Unfortunately, only 12 days later a new battle began. On February 10, 2016 Madi was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). AML is a risk factor associated with her treatment of Ewing’s Sarcoma but it rarely appears in just 11 days of being declared cancer free.
