Triangle athlete, Madelyn "MadDog" Wilson (Triangle 17 White) has experienced a relapse of Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Our practice tee is a tribute to the battle she fought last season against cancer and our way to stand with her as she continues to battles back to her healthy self. This relapse will force Mad to undergo another aggressive and very difficult cancer treatment. She will be unable to finish her season and will likely spend most of her summer in the hospital as her body heals itself after a bone marrow transplant.
If you don't know Mad, trust me, she is a WARRIOR!!! After her initial diagnosis and facing a difficult treatment Madelyn thought of others rather than herself and ran a fundraiser for Duke Hospital's Children Oncology Team. Imagine a 15-year newly diagnosed with cancer, isolated and forced to miss school and many other activities, raising over $22,000 to help others. Madelyn raised this money directly for Duke Children's Hospital to help others in her
situation have the best care possible. Like I said, she IS a warrior!
We want to rally people to be by her side as wages battle once again. Unfortunately her bone marrow transplant will keep her isolated for a considerable amount of time as her immune system will be inoperable.
We can all be there with her in spirit and give her an exciting WISH to look forward to by supporting 4v4 MADness - A Make-A-Wish® benefit for Madelyn Wilson. To follow Mad's journey on Caring Bridge visit https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/madlove4mad.
