12 year old Madison was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a form of congenital heart disease where the entire left half of her heart is underdeveloped. She has had seven open-heart surgeries all performed out of state at Childrens' Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA). Madison's heart started to fail last year. After a lengthy stay at the hospital, she was fortunate enough to receive a new heart in July. Madison was on the road to recovery or so the family thought. Madison started to experience violent seizures a few months ago and a series of test were performed. It was discovered that she has Posttransplant Lymphoproliferative Disease (PTLD) in the form of a malignant tumor on her brain. She is now receiving chemotherapy at CHLA.

Madison's family bleeds Blue. Her father is a sixteen-year Officer for LVMPD. Her brother is an Officer for N.D.O.C., and her Uncle was an Officer for North Las Vegas Police Department who was killed in the line of duty in 1995.

Madison has been in the hospital with her mother by her side for the last two months. The family is requesting assistance to off-set the tremendous financial burden placed on them by this.
