The Children's Wish Foundation approached lovely thirteen-year old Maddison Babineau just after she received her cancer diagnosis. “You can have anything,” they told her, “a Disney cruise? The chance to meet your favorite movie star? A five thousand dollar shopping spree?” Maddie knew exactly what she wanted. She had recently been moved to tears after watching a television program about the plight of orphaned children in an African village. Maddie's wish? To ease the suffering of these children half-way across the world. Despite the ravishing cancer, she became an indefatigable fundraiser for “her children.” In The Girl Who Gave Her Wish Away, her mother reveals Maddie's remarkable journey of providing hope and future to the village children who had filled her heart. A special story, heartwarming and reassuring.Maddie was recognized, in life and posthumously, with a number of awards, honors, and memorials. A park have been named in her honor and hundreds of schools use the example of Maddie's charity as to how even one person can make a difference. Tens of thousands of students have been inspired by her story.This is Maddison's never-before-told story—a fascinating and inspirational account of a most remarkable journey.
