The Famous Madeline: A Tribute

Maddie, I've never met you....but I love you.

I love your parents, your dog Rigby, and your beautiful little sister Annabel.

I would do anything to ease their pain. To make living without you less painful. Even for just one minute.

I'm sure you already know that you have changed the world.

Your golden curls and infectious smile can be seen all over the internet today.

Your parents set up a non-profit organization in your name so people can help the families of sick babies everywhere.

People are even Marching for Maddie all over the country!

Little girl, you are amazing.

I've never met you, but I love you.

And millions of other people do, too.
