Our Inspiration - Madelyn Shumaker

Maddie ShumakerWe walk in memory of Madelyn Shumaker and all the other children that have battle brain tumors like DIPG. Madelyn will forever be 8 years old to us. She was diagnosed with DIPG on January 26, 2015 and she earned her angel wings in December of 2015. Maddie had the warmest heart and a deep soul.

We witnessed her compassion grow as she got to know many children battling cancer. Even with her extensive interests, her family remained the center of her world. Despite her young age, she understood the concept of heaven and was prepared for it. Her greatest loves, after her family, were pandas, her friends a Brownell-Talbot, her cat, Titan, and her fish, Rosie. Maddie will remain an inspiration to all who have been touched by her.
