Miracles for Maddie

The Aquin Servant Leaders will be hosting a 50/50 raffle, game concessions and a Bake Sale for Maddie on Thursday, October 15 at Aquin during the volleyball match between Aquin and Forreston--with all proceeds going to Maddie.

Baked good donations are being accepted beginning Wednesday through Thursday. If bringing them to the game to be sold, please have them ready to be sold (pre-packaged and priced if possible).

Of course, cash donations will also be accepted for Maddie.

And--get on your knees--prayers are needed just as much as donations!

Meet the talented and admired Miss Madeline Thompson who is proving to be an amazingly strong girl.

Read the whole story on 'Mighty Maddie's Caring Bridge page.

Maddie is the daughter of Phil and Katra (Schirmer, Aquin class of 1995) Thompson and the granddaughter of Mrs. Patricia Schirmer (former Forreston teacher and recently retired Aquin English teacher). She is also the big sister of Becca and Nathan. The Thompsons live in Hannibal, Missouri. She is being treated at St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Katra summarizes Maddie's cancer situation this way:
"She has Medullablastoma which is a common form of brain tumors/cancer for kids. Maddie's has spread to her spine which puts her in the "high risk" category. They did genetics testing on the tumor and found that her cancer is the most common type, that is good news as far as treatment."

Send your prayers and support to this family as they fight the battle.
