From Maddi’s Closet depends on volunteers and donations to make each of the following events a success. The patients, parents, and staff definitely look forward to the visits. Our commitment is to provide activity supplies for 65 – 100 patients at each hospital. This keeps us pretty busy!  Rainbows of Hope  This is a major and on-going fund raiser to support research. Brochure can be viewed on website. Our goal is to fund $2,000 for 35 patients to participate in a study called “Saving Lives, Saving Neurons: The Head Start Program for Young Children with Malignant Brain Tumors.” It is one of the highest profile treatment protocals for young children and has been developed by Dr. Jonathan Finlay, Neuro-Oncology, Los Angeles Childrens Hospital. Institutions around the world share in the research – a breakthrough will improve survival rates and minimize damage. We need your help!
