Meet Madison!

Meet Madison!

In this week's blog post, we want to introduce you to Madison - an extraordinary little girl who has captured our hearts. Madison was born with a very rare variant that is shared with only 5 other people in the world! This variant is located on her MT-CO1 gene, which is a mitochondrial gene. Despite the challenges she faces, Madison's spirit and resilience shine brightly.

Recently, Madison underwent surgery to have a cecostomy placed, and we were thrilled to hear that she wore her Miracle Gown for the procedure. Her mom reached out to us to let us know how much Madison loved her gown and how soft it felt against her skin. We couldn't help but feel a sense of joy and fulfillment in knowing that our clothing was able to bring comfort and happiness to Madison during a difficult time.

Madison's medical journey is ongoing. Her mom shared with us the news that she was recently accepted into the undiagnosed disease network, a program dedicated to helping individuals with rare conditions find answers and support. As Madison continues to undergo procedures and tests, we will be there alongside her, cheering her on every step of the way.

Aside from her medical journey, Madison is like any other little girl with dreams, interests, and a vibrant personality. Her favorite color is pink, and she adores playing with her younger sister. Science, reading, and anything related to animals captivate her curious mind. Madison has a special bond with her black puppy stuffed animal, which has been by her side since she was just two months old. A loyal and steadfast companion, her puppy offers comfort and solace during challenging times.

At "This Little Heart of Mine," stories like Madison's inspire us to continue our mission of providing comfortable and stylish clothing for medically complex kids. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Madison's journey and we look forward to witnessing her resilience and joy unfold in the years to come. Stay tuned for more updates on Madison as she continues to show us what true strength and bravery look like.
