    Hi Robyn, I met you in May 2009 at the Lionel Ritchie concert during the concert series that spring. You had your picture taken with my daughter MaDee. We were in NY for an appointment at Sloan Kettering. In February 2010, MaDee went home to be with our Lord and Savior. MaDee had started her own story. Her sister and I completed the story and had it published. We also started the MaDee Project, a non-profit foundation that provides financial support to pediatric cancer patients and their families in Augusta County and counties bordering Augusta in Virginia. The foundation also strives to provide funding for innovative research that assists in finding the cause and prevention of pediatric cancers. The MaDee Project is being considered for Virginia's charity as the 2015 Taste of the South recipient. We are honored just to be nominated. My husband and I are going to be in NY on October 3 & 4. I would love to have the opportunity to meet with you and give you a copy of MaDee's story, Dancing in the Rain. Check out Thank you for making MaDee's day on that rainy May morning in 2009. I am forever grateful. Sincerely, forever & ever, MaDee's mommoreless
