Miracles for Madi Vanstone

Madi is a grade 7 girl at our school with cystic fibrosis. She has fought this disease all of her life, going in and out of hospital with chronic lung and stomach infections. A new drug called Kalydeco is effective in a small group of people with Madi's condition. Fortunately, Madi has begun taking Kalydeco, with very positive results. Unfortunately, this medication is not approved in Ontario, making it extremely expensive. In efforts to help Madi to be able to continue receiving Kalydeco, a fund-raiser is being held on Saturday, September 21st from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm at the park in Beeton. There will be lots of things to do for the whole family, including a very special concert by recording artist John McDermott. Your support at this event will truly help Madi and her family achieve the miracle they have sought for a long time.
