About Madisonation

NEVER GIVE UP!

Join us as we continue the fight against Childhood Cancer!

Natalie, Mom, and Uncle

Natalie's single Mom, Ariel, has relied on the support of her parents and brother, Alan.

Our 2018 Beneficiary: Natalie Morley

In January 2016, after Natalie Morley, age 4, was kicked in the face at daycare by another child, a lump appeared near her temple. Concerned because the lump wasn’t getting any smaller, Natalie’s mother, Ariel Riddick, took her for a series of doctor’s appointments. By mid-February, when the lump still hadn’t subsided, her pediatrician ordered a CT scan and biopsy. Natalie was diagnosed with stage 3 Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma.

“Thank God for the kick! Without it we may have never known what was going on,” says Ariel. Natalie just completed a 43-week treatment plan that included radiation and chemotherapy under the medical supervision of Women and Children’s Hospital and Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center physicians.

As a single mother, Ariel has had to rely on others, including her parents and brother, as a support system during this incredibly difficult time. “My parents have been a great help in spending time with Natalie while I'm at work or offering to watch her so I can refill the energy bar. Before I ran out of FMLA leave, my brother accompanied us to treatment to learn the ropes. When I went back to work, he stepped in for me, taking my daughter to treatment, being present for a clinic appointment, in home nursing appointments, scans, giving meds and accepting medicine deliveries. He put up with me, my emotions and my need to be present even while away through coordinating conference calls, FaceTime calls, etc. Without them all, I don't know how we could have made it this far.”

Beyond the support of Ariel’s parents and brother, friends and family offered their time. “Stopping by the hospital to hang with Natalie so I could shower or grab a cup of coffee gave me the opportunity to get things done that my newly busy schedule didn’t allow me to do,” she explains. Others helped by dropping off meals. “Sometimes the smallest things do make a difference,” Ariel says.

Madison Muckle

Madison Muckle

My name is Madison Marie Muckle and was just like any other 3 year old when I celebrated my 3rd birthday on December 22, 2010. A few days later, on December 27, 2010, at my 3 year old checkup, everything changed. My doctor sent me to Golisano Children's Hospital for some blood work and x-rays. That evening my parents and I were told that I had cancer. Our lives, at that point, was turned upside down. After several tests and procedures I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. My body was 95% full of cancer and I spent the next month in the hospital receiving bone marrow aspirations, spinal taps and chemotherapy. I was told after several weeks that I was in remission. Since then, I have spent many days in the hospital receiving chemotherapy and getting spinal taps to be sure the cancer has not spread. I also needed to take several types of medicines at home on a daily basis.

In the spring of 2013, I received my last chemotherapy treatment. I am now a healthy and normal 10 year old girl. I still continue to go to Golisano Children’s Hospital every 3 months for routine checkups. I will continue to do so for another couple years until they finally say I am completely cancer free and have beaten this horrible disease.

I now lead a normal life like most kids. I am now 10 years old entering 5th grade, and I love school. I participate in dance and cheerleading. I am also helping my dad as much as I can with my tournament. I want to try and help others like others have helped me. It has been a struggle over the last few years but thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses at Golisano Children's Hospital, I will continue to move forward in becoming a healthy and 100% cancer free child.

"NEVER GIVE UP"

Madisonation "Never Give Up" was a motto we have had with Madison since the night she was diagnosed. The night we found out she had cancer, Madison was wearing her John Cena (still her favorite wrestler) "Never Give Up" t-shirt. One of the hospital employees admitting her noticed her shirt and told her to "never give up" just like her shirt said. Since then we have stuck to that motto and we will continue to. Not only for Madison but for all children suffering from cancer.

Our Mission

Madisonation is a non for profit organization to continue the fight against childhood cancer. Our annual golf tournament donates proceeds to local organizations helping others or families that have a child currently fighting or this horrible disease.

The Battle Against Cancer

This says it all.... "Children With Cancer Are Like Candles In The Wind Who Accept That They Are In Danger Of Being Extinguished By A Gust Of Wind From Nowhere and YET, They Flicker And Dance To Remain Alive, Their Brilliance Challenges The Darkness And Dazzles Those Of Us Who Watch Their Light"
