Maddi’s Butterflies is a charity that supports children with Neuroblastoma or other rare forms of cancer and their families, whether it be to arrange a day trip, a short holiday or to even possibly transform a child’s bedroom. Their main focus though is to put a smile back on the faces of children who are suffering pain and are in discomfort.
Neuroblastoma is a very aggressive type of childhood cancer. It is a cancer of the nervous system, and can therefore affect every part of the body. It affects around 100 children every year in the UK.
Maddi’s Butterflies has been set up to treat children like Maddi, who unfortunately died on Boxing Day 2011 after bravely fighting this dreadful disease for most of her childhood. The charity had been named after Maddi’s love of dancing where she mimicked the delicate fluttering and grace of a Butterfly.
Caring Kindergartens hold various charity events in honour of Maddi and the charity set up by her family. We will donate monies raised by the nursery, through the support of the children and their families. We will continue to inform you of the Charity and our efforts to support them.
