Donate for Maddie

Earlier this year, we came across the story of Maddie Higgins, a young Texas girl battling terminal brain cancer. The story came to us because one of Maddie’s final wishes was to meet Kelly Clarkson, but the story touched all of us in more ways than we could’ve imagined.

Thanks to Kinsley’s Kure, Maddie was able to have some of her dreams come true. She experienced snow in Texas in July and had the opportunity to Skype with Kelly Clarkson. Last Sunday, she was set to attend Kelly’s show in Dallas and meet the singer, but became extremely ill and was unable to attend. Just hours later, Maddie passed away with her parents by her side.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Higgins Family during this difficult time. Although Maddie’s time on Earth was way too short, she touched strangers across the world, and we are extremely grateful for the chance to have “known” her.

Last week, we posted the story of Maddie Higgins, a 6-year-old girl with terminal brain cancer who had a big wish to meet Kelly Clarkson. Our fans responded so well to that post that we wanted to keep you updated on Maddie’s situation and help to raise awareness for her fight.

Although her wish to meet Kelly hasn’t come true yet, she was able to have another wish granted, and that was to see snow. The story has been featured by the NY Daily News, CNN, the Huffington Post and more. Now we want to help Maddie get Ellen’s attention. We are posting this in conjunction with Kinsley’s Kure, an organization working to change the lives of terminal kids.
