The Children's Wish Foundation approached lovely thirteen-year-old Maddison Babineau just after she received her cancer diagnosis. "You
can have anything," they told her, "a Disney cruise? The chance to meet your favorite movie star? A five thousand dollar shopping spree?"
Maddie knew exactly what she wanted. She had recently been moved to tears after watching a television program about the plight of orphaned
children in an African village. Maddie's wish? To ease the suffering of these children half-way across the world. Despite the ravishing cancer, she became an indefatigable fundraiser for "her children."In The Girl Who Gave Wish Away, her mother reveals Maddie's remarkable journey of providing hope and future to the village children who had filled her heart.
A special story, heartwarming and reassuring. Foreword by Craig Kielburger, Co-Founder, FREE THE CHILDREN
