  • I’m walking in Reno/Sparks NV but I think I’m the only blogger here in town that is walking specifically for Maddy. That’d be great if there were others!

  • I donated yesterday – still thinking she’d be ok. I just can’t believe it’s not ok. It’s devastating to think about her parents.

    I’ll walk in Nashville. If you need help Lotus, you have my number.

    • @amy @ milk breath and margaritas,

      I was just on her website last night, noticing how close she was to her goal. And I was just so sure Maddie’d be home from the hospital in no time. It’s just so tragic.

      Thanks so much for committing to walk! I think before the end of the night there will even be tshirts available to purchase to wear for her during the walk, with proceeds going to the Spohrs/MoD.

      Oh, Don’t forget to sign up at the Nashville Team Maddie page so that you’re on the roster!

    Wow, SO sad, just awful. I just signed up for the Los Angeles march & will look into the details and post about it in the morning when I can see straight. This family is in MY city. It’s easy to let things go by – lots of tragedy in the world – but I just think – what if this were my baby? How much would it mean to have so much support coming out of the woodwork, from people you don’t even know? It hit home for me. I’ll be there.

    Hey, how’d you put Maddie’s picture on your badge?

    Kats last blog post..My little musician

    April 09, 2009
    • @Kat,

      I downloaded it to my computer from her donation page, then I stuck it on the Team Maddie page as well as my personal MoD page. Was the only way to get it to go on the badge once I’d registered.

  • You are listed on the blog list of Angie at Keep Believing. You know that she lost her husband to cancer on March 17. Angie and Brian would have celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary on April 19. I am hoping that I can get everyone in her blog list to post on their blogs at 12:00 am on April 19 a post with the title “Keep Believing” so that when she opens her blog, her blog list is filled with recent posts all titled “Keep Believing”. I don’t know how else to arrange this other than commenting on blogs, so forgive my off-topic comment. I would ask that you keep the post up for 24 hours in case she doesn’t look right away, and you don’t have to publish anything with it, just the title will do. I am using the scheduled post feature provided by blogger so I don’t forget. Thanks so much. Heather.

  • Thank you for posting this information. We had initially scrapped our plans to walk this year (we walk every year) as I was going to be out of town speaking at a conference on the date that our city was walking. I came here thinking that I wouldn’t be able to find one to walk in and found that my hometown city has a team on a weekend that I can attend.

    So, thank you. MoD has been important to our family for years. But we’ll be walking for Maddie this year. Thank you.
