Maddy is a 19 year old cancer survivor. In her freshmen year at Pitt, she was diagnosed with lymphoma. She underwent treatment, lost her hair, but kept her smile. It has been one year since her last treatment, and she is healthy. She is headed back to Pitt next week and is studying to be a doctor. She was the inspiration behind the Cancer Recovery Glam Photo Shoot at Lauxmont Farms last month.
In an article posted by the York Daily Record, Maddy said, "I wanted other kids to see how beautiful and strong they looked to other people." When Maddy and I met, I was immediately taken away by her beautiful smile. As the day went on, it was evident that her beauty went much further than the skin.
I was so honored to be chosen as her photographer. Her beauty radiates and her smile is absolutely contagious. I am forever changed by meeting you Madison!
Strength does not come from physical capacity.
It comes from an indomitable will. ~Ghandi
