This Fund was started in honor of a 10-year old girl who is near and dear to our hearts. Daughter to a former college roommate, Maddie was diagnosed with Non-sclerosing Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Maddie has made it her mission to raise money to have each room of the Pediatric Unit of the hospital painted happy, calming colors. (With support of the Child Life and Winthrop administration). In addition, the Maddie Girard Fund would like to provide patients with his or her's room decorating kits, to help create smiles, during their stay on the 5th floor.
We were honored to help support our friend and her family by donating logo design services. When we asked Maddie what she liked, she said "peace signs, green and purple". Our design landed a smile and landed on a team of walkers at the CureSearch Walk, Long Island.
