Just over a month after her first birthday, Madison was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy - a group of disorders that occur in infancy and affect a person's muscular and nervous systems. This condition typically impairs the developing brain's ability to control muscles and commonly affects movement and posture.
Since her diagnosis, Madison's life has been filled with constant doctors visits and therapy sessions that interrupt her daily life. At just five years old, she has already undergone two surgeries to reduce spasticity, prevent muscle deformities and increase the range of her muscles.
In spite of this, Madison has become her family's very own superhero- which is why she decided to name her bear Super Bear! This energetic little girl is always ready for her next adventure, whether she's skiing, horseback riding, or showing off her swimming skills. She also wanted her bear to be able to grant wishes, just like Starlight, which is why he holds a big purple star in his paws
