This local market was started by a family friend to help Maddi, who at 2½ years was diagnosed with high risk ALL. The market was such a success, Maddi's mum Penny, decided to have one every year to support kids with an illness or disability. The funds raised can be used for treatment, holidays or wherever the family needs financial support. Maddi's Market raised over $6,000 for Iziyah in 2016, over $8,000 for Benjiro in 2017 and over $7,000 for Isabella in 2018.
In 2019, Maddi's Market is supporting nine year old Jayden, and his family. At 14 months, Jayden was diagnosed with a large JPA (brain tumour). Multiple surgeries, chemo and radiation treatments have left him blind in one eye and with low vision in the other; he has ADHD, his processing is slow, in speech, memory recall, all due to the damage from his journey thus far. He was diagnosed in 2018 with Moyamoya disease as a result of radiation. This disease is rare with no cure.
Buzz Marketing has helped Maddi's Market with marketing advice as well as graphic design work for road signs, posters and flyers over the last four years. We look forward to continuing our support in the years to come.
