Edgecomb child’s wish is coming true

Posted:  Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 10:30am

On Friday, Dec. 8, nine-year-old Madison Lorrain found out her wish will be granted. She is going on an all-expenses paid trip to Disney World with her family thanks to Make-A-Wish Maine.

Madison wished for a trip to Disney because she wanted to bring her family on a trip. She will be joined by her parents, Kristin and Steve, and her uncle and godfather, Kevin.

She is most excited for all of the rides at Disney and is a fan of mermaids.

Madison was diagnosed with cancer in March of 2017 and received care through the Maine Children’s Cancer Program (MCCP), a pediatric oncology program of The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital at Maine Medical Center. Her last treatment was in September and she is now cancer free.

LincolnHealth, a member of MaineHealth, where Madison’s mother works, would like to wish the Lorrain family a wonderful trip.

Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. As one of 61 chapters across the U.S., Make-A-Wish Maine has been granting wishes for local children with life-threatening medical conditions since 1992. Founded by Wayne and Caroline Morong in Camden, Make-A-Wish Maine has grown to serve children in each of Maine's 16 counties, and grants an average of one wish every five days. All money raised in Maine stays in Maine. For a list of ways to help Make-A-Wish Maine, please visit www.maine.wish.org.
