Maddie’s Mark: Tribe Member Erin Musto’s Mission to Help Families & Spread Her Daughter’s Spirit by Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead
Maddie’s Mark is a non-profit foundation dedicated to helping families enjoy their “best days ever.” The organization was established in 2012 in honor of Madeline Musto, a kind, independent, adorable, vibrant 5-year-old who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG). During the five days between her diagnosis and her death, Madeline and her family enjoyed many best moments and best days ever.
The foundation’s mission is to "spread Madeline's spirit by providing opportunities, creating environments, and enabling children and families to live a life of 'best days ever.'"
