Maddi's Story

November 28, 2018

Maddi was in a traumatic accident while on a family vacation in Mexico. After her mother had taken a picture of her on a restaurant balcony, Maddi’s foot slipped and she fell 20 feet. Jenny, Maddi’s mother, had her flown to CHOP and when she arrived, a team of people were waiting, ready to do all they could to save Maddi’s life. The diagnosis was seven skull fractures, two fractured vertebrae and a fractured right femur. Maddi was five at the time, and now is nine-years-old. Jenny, Maddi, and the rest of her family will forever be grateful for the care and attention they received at CHOP.
