La Mirada~Children fighting cancer will benefit from a fundraiser sponsored by From Maddi’s Closet on Friday, November 13 at the Friendly Hills Country Club.

The “Butterfly Wishes and Golden Dreams” themed event is one of the major fundraisers for From Maddi’s Closet’s efforts to assist children fighting cancer.  In recent years, the local group has donated more than $230,000 to assist with children’s cancer research and provided emotional and financial support to thousands of patients and their families.

“Childhood cancer is the number one disease-related killer of children in our country, and it is critically important that we increase awareness of what we can do to fight this terrible disease,” says Donna Holmes, president and founder of From Maddi’s Closet.

Holmes has been actively carrying her message about the battle against children’s cancer to local groups. She has spoken with local Chambers of Commerce, service clubs, businesses and numerous other community organizations.  She is available to speak to groups that are interested in learning more about the importance of working together to improve the lives of children and families facing this difficult battle.

From Maddi’s Closet is a local nonprofit organization started a decade ago after Madison Leslie Holmes lost her battle with cancer at four years of age.

Maddi’s family and friends began the organization to carry on the extraordinary spirit of generosity and compassion the young girl had shown to other children fighting cancer. Despite her illness, Maddi befriended other children undergoing treatment, and gave her own toys and clothing to those in need.  She asked her family to sit with other children who were more sick, frightened or lonely when they had no family members at the hospital.

La Mirada~Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Captain Curtis Jensen is inviting residents, business leaders, faith communities and service group members to join a crime prevention initiative to reduce property crimes in La Mirada.  Hear from your community leaders on how crime affects everyone and what you can do to get involved!
