Maddie's Match #8

Maddie's Match is BACK!

Join us Sunday 13 August at Marvel Stadium at 3.20 pm.

Together, we can Fight Like Maddie for people living with Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes.

Maddie Riewoldt was just 26 years old when she tragically died of a Bone Marrow Failure Syndrome called Aplastic Anaemia. When her fight was ending in February 2015, she asked her family to make her a promise; Maddie wanted nobody else to go through what she did.

Maddie Riewoldt’s Vision is her legacy.

Every 3 days an Australian is diagnosed with a Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes. Distressingly, most of them are children and young adults, and 50% will not survive. Thousands more are living with ongoing complex health issues.

At Maddie’s Vision, we are determined to find better support options, treatments and a cure for patients living with Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes and their families. Please join us and together, we will #FightLikeMaddie.

About Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes

Bone Marrow Failure Syndromes are a collection of medical conditions where the bone marrow stops working or works insufficiently. 

This means that bone marrow stem cells can’t produce enough healthy red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to meet the body’s daily requirements. When a person’s bone marrow no longer works adequately, they become extremely sick
