In times of need, Madison residents are proud to show their support. That is exactly what happezned on June 4. On this day there was a Poker Run held in honor of Catherine Maultsby. There were 67 bikes that took part in this awesome event.
Catherine, daughter of J.P. and Julie Maultsby, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her left lower leg on March 10. Her leg was amputated just two days before the poker run, on June 2. To date, Catherine has completed seven of her 18 treatments to fight the cancer in her body. She begins her next round of chemotherapy on July 5.
While Catherine herself could not be at the poker run, her spirit and love were felt in the hearts of all that attended. Catherine has fought through this terrible ordeal with strength and bravery far beyond her years; she is only eight years old.
