In April 2015, Tim and Rachel’s youngest child, Madison, was a healthy high school senior. She was the captain of her softball team and planned to attend Virginia Tech.
One Monday afternoon, she suddenly did not feel well and went to urgent care, but was sent home. That night, she complained of a severe headache and went to the local hospital. She was immediately airlifted to Inova Fairfax Hospital. By then, it was too late – her organs were already failing. She passed away on Tuesday morning.
Tim and Rachel are dedicated to bringing awareness to this disease and its prevention so that no other parents have to go through what they went through.
