Creating SMILES everyday for children with cancer.

“A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam. And for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky to have seen it.”

Welcome to Maddi’s Butterflies. Helping children with Neuroblastoma and Rare Cancers.

Creating Smiles Everyday by Granting Small Wishes and Providing Short Breaks in Our Luxury Caravan for Children Suffering From Neuroblastoma and Other Rare Cancers. Maddi’s Butterflies was set up in memory of Madison Allan aged 7 who passed away on Boxing Day 2011 from Neuroblastoma.

Knowing first-hand how this terrible disease can affect not only the child, but also extended family members and in honour of our precious Daughter’s bold and valiant fight, we decided to set up a Charity to help raise awareness and money to assist Families with Children who have also been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma and other rare forms of cancer. 

Our aim is to grant small wishes for children suffering from Neuroblastoma and other Rare Cancers. Quite simply our main focus is to try and put a smile back on their faces.
