Wishing Upon a MACC*STAR

2012 MACC*StarThe 25th anniversary 2012 TODAY'S TMJ4 MACC*Star makes the perfect holiday gift that keeps on giving. The silver anniversary edition is a brightly colored, porcelain ornament that will provide Hope for children with cancer and blood disorders long after the holidays have past.

This year's MACC*Star was designed by 10-year-old Maggie Conlon of Brookfield. Maggie was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma as a 5-week-old. She had a golf ball-sized tumor under her tongue. She responded well to treatment despite her age and now visits the MACC Fund Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin for annual check-ups.

She is best friends with her 13-year-old sister Catie and has great parents who are helping her sell MACC*Stars. She loves playing soccer and loves all of the teams in Wisconsin, especially the Packers. Her MACC*Star features the words Love, Joy, Dream, Smile and Hope. It features a snowman and the phrase "Helping to Chill Out Cancer."
