Day 1,007: The Romano Concert

Madi and Jack had a great start to their day. They went over to Pam and Medford’s house for a visit while Mommy & Daddy got some things done. They coloured and played with stickers and had some lunch

After their visit it was time for Madi to head downtown for a special concert. Jack went to Nate’s house for a play and to help Papa and Uncle Mark build their backyard rink.

Madi was super excited for the concert. She was invited by Mario Romano and his family to attend with some of her other warrior friends. The music that Mario played was amazing and Madison loved listening and being busy getting in and out of her seat the whole time. Mid way through the performance, Mario addressed the crowd and said some lovely things about Madi and her warrior friends. The special surprise at the end of the concert was a Performance by the Kenyan Boys Choir. Madison was mesmerized by their dancing and playing of the drums.

After the performance drinks and food were served which the kids loved! Madi was thrilled to spot her poster blown up from someone at the event.

It was then time for the most exciting part of the night…. meeting Mario for the first time! He said hello to all Madi’s friends and had such kind words and lots of hugs for them. For those who may need a reminder, Mario was the very generous man who made the large donation to 16 children back in March who had already had SDR, or who were in the process of going for the surgery. He donated $500,000!!

He promised them a party this summer at his house for all the warrior kids he has helped over the past year as a time to get together and reflect on all the amazing people that help one another and all of the amazing cp kids and how special they are.

Mommy’s most memorable part of the evening was watching the Kenyan Boys Choir sing to Madison and her friends back stage after the event. It was magical…a very special moment. Check out Madi’s Facebook page to see the video.

Thank you to the Romano’s for a beautiful evening!
