This 8-Year-Old's Dream Of A Kinder World Didn't Die With Her

An amazing story.

Maddy Grayless wanted to make a difference in the world and she did.

Just two weeks ago, on June 2, 2015, the 8-year-old Longmont, Colorado girl developed a nosebleed that wouldn't stop. When her parents took her to the emergency room, concerned doctors discovered that she had osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer. They gave Maddy just two months to live. 


"She talked a lot about the things she was going to miss," her mother, Jessica Grayless, told Denver's FOX31 News

" And she said to me at one point, ‘Mom, I just wanted to be able to make a difference.’

Last Tuesday morning, Maddy Grayless passed away. But her dream is being kept alive by a Facebook group committed to random acts of kindness. 

Calling themselves "Maddy's Mighty Minions," the group dedicates itself to doing kind acts in Maddy's honor, spreading goodness wherever they can.

The group has grown to over 8000 members.

Maddy Grayless may be gone, but her simple dream lives on, thanks to people who share her ideal of a kinder world.
