DECATUR, Ala. — The 2nd annual Fishing for FAM Bass Tournament is happening this weekend and it’s all to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer.
The young lady putting it on is Mady Kelsoe. News 19 told her story last year when Mady was hoping to dance with P. Diddy on the Ellen show and it happened!
Mady is only 14 years old and fighting her fifth cancer relapse. She says this weekend’s tournament is focused on breaking the stigma of childhood cancer and getting the conversation started.
“I think it’s important because not a lot of people really talk about it and stuff, so to be able to… for it to be out there and be able to raise money and awareness and stuff… I think it’ll really help it get the word out there,” said Mady.
The funds will be donated to FAM or “Fighting All Monsters.” It’s an organization that Mady is a part of, which supports families with children facing threatening challenges, like childhood cancer.
