Her Last Wish Was To Make A Difference. She Never Imagined THIS Would Happen

June 19, 2015

A little girl from Longmont, Colorado is inspiring random acts of kindness not just in her neighborhood, but all over the world.

Maddy Grayless was a spunky, curious 8-year-old with dreams of becoming a paleontologist, cupcake baker and a singer.

But two weeks ago, things took a tragic turn when she got a nosebleed that would not stop, Fox31 in Denver reports. Her parents brought her to the emergency room. After a night of testing, Maddy was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a deadly form of bone cancer. Doctors gave her two months to live.

"She was so sad," her mother, Jessica Grayless explained. "She talked a lot about the things she was going to miss. And she said to me at one point, 'Mom, I just wanted to be able to make a difference.'"

Thanks to a group of strangers on Facebook, Maddy is making a big difference. Someone started a page called "Maddy's Mighty Minions" - a "pay it forward" campaign designed to inspire people to brighten someone's day.

Maddy did not live to see the good that she has inspired. She passed away at home on Tuesday morning, exactly two weeks after being diagnosed.

Although her family is heartbroken without her, they find comfort in the fact that Maddy's legacy will live on.
