March Emphasis


Madison Cicarella

For the month of March, FCCWH will be collecting donations for Madison (Madi) Cicarella! Madi, as we all call her, is a beautiful, talented, and kind 8th grader who lives in West Haven. Madi has recently been diagnosed with Myelodysplasia, a type of cancer in which the bone marrow does not make enough healthy blood cells (red and white blood cells and platelets) and there are abnormal cells in the blood and/or bone marrow. Madi is starting months of treatments including chemotherapy and will eventually need a bone marrow transplant.


All the donations collected will go to assist Madi and her mom with ongoing treatment and expenses. FCCWH will be matching a portion of what is collected throughout the month of March! Every little bit helps, and together we can help Madi and her mom as they take this journey.


Small brown Mission envelopes will be available during in person services. 

Please notate March Monthly Mission Emphasis in the memo/note For any check mailed or online contributions.


Thank you from the Mission Committee
