    It's probably a given that most people had a good time at the Thomas Rhett concert Friday night at Darien Lake. It's also probably ok to think nobody had an experience quite like Madison Marie Muckle of Albion. Thomas noticed her in the crowd and brought her onstage to give her a hug and take a selfie. What caught his eye? A sign she was holding. Madison’s sign said "Look what God gave her: Beat cancer, Thomas Rhett concert, selfie with Thomas." That’s all it took for Thomas to invite her onstage to take a selfie. Thomas later posted the video and photo on his instagram account which has 3.4 million followers. At the time this post was written, there were already close to 700,000 views on the video. With the photo, Thomas posted "Madison, it was such a pleasure meeting you! May God continue to bless you and your sweet family.  Hope you had a great time at the show

     Madison’s story is one of triumph. Just after her 3rd birthday, she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. On the Madisonation golf tournament site, Madison writes "I now lead a normal life like most kids. I am now 11 years old entering 6th grade, and I love school. I participate in dance and cheerleading. I am also helping my dad as much as I can with my tournament. I want to try and help others like others have helped me. It has been a struggle over the last few years but thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses at Golisano Children’s Hospital, I will continue to move forward in becoming a healthy and 100% cancer free child." Proceeds from the Madisonation Golf tournament, which will take place on August 25th, will go to the Michael Napoleone Memorial Foundation, Inc., established in 2007, is in memory of Michael C. Napoleone, the eight year-old son of Mark and Laurie Napoleone from Batavia, NY who died from Burkitts Lymphoma/Leukemia, an aggressive form of blood cancer.
