Young cancer survivor inspires others through Spark the Way foundation

Pinellas County

CLEARWATER, Fla. (WFLA) – Madison Miller is only 26 years-old, wise beyond her years after staring death in the face and winning.

At age 20, Madison was diagnosed with Lymphoma. She says even amidst heartache, she felt hope.

In fact, she was so inspired while receiving treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center, Madison decided to do something to support young cancer victims. That was six years ago.

She started her own non-profit called “Spark the Way,” raising money and awareness for young cancer patients.   Her survivors’ network has been wildly successful. 

Spark the Way sees, serves, and supports young adults, age 18-39, and their families who are affected by cancer. 

They provide a community that walks alongside fighters, survivors, and caregivers by funding medical bills and living expenses, providing connections and emotional support from our care team, and raising awareness through outreach events.

Madison describes it as, “not just a resource, but a relationship.”

Spark the Way’s 3rd Annual ‘Ignite the Light’ Gala was a beautiful and impactful night at the Tampa Bay Garden Club on March 3rd, 2018.

This year’s event is April 26th from 6-9pm at Ruth Eckerd Hall.
