A young lady in Rogers wants you to know , in the fight against breast cancer, we can all be Superheroes. Nine-year-old Madison Bynoe is an art student with a new title for her future resume. She says, "I knew that Superheroes helped people and I thought a super hero could help people with cancer." And that is exactly what she drew, in an art competition put on by The Ozark Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation.
"Our art teacher told us that it was a contest and I thought oh that would be cool if I won so I wanted to do something special." She explains. And 'pretty special' is a great way to describe the picture Madison drew that you'll see on t-shirts at the Race For The Cure.
She says, "My grandpa and my uncle had cancer so I wanted to make that extra special to do something cause they had cancer."
The winner of the Komen contest knows, cancer no matter what type, is scary, "I wish cancer wasn't even a thing because people get really sick from cancer and that's bad."
And as for that new title , she may not have her cape on today, but super hero, seems to be a pretty good fit for a young lady set on making a difference in the fight against cancer.
Madison is 'super' excited to say The Pledge Of The Allegiance to kick things off for this years Komen Ozark Race For The Cure. In fact she says it would be 'pretty cool ' if people joined her team.
