The Greatest People on Earth
Madison Miller, Clearwater, FL, Age: 24
I was diagnosed with cancer when I was 20 years old. In that same month, cancer also took the man I dreamt of walking me down the aisle one day. Not too soon after that, my Grammy was diagnosed with cancer and still fighting to this day. 2013 was the year that I found myself repeatedly asking God "why?". But the Bible told me that He is trustworthy, so I chose to believe it...
And I'm really happy that I did! The cancer season brought on a lot of dark days, but I never fought alone. The way my church family encouraged, loved and supported me was a bright light in a really dark place. I saw Matthew 5:16 lived out! Even cooler, my faith in Christ gave me the powerful ability not to fear cancer. I can say with an honest heart, there was not one moment that I was afraid in that season. Now, that is my heart for this world- to equip other young adults to be light-bearing fearless fighters in the cancer war.
February 5, 2015, Spark the Way became an official 501(c)(3)!! In time, I hope to accomplish a legacy that’s about the people who Spark the Way impacts- the first generation of light-bearing, fearless fighters. Not in shining our own light, but in reflecting God’s. John 1:1-5. This is what my life is about. I believe that regardless of who you are, we should all do something greater than ourselves. Challenging our limits, testing our capabilities, finding our purpose through each step of faith and obedience to our awesome God. I hope you're encouraged to check our Connect page and become apart of Spark the Way. Together, we can make a difference!
