This event will support The Maddison Joy Foundation

Founded by Joyce ASN student, Lindsey Taylor, and inspired by her 7-year-old daughter, Maddi, who has Cystic Fibrosis. Hear more about Maddi’s story and The Maddison Joy Foundation below.

At Joyce, we’re committed to caring for patients and each other, so this year, we’ll be raising proceeds to support The Maddison Joy Foundation. The Maddison Joy Foundation is focused on finding a cure for those living with Cystic Fibrosis through donations that help fund medication and treatment advancements. The foundation also fundraises for CF families in Utah who experience difficulty paying their medication co-pays, while spreading awareness and educating the public about Cystic Fibrosis.

3 Ways to Donate to The Maddison Joy Foundation


1. Donate Online

With your donation of $3, we will decorate an ornament with your name on it and hang it on the campus tree so you can show your support for Cystic Fibrosis research. If you prefer your donation be anonymous, please donate and email your request to

2. Take a Picture With Santa
