Maddie Lundberg Charity FootGolf event on April 4 at 3:30pm
Maddie Lundberg started her collegiate soccer career four years ago at her dream school, the Air Force Academy. Six months later she found out she had diabetes type 1. She appealed 3 times to not get "medically discharged" for the Air Force Academy but for obvious reasons, the appeals did not work. After 18 months of appealing, she transferred to Rice University. She excelled as a member of the team and was named a team captain. Then, in the summer of 2016, she had a seizure. Maddie underwent months of testing to find out what the cause was, but there was no success. After months of coming in and out of the hospital, she decided to quit playing soccer and instead focus on recovering. Maddie unfortunately had to take off her last semester of her senior year to see a specialist. Finally, there was progress. Recently, she was diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS). She is not able to maintain a regular heart beat and will have to struggle through eight months of physical therapy to retrain her heart. With everything that has happened, we want to help Maddie with her medical costs.
