Manda's Story

Manda Maxwell was a beautiful 35-year-old wife and mother of two who passed away on February 26, 2017 in Dallas, Texas after a long and courageous battle with cancer. To say she inspired those around her would be an understatement.

Manda first had cancer at the age of five and was in remission until it resurfaced again at age 28. Manda made the brave choice to have one of her legs amputated and continued chemotherapy for the next year in order to completely eradicate the cancer from her body. Five years later, the cancer returned for the third time. Manda fought the disease with all her might and a strength that could only come from God. Now, we celebrate her homecoming and mourn our earthly loss at the same time.

Manda Strong Foundation supports young Mom's fighting cancer. To provide a Christ-centered support system for mother's battling cancer while also raising minor children. Support will come in many forms and will be tailored to meet the needs of each brave family. Your generosity will help in areas likes special family events/gifts.
