Madi Ramirez, daughter of Tom and Megan Ramirez, LeClaire, has been selected as the 2013 MDA State of Iowa Goodwill Ambassador.  

Madi will be making appearances all across the state during the year, representing the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Now seven, she was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) when she was about 2½ years old. 

While Madi is affected with SMA, she doesn’t let that stop her determination to accomplish anything. Her parents say she loves to talk.  She’s silly, lovable and enjoys being the center of attention.  She also enjoys cheerleading and reading.  

Madi has appeared on the MDA Show of Strength, participated in Muscle Walk, was an active Shambassador and has attended MDA Lock Ups.
