Thirteen Year Old Madisen Abramson has grown up in hospital rooms. after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at the age of three, she decided to use her experience to help other children in similar situations. 

"We got here after a tiny little event in Southern Florida after we went through, the craziest experiences of out lives.", she told Four in Your Corner. 

Madison spent a lot of her time in Southwest Florida with her uncle and other family in the area while she was getting treatment. He came up with Madisen's Match ten years ago. The event has since bloomed into an annual fundraiser. The event brings together families and big names from the tennis world. 

It was the donations from the previous event that helped the playroom at Golisano Children's Hospital come together. She's hoping it will help other children who find themselves trying to heal from serious illnesses.

"You don't think children should have to go through this, this just makes it all a lot better."

For her part, Madisen, just hopes this playroom will provide an outlet for the children who need it.
