Brookville, PA – Yesterday, our community said goodbye to Maddox Hyde, the 14-year-old whose battle with cancer inspired people around the world.
Maddox did not care for a traditional funeral home feel and instead wanted to have a light and bright feeling.
In keeping with those wishes, his family invited everyone to come to the Chateau d’Argy in Brookville to pay tribute to his hobbies, show the thousands of things he received from around the world, and share their memories of him.
Maddox’s 150,000 cards, footballs, and other offers of care and comfort he received were be on display for all to see.
You can still send your sympathies and continuing support to the same address as many people sent Christmas cards to:

The memorial service for Maddox Hyde, the 14-year-old Reynoldsville boy who inspired people from around the world with his fight against cancer.Friends, family, classmates, and community members are welcome to visit the Chateau d’Argy in Brookville today until 8 p.m.

Just some of the many things people sent to Maddox Hyde, who battled neuroblastoma for a large portion of his…
Ever since Maddox Hyde was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2010, his school, the community, Make-A-Wish, and other nonprofits have been showing their support for his family.
You might remember just this summer, we caught up with Maddox right before he took a trip to Hawaii, courtesy of the nonprofit Jamie’s Dream Team. Make-A-Wish gave Maddox his wish of a shopping spree when he was first diagnosed.
After Maddox’s tumors have spread to the back base of his head in November of 2018, he and his family decided to stop treatments and allow Maddox to live the next few weeks of his life at home instead of in the hospital.
