Parent’s Of Dying Girl Hope To Raise Money To Help Her Favorite Place

DANA POINT (CBS) — Their little girl is dying. But an Orange County couple is using their grief to honor their daughter.

Maddie James has an inoperable brain tumor.  Her favorite place is the Ocean Institute in Dana Point.

Now her parents are trying to raise $1 million. The money can’t save their daughter, unfortunately. But they’re hoping the money can pay for a new dock and learning center at the Institute and name it in her honor.
