The Yohe Family:
THON Child: Maddie Yohe
Parents: Sarah and Josh Yohe
Siblings: Isabelle and Emmersyn (Emme)
Apollo is fortunate enough to have been paired with the Yohe family since 2019. We had an amazing time getting to know Maddie, Isabelle, and Sarah at THON 2020! Maddie was known for her love of cheer, Harry Potter, and The Flash. Some of our favorite days include those where we got to Zoom with Maddie and Isabelle and got to play games during the Apollo Game Show. In June 2021, our beautiful warrior crossed the rainbow bridge and became our THON angel. Maddie truly embodied the ‘Never Give Up’ spirit and always stayed true to herself. Even through her toughest times she would not be afraid to give us sass if we disagreed with her. Her spirit is carried with each member of Apollo as we are reminded why we NGU.
To help Maddie's spirit live on, we have created "Moment for Maddie" cards that can be picked up from the Apollo office in the HUB. These cards help spread not only her story, but also some happiness into the world.
We also bond with Maddie's family and have many events and experiences to strengthen our bond with each of the family members. Isabelle has just turned 16 and tells us all of her high school drama, Emme is rocking Pre-K and learning to read at 4 years old, and Sarah loves sharing her mug collection with us and updating us on all of her crazy stories.
