In November of last year, Maddy had a well documented sledding accident. She suffered a broken right ankle. This would not be necessarily noteworthy except this was the third time Maddy had broken her right leg. So it is not surprising in the video below that Maddy knew immediately that her ankle was broken.

Maddy's treatment was pretty conventional. She was whisked off to the ER in her family vehicle. Surgery was required to reduce the fracture and Maddy was placed in a stylish short leg cast for six weeks.

Maddy came out of surgery in her red cast. With her history of leg injuries, Maddy was an ace with crutches. She documented her recovery from the injury and her difficulties painting with a cast on her leg in a series of videos.

After six weeks, Maddy's cast was removed and she was placed in a walking boot.

Maddy's first experience with broken bones and casts occurred when Maddy was 13. She required extensive surgery to repair a broken tibia and femur. Her right leg was broken in a high impact car crash. Because of the location of the breaks, Maddy's leg was only casted briefly.

Maddy started collecting hardware in her leg at a young age.

In 2016, Maddy followed up with her second break. This injury occurred at camp during a game of capture the flag. Maddy snapped her tibia in half. In spite of the gruesome nature of the injury, doctors were able to set Maddy's leg manually. She spent 8 weeks in a full leg cast followed by a series of below the knee casts. After a year, the hardware was removed from her tibia.
