Melanie and Rick Vega opened Maddie’s Pumpkin Patch in dedication to Maddie, 4, who was in the ICU when she was a year old. After battling pneumonia for two weeks and being sedated the entire time because of her age, she underwent two successful surgeries that allowed her to go home for the start of fall. In honor of Maddie’s miracle, Maddie’s Pumpkin Patch was born!
