    FARMINGTON — When kids with cancer lace up the personalized shoes Madison Steiner hand paints for them, big smiles come to their brave faces, and for a moment they forget their battle against the illness.

    Since she launched Peach’s Neet Feet in July, Steiner, 21, has donated 55 shoes to children in 23 states through her grassroots cancer outreach. The colorful canvas shoes are emblazoned with the children’s names and what they love, from superheros to butterflies.
