Children diagnosed with cancer every year
Mya courageously fought Neuroblastoma
How it Started…
“Miracles for Mya” started as a fundraiser name, from the moment that Mya was diagnosed, to help raise funds for her and her family. Our sweet Mya needed a miracle to help her fight this terrible disease, cancer.
Later, it was used as a team name for fundraising events that Mya and her friends and family participated in throughout her journey, i.e., St. Baldrick’s, CureSearch, etc.
How it Continues…
Mya was always very generous, kind, and appreciative in her happiest times as well, and always impressively, in her somber times. In remembrance of Mya, her friends and family decided to carry forward with her spirit, kindness, and generosity by helping those that fight the fight she always smiled through.
Since Mya gained her angelic wings, the name “Miracles for Mya” has become a tradition and it seemed appropriate to continue the name as it has become synonymous with Mya’s legacy. Instead of praying for a miracle for Mya, we carry out ‘miracles’ for other families, on Mya’s behalf. To do this, we give gifts to children and families in hopes to bring some light to them in their greatest time of need.
How you Can Help…
Every child deserves toys that brighten their day, but even more so the children who face the brave battle against cancer every day. Throughout the year we make pilgrimages to local hospitals and distribute the toys that have been acquired through donation or purchased with the funds raised through donations. This is where gifts of kindness to the organization are so important. Without your help and support, we couldn’t continue to provide great gifts to so many families in need. We are always accepting donations of all types, throughout the year, to make these children’s lives brighter.
