My Story

Mia was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in November of 2011 just days before her second birthday. She's in treatment to hopefully keep her tumor (and spinal lesions) stable and we hope the chemotherapy shrinks them too. She's our hero, inspiration and brave warrior. We relish the times she can be a typical kid as we forge a path for our "new normal" lives. We would be nowhere without the continued love, prayers and support of our amazing family and friends.
