Meet Angel Myah
Myah was a loving 4 year old. She loved singing, dancing, listening to music and playing instruments. Her teacher once said, "I love Myah. She is always singing!" She loved singing songs about Jesus. Myah also loved dressing up and play- ing pretend. Her favorite things to pretend were being a mommy, princess, Madeline, restaurant, shoe store or nurse. She loved patterns especially... when it came to her
finger nail polish, jewelry and outfits. She started with the color of her shoes, then her socks had to be another color and the pattern would continue all the way to her hat with the two alternating colors. She couldn't leave the house without wearing a pattern. She was very strong willed and liked directing others. She could color, water color or paint for hours on end. Her favorite part of artwork was the reward of giving her art to the people she loved. She loved school and was friends with eve- ryone she met. The easiest way to become one of Myah's best friends was to read her a children's book. She loved having stories read to her. She had a strong compassion and love for children with special needs. She loved swimming, and anything outdoors. Her favorite colors were purple and pink. She loved anything girly or sparkly. She enjoyed school, sign language, and learning to write new letters, numbers and words. If you ever asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she would say, "a mommy, doctor, preacher, artist, singer, teacher, chef." Her most prized possession was her "favorite blankie". It gave her the courage she needed to get through the toughest parts of treatment. But over everything she loved in the world, there was nothing she loved more than her family...her mom, dad, brother, grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles.
Two months after Myah's fourth birthday, Myah was diagnosed with DIPG, an inoperable, incurable, malignant brain tumor. After 10 months of fighting, Myah lost her battle with cancer. She earned Angel Wings on December 5, 2011. Myah had a huge impact on anyone that met her. She is deeply loved and missed by all who knew her.
