Mia first helped raise funds for the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation in Oct. of 2018 in an event called Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer which raised over $70,000 for people fighting cancer. Mia learned a lot about what this disease is and raised over $1000 herself thanks to generous friends, family, and even strangers.
Since participating in this great cause, Mia's Godmother (Tara) was diagnosed with cancer. Mia visited her in the hospital the day she found out, and stroked her head when she lost her hair. Mia prayed for Tara and Tara's Mom (also fighting the cancer battle simultaneously) every night and really got to understand what this terrible disease does to a person. Happily Tara is in remission, but her Mom has started treatments all over again.
With a better understanding of cancer and it's effects on people she loves, Mia wants to raise money for cancer through the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation again. Though we are just getting back on the ice, there is not a Sk8 event yet near us, so she is going to participate in the Virtual 5K and is asking for your support through prayer and finances to help elimin8 this disease. Please consider donating to this worthy cause and help her fight cancer!
