JULIE DEY - Team Mya
This August 3rd-4th I will be attempting to run one mile every hour for 24 consecutive hours in the Anytime Fitness 24 in 24 Challenge.
This will be my second year doing the 24 in 24. This is a hard event. It takes physical and emotional strength. I'm tired & hungry. I just want to lay down and sleep. I keep going because for 1 day I'm uncomfortable but for these amazing kids and their families every day is challenging. And yet they still smile, laugh, wish, and keep going. These kids are my heroes.
On September 12th 2013, ten-month-old Myalee went into her first surgery to remove a protruding lump on the left side of her neck that turned out to be a malignant tumor. She began her first of four rounds of four different types of chemo in November 2013. All in all, she had a total of seven surgeries. Myalee greets each day with a big smile, she is a happy, loving, imaginative, spunky and bossy little girl.
