    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Team Mia will be doing:
    Saturday 22nd July - 26.2 mile marathon walk
    Sunday 10th September - The Great North Run

    In October 2016, 11 year old Mia was taken to hospital with stomach pains and weakness in her legs. A scan revealed a mass on her spine and within hours Mia was transferred to Manchester Children’s Hospital and underwent surgery to remove the mass. Unfortunately surgery revealed that the mass was in fact one of five cancerous tumours, two in her brain and three on her spine. 

    Surgeons worked for 9 hours to remove part of the largest tumour, however it wasn’t until Mia woke up that they leant the full extent of Mia’s condition. Mia lost the use of both of her legs and feet, bladder and bowels, a devastating diagnosis for Mia, her friends and family.

    Mia is such a strong individual and will not give up without a fight. In less than a year she has beaten cancer!!!!!!!

    Now that she is “better” people think she is fine, however the unfortunate reality is that she is not. Mia still has to try and adapt to her new life in a wheelchair. Unfortunately with such a life changing disability comes cost. Mia and her family need to move house as their current home is not suitable. Mia currently has to sleep in the living room meaning no privacy, she has to have bed baths as their bathroom is upstairs. Mia is also going to need specialist equipment and care, potentially for the rest of her life.

    Hopefully we can raise enough to help with essential house modifications to their future home.

    Please help support this remarkable young lady. Thank you for the love and support Mia has already received.
