Her goal was 1; she raised for 2.
What can you do?
She’s only 13 years old, but Mia wanted to do something to honor a dear friend of the family who died from late-stage breast cancer. She heard about different organizations raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and realized she could do just that!
Her goal was to raise enough money to pay for just one mammogram.
With a little help from her family, she created pink “Team Care” bracelets and began selling them for $2 a piece.
When Mia came to The Rose to present her fundraiser, along with her incredibly proud family, everyone was so moved! With a huge smile, Mia handed me her donation; enough for two mammograms! The staff cheered, most were in tears, especially me.
She’s only 13, but wise beyond her years. The mammograms she sponsored will give someone else a future; the future her friend never had.
So when you think there isn’t much you can do, or you wonder if your gift will make much of a difference, remember Mia. She is definitely my gift this holiday season. Let your donation be the gift of someone’s life.
