Pablove Across America 2011 Day 5 Morning Dedication: Mia Deligeannis

Mia Deligeannis, better known as "Super Mia" was diagnosed with High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia March 2009 at 2 years old. Despite a bone marrow transplant she has relapsed twice and is now not responding to chemotherapy. Mia is unable to get on trials, and is now undergoing palliative care. We'll pedal extra hard for Mia today.

Zoey's mom, Heather said...

Well, you know that leukemia is our beast. Or rather Zoey's, and this month marks 3 years since her diagnosis. And when I hear of stories like Mia's, my heart goes immediately to my throat. Not for fear of my child but for that child, who is fighting so hard each day just to be. Just to be here. Today love and light goes out to Mia and her family.
