Mia Fernanda R.

Little Mia was born to Catalina and Fernando on August 4, 2009, and passed away from Leukemia on May 27, 2010. She had two older siblings: Jennifer and Luis. “Mia Fernanda, we love you very much and you will always be in our hearts,” her family says. Mia’s family laughs when they recall how she loved to play peek-a-boo. Her mother remembers Mia as being utterly without complaint, and an inspiration to everyone around her. “When we think of Mia, we love how she was always smiling and never showed that she was in pain. She was a strong little angel who gave us strength and was always smiling to any person who came to visit her.”

Mia’s family would like to thank the Ronald McDonald House, the Max Foundation, and the Childhood Cancer Careline for all their support. “And thank you everyone in Leavenworth who helped us in the hard times our family went through.”
