Make A Wish - Golf Tournament

Mia walked down the red carpet at The Boulder's Golf
Course benefitting Make A Wish AZ!
You look good on the red carpet Mia!

Make A Wish needed a 'Wish Dad' who could golf...
(Well, at least TRY and golf.)
With only 2 days notice we though it would be a fun event.

We love helping out Make A Wish Arizona -
They are AWESOME!

Mia high fived the golfers as they made their way to the course..
it was a fun morning helping out Make A Wish for future wish 
families, we are so happy to help because we know first
hand how amazing our wish trip was.

Be the Match - Comicon

Mia and I both were really excited for our first Comicon
experience at the Phoenix Convention Center - for Be The Match!

Little did we know, that Mia would be IN a comic book.

How cool is that?!! It looks just like her too.
The story is really neat, about how Mia needs a match 
for a bone marrow transplant.

The Be The Match booth was right next to the blood drive...which is exactly
what 'Mia's Marrow' is all about. We point people towards 2 things that are
'FREE' - Donating Blood & Donating Bone Marrow - to
help save lives.

Thanks UBSAZ - We sure love all your awesome workers!

Mia saying thank you to blood donors, she is so sweet!

Mia's #156 Blood Transfusion

Wow was Mia tired! She slept all morning.

We love her new tank the Ravel Brand girls sent to her!

It says, Spark Your Soul, meaning find someone
or people and help them. - Who inspires you?!
We inspired them to donate blood...

It's the only thing keeping Mia alive.

Mia's 155 Blood Transfusion

Never Stop Giving...
That's what Mia's shirt says.
(She designed it thru Paperclouds Apparel)
Never stop giving...of your time, blood, and bone marrow!
All these things help keep Mia alive.

"Never Stop Giving"

Can't forget about the homework either...
way to go Mia, even in the hospital she gets it done!

Loving the both our shirts Mia designed...

Always nice to see a sister when in the hospital. 

Mia took a trip up to Sophie's Place and jammed out
on the ukulele...with dad. All in all it was a good day!

Received: 31 donations & 2 power red = 33 units!

Banner Children's Golf Tournament - Mia The Emcee

Mia was asked to help be the Junior Emcee along side of 
Mathew Blades from the benefit the Banner Children's
Hopsital School Program...where no kids are left behind!
It was a great day, no too hot, up in Scottsdale at the JW Mariott
Wildfire Golf Club.

Mia and her school hospital teacher, Miss Virginia <3

Mia actually drove around the golf course and thanked 
everyone for participating and donating to such a great cause!

She's actually a really good driver!

We had fun together :) 

GO Mia...

We caught up with Tyson Nash from the AZ Coyotes...
he would like to have a Be The Match Drive at the 
Coyotes to help get more cheek swabs into the registry.

Mia is a star everywhere she goes!!

We need to find these photos!

It really was a great event.

We love the JW Marriott!!

Mia and Mathew Blades doing their thing!

Working the crowd for sure...

All the teams played great!

It was hard to miss these guys out on the course...
you could see them a mile away!!

Mia got to meet Randall McDaniel NFL hall of fame football
player turned teacher...SO cool. What a very nice guy!
Thank you to Banner Children's for allowing us to help with
fundraising efforts at the hospital we've been at for over 14 years.
We love you so much for keeping Mia alive all these years!!
VERY THANKFUL for all that you do!
