Mia's 161st Blood Transfusion


Poor sweet Mia. Her counts were SO low and her Dr. Appointment wasn't
even until the following Monday.
Just by the way she was acting, I knew she wasn't herself. 



While Mia slept the whole morning, we had a visit from:



What a sweet letter from another family fighting for their
sons life...


Kindness and paying it forward for the win!


Thank you Hopekids for Mia's Amazon Gift Card
just in time for her birthday!


FINALLY feeling better after 2 units.
She never got out of the hospital bed because she was
so exhausted.


Once a year, Build a Bear comes to the hospital,
and Mia got a Bear and picked out an Army
outfit because she's tough!
- So are you Mia -


We had a nice surprise for lunch from 
Dad and Alyssa.



Then after a while it was time to go home!!
We couldn't be more grateful to the generous 
blood donors who keep Mia alive every 3 weeks.
What a gift of life.
No words could express my thankfulness!

Mia at the D'Backs -1st Pitch



Mia and her BFF Clare ready to go at the D'Backs Game!
The Mix 96.9 gave us all shirts to wear, SO awesome of them.



Ready to go on the field girls?


They really had so much fun!


Mia & Clare


Welcome to 90's night!


One of the cool parts was that Mia got to meet Sugar Ray
aka Mark McGrath since he's doing a 90's concert after the game.
SO FUN!


Pics pics pics!


Too cute...


Literally just hanging out on the baseball field.


Thanks to friends who took these for us!


Waving to the sweet lady who put the words on the back of our
shirts for free! Mia said she'd wave to her, so sweet.


Go Mia!


I'm sure Matt always thought he'd be the one to be pitching 
out there in the field...but no, it's Mia!



After, Mia had the catcher sign the ball and Mark McGrath!


Ok, mom...seriously...what are you saying??


Haha, so fun!


Nice to meet you Mark, you rocked the concert, loved it!


Elevator selfie!


Mia and Clare = ice cream

One day she will find her MATCH!


After the D'Backs sadly lost to the Cubs, we went outside
to the Pepsi VIP area for the 90's concert.


We had SO much fun!!! 
Mom and Dad might have had a little too much fun while feeling
old. Haha! Thank you so much to everyone who made this so awesome for us!
ESPECIALLY the Mathew Blades Show!!




BE SURE to watch this VIDEO of Mia's interview on the radio
and Mia throwing out the 1st pitch!! SO MUCH FUN!
