From rainbow coloured ribbons to cake sales and fun runs. The story of this brave little girl has touched the hearts of the nation. Mia Chambers, from Merthyr Tydfil, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer at just four years old. A campaign begun to raise enough money to send Mia overseas to ensure she has access to the vital treatment to combat her aggressive form of cancer.
“This monster will not beat us and we will do everything in our power to make sure it stays away” -Josh and Kirsty, Mia’s Mum and Dad.
On 15th July around 100 people took to the streets of Merthyr to raise money for this exceptional little girl. Ricky Norman’s annual walk which aids the fundraising of numerous charities, had decided to dedicate 2017 to Mia.
At 10am the participants of the walk left the Gurnos social club and lined the roads with smiles, love and colour until reaching its finish line at Ynysowen RFC, where refreshments took place.
Juggy and the walkers commented; ‘We would like to thank Mr. Bailey and the staff at the Trade Centre Wales for their continued support. Without the help from TCW we would not be able to remain and grow the event year on year, raising the necessary funds needed to support a wonderful little girl like Mia.’
Dan Burt the marketing assistant at The Trade Centre Wales said; ‘Being a part of Mia’s journey is very special. For anyone to have to go through something like this at such an early age can’t be easy, so when we heard about this story it was an easy decision to support event that took place’.
It is clear to see from the multiple events taking place that Mia has a strong network and a lot of support around her. However, if you would like to help continue this support for this brilliant little girl you can visit ‘Mia Chambers Journey’ and donate and find out more information via the link.
