MIA MOO FUNDay 2021!


Hey everybody! Mia here! I am so excited to tell you that we got to have our annual MIA MOO FUNDay again this year, and it was the best one yet! It looked a little different because we got to have it at my favorite place on earth - Camp Ch-Yo-Ca! Camp is pretty much my second home, and I was so happy to get to share it with these families. I also got to play Hostess and plan the entire day's activities myself, which was a huge honor and super fun! It was so great to be there for these families to help form a special community and get to hear the stories of other kids like me. 

Thanks so much for supporting this amazing day!  ~ Mia
The families who attended this year and lots of our volunteers. We couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers!
Photo Booth Fun!
Each of these kids represent a family who came with them.  We've helped 118 families so far.  We wish every single one of them could have come!
So thankful for parents who support me and this amazing cause!

Alexis (Lexie) is currently 9 years old and in 4th grade.  Lexie has been through eight surgeries so far for cleft related issues.  She is a spunky 9 year old who loves soccer and art and a tomboy at heart.  She loves to write her own short stories and illustrate them in her spare time.  She is a very strong little girl and handles all her surgeries like a champion with a big, brave face and attitude. She handles her surgeries and appointments better than most adults.  Lexie is a strong, fierce, and brave little girl with a heart of gold. 


Lily was born May of 2012.  She was 5 weeks early and was born with a complete bilateral cleft lip.  To our surprise, her palate was intact.  She was started on NAM treatments to align her gums more at 5 weeks of age.  We did weekly appointments for NAM along with all the other cleft appointments and baby appointments.  She had surgery to repair her lip October 24, 2012.  It went beautifully.  She had bone graft surgery March of 2020 (right before the craziness of the pandemic, like days before).  She is 9 years old and has only had these two surgeries due to being able to use the NAM.  She is active in Volleyball, Basketball and Dance.

"We are so grateful for the Mia Moo Fund.  The NAM was paid out of pocket by us.  Between that, and all the appointments, and time off we had to take, it was a financial burden for sure.  Not only did Mia Moo help with that, but we have made life long friends with the family, and so many other cleft families.  Thank you for all you do!" Kari (Lily's mom)
