Miya is a happy 7 year old who will be 8 on November 21st! She loves the color blue and pretty much any type of dolls including Barbie and American Girl dolls. She was born with scoliosis. She has spent 2 years in body castings and 3 months in Halo traction. But that wasn't enough. One of the more recent surgeries she gas had was have a Magec rod installed in her back. This rod requires lengthening as she grows. So Miya and her family must visit Portland monthly to have the rod lengthened. She will battle this her whole life. Not only does she have scoliosis but she also has ADHD and other sensory conditions. But despite all of this she still remains joyful and courageous.
