2018 Honorees


Micah--no textMicah was a smart, loving 3-year-old from Boise who enjoyed playing games with his big brother, making others laugh, and using his imagination.  He loved tacos, the color red, and playdoh.  Micah was diagnosed with leukemia in November and grew his angel wings in March.  He will be greatly missed by his dad, mom, and big brother–and all who were blessed enough to know this precious boy.


Mia—a smiley, spunky, athletic 12-year-old from Twin Falls—is always up for a competition with her four siblings.  When this outgoing 7th-grader is not on the softball Mia no textfield or basketball court, she can be found cheering for Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, watching the Ellen Show, or playing the piano or guitar.  In July 2017, everything changed for Mia when she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her femur and knee, with metastasis to her lungs.  Since that time, Mia has undergone chemotherapy and surgery to remove the tumors and lower part of her leg.  Mia has recently received her prosthetic leg–which she has named “Cleo”–and has begun intensive physical therapy.
