Do You Remember Mya?

Thanks to supporters like you, we were able to help Mya and her family during a very difficult time.

Eight-year-old Ne’Mya spent so much time in the hospital during treatment for T-cell leukemia that her mother Nekisha couldn’t work. Nekisha had to be with her daughter. She had to be there for blood transfusions, chemotherapy, and spinal treatments.

Of course, this led to financial challenges. Paying the utilities was difficult. Just filling up the car with gas was a struggle.

The Icla da Silva Foundation was able to support Mya and her family both emotionally and financially.


We were able to do this because of you.

Thank you for your support. Thank you for helping us provide a small grant so Mya’s family could focus on her treatment.

Please consider helping us support more patients like Mya.

Help us save more lives.
