Budded on Earth, To Bloom in Heaven
The Mya Lin Terry Foundation is a 100% Volunteer, Charitable, Non-profit Organization created to honor Mya’s memory and to continue the legacy of this amazing little girl.
Mya's Run For Gold
Probably my most favorite part of the day was the Super Hero Toddler Trot...But that wasn't the only success of the day.  We collectively raised over $15,000.00 for TMLTF and 242Forever, supporting children and families battling cancer.  The day could not have been more beautiful, the Warrior and Angel Wall highlighted the reason both foundations exist, the bands were outstanding, the turnout fantastic, the food was a big yum, and the vendors and energy was at an all time high.  We would like to thank you for your continued support of Mya's Run For Gold!  Stay tuned for The Save The Date notice for next year's event.  We have some surprises in store, and we are bringing back the 5k!
TMLTF Partnership
On October 6th, The Mya Lin Terry Foundation participated in the Delaware Valley Association of Child Life Professionals (DVACLP) Conference, hosted by the K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital At Jersey Shore University Medical Center.  We were able to network with hundreds of Child Life Specialists and Child Life Students from Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.  Participants learned of the various opportunities and services provided by TMLTF, to our Warrior and Angel Families.  Many new, and mutually beneficial partnerships, were born.   


TMLTF has created a Yearbook to introduce you to our Warrior and Angels.  We are presently supporting 78 Warriors and 12 Angels and Families.  Click Here:  and select Yearbook.        


Thanks To You, TMLTF has Gifted $352,685.36 to Date.
