In partnership with The Kick Cancer Overboard Foundation and The Frances Foundation, The Mya Lin Terry Foundation is thrilled to be able to send Mya Warrior and Angel Families on an all expenses paid cruise to Bermuda on October 15th aboard Royal Caribbean's brand new ship The Anthem of the Seas.  So grateful to gift this experience to Warriors Jack M, Danicka, Joseph P, Nia, Avery, Rylee and the family of Angel Stephanie.  Thank you for making this gift possible.  Our family was gifted this experience in 2012, and I will never ever forget the experience.
