My name is Michael Terry I am the father of Mya Lin Terry. Mya was a courageous and strong Warrior who has fought so many battles of cancer since October of 2007 at the age of 5. Mya has received 3 Bone Marrow transplants 2 @St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. She beat so many odds and thanks to St Judes she was able to have an extra year plus of quality living until she relapsed in August 2012. After extensive treatments and organ failures, Mya lost her battle in the ICU at St Judes on April 10th 2013 at the age of 10 years old.
My team "Mya's Warriors" consists of friends and family who have fundraised over $40,000 in last 6 years for St Judes.
This year July 7th 2018 at Raceway Park in Englishtown NJ @ 1130am , My team, Mya's Warriors will participate in THE RUGGED MANIAC in her honor.
I will always celebrate Mya and we will always support and raise for ST JUDES to carry on Mya's legacy. It’s never easy to see a loved one lose there battle to this horrible disease. Especially our children. I think of her everyday and I wanna do what I can to help The children of St Jude’s and to this amazing hospital in there pursuit to find a cure.
"fight till ya cant fight no more'', ''Never Ever Give Up'' (NEGU) are the words Mya taught us.

How your donation helps:
* Thanks to donors like you, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
* Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago.
Together so we can help St. Jude change the world.
Thank you for all your continuous support over the years Michael R Terry (Mya's Dad) Captain of Mya's Warriors
