Mia Connor's Heroes
Mia is 14-years-old. She was diagnosed with ALL in 2016.

We give a child their own “Be A Hero” shirt after their cancer diagnosis. Those three words – “Be A Hero” – reassure them as they start their journey. We asked our heroes to send us a picture of them wearing their special “Be A Hero” shirt while staying at home during the coronavirus. See who is showing off their “Be A Hero” shirt. Pictured are heroes who are currently in treatment and some who are survivors now.

Click on their photo and meet our heroes.
