Let me introduce you to 8 year old Myla, a beautiful young lady from Scotia who recently found out that she has Thyroid Cancer. As a parent this is something I could never imagine happening to either of my daughters, as I'm sure Myla's parents never imagined that it would happen to them. Never the less this has now become their reality and they will be facing many challenges in the future, one being the cost of treatment and travel expenses to get Myla the treatment that she needs.
This is where you might be able to help them out -
On Feb 3rd, this Saturday, there is going to be the "For The Love of Myla Valentine's Day Pageant" at Dance Force right on Broadway in Schenectady starting at 11am. The event is going to be for both boys and girls of all ages and ALL proceeds will go directly to Myla's family.
Entry fee is only $25 plus $5 per optional awards, best eyes, best hair, most photogenic. Every contestant will receive a crown as well as gift bags with goodies. It's totally a NON glitz pageant, there isn't a talent portion of the competition. You still have time to enter or get your child entered.
This is meant to be a fun event, especially since Myla was wanting to do a pageant so bad before she got sick.
