Mya's Miracle

Mya Henderson was diagnosed with two types of leukemia when she was just seven months old.

Mya is now eight months old.

The neighborhood association where Mya lives organized Mya's Miracle on Saturday at Phil Moore Park to help Mya's family pay for her medical expenses.

Countless neighbors, community organizations, and businesses showed their support for Mya in a variety of ways.

The Bowling Green Fire Department even let children become firefighters for the day to raise money.

"When there's a need in the community, we usually try to step up to the plate, but this kinda hits home for us because Evan Henderson is one of our firefighters and Evan is Mya's father. He's one of ours and we wanted to come out and try to help them and do what we can to help Mya win the battle", says Marlee Boenig, with the Bowling Green Fire Department.

Mya is currently undergoing chemotherapy at Vanderbilt Hospital, awaiting a bone marrow transplant.

All of the money raised at the event will go toward Mya's medical expenses.
