Superhero Saturday: Maria Ochoa and Mia’s Miracles

0

This Superhero Saturday, we are honored to recognize an amazing local nonprofit organization here in Palm Beach County: Mia’s Miracles.

“MIA’S MIRACLES PROVIDES SMALL BLESSINGS WITH LARGE IMPACTS, BRINGING SMILES AND POSITIVITY TO CHILDREN AND FAMILIES FACING CHALLENGING CIRCUMSTANCES.”

Mia’s Miracle’s President and Founder, Maria Ochoa, and her husband, PGA Tour Player Camilo Villegas, started Mia’s Miracles to honor the memory of their late daughter.

They have partnered with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital to create numerous programs, including the opening of Mia’s Serenity Space for Staff, which provides a tranquil resting place for health heroes who are providing patient care. They also recently reunited a young cancer patient with his mother, who had been unable to travel due to the pandemic and financial hardship, before Christmas.

Mia’s Miracles is making a big impact by providing blessings to families experiencing medical crises, here and in Colombia, in ways like: providing transportation for parents taking their child to medical appointments, funding for uninsured medical supplies, and more.

To help support Mia’s Miracles, you can make a donation here. Miami-based lifestyle brand De La Heart is also donating a portion of sales this month to Mia’s Miracles, and you can shop the collection here.
