In memory of our son Stephen, Miggy’s Gift, Inc. was founded in March, 2018. Our non-profit is committed to creating awareness of Melanoma Skin Cancer. In just six months, we have donated Sunscreen dispensers to Boys Scout Troop 840 and Kiwanis of Little Havana Summer Camp for low income children. In addition, we have visited three hospitals donating the Mighty Miggy book, hospital gowns, and stuffed doggies to pediatric cancer patients, established a Scholarship Grant at Miami Dade College to a Video Game Development student, and have spoken and distributed reading material about Melanoma to several civic groups stressing the dangers of UV Radiation exposure.
Our goal is to be able to continue educating our community about skin cancer but ultimately we would like to have an online program about skin cancer in every Miami Dade and Broward county public school. We feel educating our youth about the importance of prevention, self-check and early detection is of the utmost importance.
In order to have the funds to continue with our mission, we need your help! We have joined forces with another organization named One Change, Inc. who also advocates for Melanoma Skin Cancer. Together we have planned a one mile walk for Sunday, November 11, 2018 at Coral Reef Park. We have named our event “Together we will BEAT Melanoma”. Please contact us if you want to participate.
