Mia is one of our gorgeous Brainwave kids! She is an affectionate and cuddly little lady with a great love of music.

Mia suffered severe brain damage at birth and has cerebral palsy, vision impairment, slight hearing loss, epilepsy, and difficulty with temperature regulation. Mia is unable to walk or talk and requires a feeding tube. Despite facing these challenges, Mia has a megawatt smile and lights up any room. She is a delightful little girl treasured by her family and friends.

Mia’s family approached Brainwave for funding assistance as part of the Equipment and Therapies Program. Mia needed an essential piece of equipment, a head support collar. Mia has poor head control, and the support collar helps her maintain a better posture allowing for easier breathing by ensuring her airways remain open.

Mia’s family were grateful for Brainwave’s support, “We would like to say a huge thanks to everyone involved with the funding and the program to help people in our situation.”

We are thrilled to have assisted Mia, and on behalf of our Brainwave community, we would like to extend our sincerest thanks to our partners and supporters for their ongoing commitment to our organisation. Our work wouldn’t be possible without your generosity.
