Tis’ the season of giving:  A special gift from (10) year old Mya Hernandez, a 5th grader at Miller Grove ISD was received by CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital over the Christmas holiday. 

Mya’s mom Nicki Dutton, told us that Mya had been saving her money for several months to give to someone in need. 

She was inspired by her little brother who was born with a heart defect, which made her want to give back to help kids and help others who are facing health struggles. 

Mya selflessly emptied her entire piggy bank to give to the hospital toward patients in need.  We are humbled to simply be the vessel for her gift.  What a wonderful way to give back and uplift others!
