Pink For Mia

Mia Grace Marrone
April 29, 2010 - July 25, 2010

Please wear pink today in memory of Mia Grace Marrone - it is her 3 month birthday.

...She fought a courageous battle against HLHS in her short 87 days of life.

You can easily participate in making this memory for her parents.

Let's show her parents, Jennifer (Cordes) & Ray Marrone, how many lives a 3 month old can touch!

Take a picture of yourself wearing pink (shirt, outfit, headband, tie, etc) - include your kids, dog, cat, entire family! You can choose to hold her name written on a piece of paper or you can get creative and spell it out however you like... take a picture of that, too! Please just participate!

Please email all photos to

{All photos will be assembled in a photobook}

Please invite ALL of your friends, regardless of whether or not you know this family personally - let's make this HUGE! Post it as your facebook status, tweet about it, blog about - just get the word out!

If you'd like to learn more about Mia's journey with HLHS, you can read it here:

Personal Note: I had the honor of meeting Jenni and Ray on Facebook and going through this journey with them. We met up at CHOP and I consider them dear friends. Mia was a twin. Her brother Madden has a healthy heart.Jenni and Ray also have a little boy named Coal. Mia was the Rock Star at CHOP and was home very quickly. Her passing came as a shock and she will always hold a piece of my heart. I love you Marrone family and will always be here for you. Fly high with the angels baby girl and send your parents love and peace as they walk this journey without you. One day you will be reunited but until then you will always be in our hearts!
