Miya had one last wish. She wanted to have a drive-by parade. Miya was fighting a brain tumor and was unable to have visitors due to the threat of COVID-19.

The teenager's wish was scheduled to come true this Saturday. Miya passed away Thursday, April 30th.

The 13-year-old was described as funny, strong and caring. She was diagnosed with Anaplastic astrocytoma, a malignant brain cancer, in 2019.

Today the community came together to make Miya's last wish some true. Hundreds of cars, motorcyclists, law enforcement officers from across Colorado brought the drive-by parade to her family and friends outside her Thornton home.
