In 2018, Bourbon & Bowties will honor 6-year-old Mya White. Born in China, Mya was found as an infant, abandoned in a park. When doctors discovered a tumor in her pelvis, she was taken to an orphanage. As her tumor grew rapidly, the orphanage sought help from a special care unit. Upon seeing Mya’s story on the website of an international organization that sponsored the special care unit, Shelly and Hal White of Louisville, along with their four children, decided to adopt her, undeterred by her diagnosis of stage 4 cancer. Norton Children’s Hospital and local pediatric physicians agreed to assume Mya’s medical care, making it possible for her to get a medical visa to come to the United States. In May 2013, Mya arrived in Louisville. She underwent 10 months of intense treatment, including chemotherapy, radiation and two 10-hour surgeries that ultimately removed all the cancer. The Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center at Norton Children’s Hospital became a “home away from home” for Mya’s family. Three years since the end of her treatment, Mya remains cancer-free and is enjoying the life of a typical kindergartner.

An exclusive Vineyard Vines bow tie and tie and an exclusive Bourbon and Bowties bangle have been designed in Mya’s honor. They will be available for purchase at the event and are presented by River Road Asset Management.

Each year, Bourbon & Bowties honors a child treated at Norton Children’s Hospital. Read the stories of our past honorees.
