Who Are Team Mikayla?
A charity inspired by a 11 year old child who has being fighting brain cancer from the age of 4. Mikayla told her mum she would like to help other children with cancer. From an ill child's request Team Mikayla was born.

Raise funds to provide wishes to children who have been diagnosed with cancer or leukaemia and receive treatment via the Kamrans Ward of the JR Hospital in Oxford. wishes include gifts for the ill child or a day out for the whole family. Parents are able to request an application form by contacting us via Email or Telephone (see contact details).
Activities like fetes, raffles etc, or large sponsored events for example sponsored sky dive to events further afield like a trip to Africa where our team climbed Kilimanjaro. All events whether large or small, all add to the pot of funds we use to buy wishes of children fighting cancer.
