Maya's March is named after ten year old Maya Murphy who was born with a rare genetic disorder called Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia.
Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia is a rare genetic disorder affecting the structure or function of cilia. Cilia are microscopic hair-like formations that "sweep" mucous toward the nose and throat where it can be coughed out.
The Hospital for Sick Kids has been a fantastic resource, support and strength for Maya, her family and friends. Their expertise, quality care and willingness to work with the family has been such a blessing.
Maya's March is a 5 km walk raising funds to benefit PCD research at SickKids hospital. Maya's March will take place June 5, 2016 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
