Mia Nicole Sidorakis, 31 months old of Wall passed away on Wednesday, May 23, 2018 after a 9 month battle with ATRT (Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor, a cancer that affects about 3 children out of a million) with her ever loving family by her side. Mia was a fun loving, sassy, full of life little girl who was smart beyond her years and adored Minnie Mouse. She fought this extremely rare disease with such resiliency. No matter what she was going through Mia always found a way to smile through the storm. It was once said, “Sometimes, real Superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles.”
Mia Nicole is survived by her loving parents David and Kristen Sidorakis of Wall; her beloved maternal grandparents Richard “G” and Cathie “Nani” Semansky of Wall and her beloved paternal grandparents David “Pop” and Deborah “Meme” Sidorakis of Point Pleasant. She is also survived by her two aunts and an uncle, Nicole and Steve Egan and Victoria Sidorakis; and three cousins Madison, Kenadi and Grant all of Point Pleasant.
