Myra Camino perfectly exemplifies the heart of Big Brothers Big Sisters. She deeply cares about children, gives selflessly, and remains committed to her Little Sister Saleen in spite of any adversity that may come her way. 

A survivor of Stage 4 Breast Cancer diagnosed in 2016, Myra underwent aggressive treatment of the disease all the while continuing to care for her husband and two young boys, working as a part time client advancement coordinator at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County, and of course, maintaining a fully-committed and caring relationship with her Little Sister Saleen. 

“I go on faith every day,” says Myra. “I try to wake up each day with a grateful heart, and I hope that by seeing me go through this battle with cancer, Saleen will learn that she, too, can be strong and overcome anything.” 

As a three-time Big Sister along with her positive commitment to children and ongoing desire to improve their lives, Myra certainly exemplifies the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters. We are extremely proud to have Myra representing our Florida BBBS agencies as our 2018 Big Sister of the Year.
