Mia Oscarsson was 7 when she had her first ear surgery. Four surgeries were planned in total, where surgeons took cartilage from her rib cage and used it to create the outer portion of her ear.
But these surgeries to reconstruct a birth defect didn't stop the Edmonds resident from finding and exploring lifelong goals and passions.
