Soleil's Story:Soleil is a happy, chatty 15-month-old who loves music and to dance more than anything! She loves toys that make music, books, dressing up and her favorite color is pink.
In May of 2020, Soleil became sick and started vomiting. Doctors believed it was just a virus, but when it continued for more than six weeks, her parents knew something was not right and took her back to the hospital.
A CT scan revealed that Soleil had a brain tumor and immediate brain surgery was scheduled. On June 4, two days later, she was transferred to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital where doctors removed the brain tumor.
The next phase of Soleil’s treatments consisted of months of chemotherapy and multiple rounds of stem cell transplants to help her body fight any possible return of this rare type of brain cancer never seen before by doctors.
These treatments have been difficult for Soleil and her family. They have spent more time in the hospital than at home.
However, Soleil is strong. Although she has endured a great deal in her young life, she continues to be a warrior and an inspiration to those around her as she fights this battle.
Soleil will be adopted as a Sparrow to Reynolds High School. Students will work hard to not only love and support her but also raise money for Soleil through sponsored community service for medical and daily expenses.
