Sophia's Story:

• Sophia is a sweet little girl with sparkly eyes and a smile that lights up a room.

• At 11-months-old, Sophia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) cancer.

• ALL cancer is a very aggressive and dangerous type of blood/bone cancer that requires immediate medical attention.

• Sophia started treatment on August 27, 2020. Her medical treatment has included several blood transfusions, chemotherapy, a central line placement, steroids, feeding tubes, and bone marrow biopsies.

• On October 6, 2020, Sophia and her family received great news; the first full round of chemotherapy and steroids worked, her bone marrow biopsy came back cancer free.

• However, Sophia will continue with several more rounds of chemotherapy treatment in order to keep the cancer from returning.

• Sophia and her family have lived at Randall Children’s Hospital for over 100 days during this medical journey.

• Sophia has proven to be a mighty little warrior and continues to fight this battle with much determination.

• Sophia will be adopted as a Sparrow to St. Mary’s School. St. Mary’s Students will work hard to raise money for Sophia through sponsored community service.
