Sophia is my granddaughter, a beautiful 5 year old girl who has been diagnosed with atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, it is a highly malignant (cancerous) tumor. It has spread throughout her brain and into her spine. She has already undergone 1 brain surgery to remove the majority of the tumor but it is still in other places of her brain, in her spine and possibly in her kidneys. She is normally a very happy, spunky little girl, and this battle is very hard for her. We are starting this site in hope of helping her family with all the additional expenses they are incurring. Her father is a single father and is unable to work due to the circumstances. Please keep Sophia in your thoughts and prayers and share her battle. Sophia has only been given a 20% chance of beating this.
