She'd come a long way since her diagnosis and felt she had some knowledge to offer others in her situation. She chose to give back.
In December 2018, with help from Sobeys/Safeway, Sophia packed up care packages of her own creation: toiletries like toothbrushes, lotion and hand sanitizer; gum; gift cards for coffee and groceries. And a book written by Sophia, full of tips she's learned through her own journey. This month, Sophia will distribute those packages to new diagnosed patients at the Stollery Children's Hospital and the Cross-Cancer Institute.
Sophia's wish to turn her own experience into something she can share to help others is an amazing gift. We're grateful to everyone who helped make it happen!
