Description

*** To find out how you can help, email: hopeforsophie@gmail.com *** There were 1.37 million cancers in the U.S. last year. 9,200 were in children age 14 or younger. 313 of those diagnosed were Rhabdomyosarcomas. Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS) is a soft tissue sarcoma that is thought to generate in the connective tissues of the skeletal muscles. Survival rates are between 5% – 20%. It is the most severe form of the disease. This is Sophie’s affliction. Her best hope is a Haploidentical Stem Cell Transplant, which will increase her odds of survival 40%-50%. The cause of Rhabdomyosarcoma is still unknown. In 2010 the American Cancer Society directed less than $0.01 (1 penny) to childhood cancer research for every dollar of public support. That means that less than 1% of the funds raised are used for the research needed to cure childhood cancers. One percent. Children don’t have a voice. It is up to us to “speak” for them. Stand by Sophie and by all children whose childhoods have been affected by cancer and give them a powerful gift to keep fighting – Hope.
