When Sofie was 3 years old, she got an eye infection that wouldn’t heal. Eventually, her doctor ordered an MRI, and uncovered a tumor under Sofie’s eye. Two days later, Sofie received a surgery to remove the tumor, and then chemotherapy and radiation began. Sofie traveled all the way to Seattle for 26 weeks of radiation treatment.
Throughout this experience, Sofie remained strong. One thing that never waivered was her love for Disney princesses. She doesn’t have a favorite princess, but instead loves them all; so when Sofie found out she qualified for a wish she knew exactly where she would go. She wished to meet her favorite characters at Walt Disney World®!
During her wish, Sofie had a blast meeting each of her beloved princesses. “She enjoyed seeing the princesses and characters so much she said she wanted to be one!” said Sofie’s mom. Sofie also enjoyed all of the rides at the park, particularly the Seven Dwarfs roller coaster!
During one of the days of her wish trip, Sofie decided to go to the beach. She loved playing in the ocean and getting splashed by the waves. “It was nice to get away!” said Sofie’s mom “We got to do what she wanted to do.”
Sofie is now in remission and is enjoying the activities of a typical four-year-old like running around, coloring, swimming, and of course, playing her beloved princesses games!
