My Story

Sofia's story is tough. She was diagnosed with rare T cell Leukemia, requiring three years of chemo. Three months before, she was diagnosed with a rare disorder called LCS and was treated with chemo & steroids, which didn't work. She was in radiation for three weeks straight, but the Leukemia spread to her lymph nodes.
