Sophie began showing symptoms that something was wrong when she began vomiting on April 14, 2011. After several trips to the pediatrician and ER, she was turned away each time while doctors dismissed her illness to something minor like a "reflux, virus, or ear infection". During her last visit to the ER, Sophie's mom made a call to her pediatrician and they agreed to finally admit her to the hospital. After a CT scan of her brain was performed it was determined that Sophie had a brain cancer known as Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor (PNET). She has been through a lot with surgery, treatment, and therapy to recover. Currently Sophie is in remission and therapy for her development, and we hope she continues to make progress in her battle back to being a healthy child.
