Hi, I’m Sophi…

I’m 8 years old. I live in Kansas City, Missouri and I have two siblings – Desmond (age 1) and Jude (age 5). I enjoy playing on my iPad and doing math games and Pokemon GO! I love The Descendants, making art and dancing. In fact, my family has dance parties all the time. I want to be an oncologist and an artist when I grow up.

At age of 6, I was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma.

As a Candlelighters NYC kid, my favorite experiences include walking the runway in the 2016 NYC Bridal Week and the Halloween party at Sugar Factory. My parents say their favorite part of Candlelighters NYC is knowing that there is a community of support…a family always ready to celebrate kids.

…And my family uses these words to describe Candlelighters NYC: Generous, loving, village, support
