Valentine’s Sale for Sophie
Help to raise funds for Sophie’s life saving neuroblastoma treatment overseas.
Crafters and artists are working hard to make handmade products to sell at the Valentine’s Sale for Sophie. All funds raised will support ‘Sophie’s fight’. It’s a family friendly event with live music, henna painting and activities for the kids.
There will be Valentine’s gifts, plants, sweet treats, family fun and more.
Sophie (aged 19 months) was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in 2019, a rare and aggressive childhood cancer affecting about 40 children in Australia each year. Sophie’s cancer was classified as ‘high-risk’, given the extent to which it had spread throughout her body. Since her diagnosis, Sophie has endured months of chemotherapy, scans, biopsies and a major operation to remove the primary Neuroblastoma in her abdomen.
After all her treatment in Australia is completed, there is the very real chance that Sophie’s Neuroblastoma could relapse (come back) and unfortunately there are very few options for treatment here in Australia. A clinical trial in New York is using cutting-edge science involving a cancer vaccine. Unfortunately, this treatment won’t be available in Australia any time soon, so Sophie’s only chance is to travel to the US. However, this treatment comes at a cost of approximately $300,000. This is where Sophie and her family need the help of the community.
