10 year old Sophie's journey with rhabdomyosarcoma has attracted significant attention throughout the UK
Sophie's mother documented her journey in a blog followed by 35K followers @Sophie's journey. This detailed account raised amazing awareness of rhabdomyosarcoma and the world of childhood cancer. Sophie's plight received significant press attention in the BBC , ITV and The Independent.
Sophie left her family with a list of jobs to change the childhood cancer experience for a patient diagnosed in the future. One of these includes a petition to the Government to lobby for greater investment into researching childhood cancers like rhabdomyosarcoma.
We are delighted that Sophie will be part of our Arcs family network using Sophie's Arc as a channel to fight together with other families impacted by rhabdomyosarcoma.
