Knowledge is Powerful and Love is the Power of the World!
Sophia’s Angels® empowers parents in the care of their child by teaching simple love tools such as massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, acupressure, visualization and story telling. These techniques helped Sophia for fevers, and other issues that are affected by chemotherapy and long term hospital stays. Parents are inspired to work with the doctors and their child… instead of just sitting, watching and waiting. “Love them hopeful.”
PURPOSE AND GOAL
A. Empower parents to participate in the care of their child using simple techniques to relieve the symptoms associated with cancer treatment & therapies.
B. Teach Parents simple techniques of advocating for their child’s care with doctors and nurses.
C. Encourage fun living, during hospital stays – including parent/caretaker respite and self-care.
D. Promote Bone Marrow Awareness and the ease of testing for a match.
E. Amend law that leaves a child uninsured for two days to one week when a family loses their private insurance. In September 2017, Sophia’s Angels introduced “Code Life” to the California Children’s Services – an amendment to the law to keep a child insured with the same coverage until new insurance is found. We continue to pursue closing this gap.
F. Outside food gift cards (Grocery & Restaurant Gift Cards) to keep the child eating.

Everyday while dealing with cancer there are many things to worry about like fever, eating, pooping, energy to smile and hope. Every little thing to live, Sophia did with hope. She felt that if she took her medicine she would feel better. If she ate he food, even if she vomited, something would remain in her belly and keep her strong. Every little thing added to a bigger complete healing. It is a something-something. Sophia wrote this affirrmation on her door at the hospital for all to read. Here is her prayer:
