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.”
We Can Stand In Your Place and Empower You With Love
Our information is to empower you with knowledge and to encourage your joy for life with your loved one as they heal. Sophia lived life ! She wanted us to share what we learned because it helped her. ” We are holding your hand. You are not alone.”
-Vivian Hartman, Sophia’s Momma
Based on our experience with our 12 year old daughter Sophia Hartman who lived with Refractory Leukemia. Once a child is in placed in the hosptial setting for an sudden onset illness such as cancer, they may be in for a day, week, month or months at a time because… ” A child has to be fit for life, before they are able to leave home.” Parents and/or caretakers are now sudenlly living in the hospital long term, caring for their child.
With our encouragement you will love your child through the painfulness of what they are suffering – Helping you & your loved one see and enjoy the moments of life with a different eye.
IT IS ALL ABOUT LOVE
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:
PURPOSE AND GOAL
A. Amend law for financial requirements of family dealing with “Pediatric long term Illness”
B. Empower parents to participate in the care of their child with a different eye
C. Encourage fun living, “Living to live life great until they are healed, or to heaven
D. Ongoing Marrow Drives for life!
E. Cell phone drives to keep the child connected to family
F. Outside food gift cards (Grocery & Fast food) to keep the child eating
E. Teach Parents simple techniques of massage, reflexology, accupressure, aromatherapy
TODAY I AM HEALED
Today I am healed from from the ailement of this day
Until I have a great day
Then I have a great week
Then I have a great month
Then a great year
And then Finally a Great Life!
