"When my daughter Sophie was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 8 1/2 months old, I knew in my heart that there had to be more that could help her outside of chemo and Western medicine. Finding the resources I needed was an overwhelming task that took hundreds of hours of research, coupled with confusion and questions. Because I understand how daunting this all can be, we at Saving Sophie have done all the work for you! We have scoured the web for the very best articles and information that can help support you along this journey.

From our family to yours, we hope this website helps alleviate some of your stress, and will arm you with the tools you need in your battle against this beast!" - Tracy Ryan
