Silver Linings & Saving Sophie

In June 2013, Sophie Ryan was diagnosed with a low-grade, Optic Pathway Glioma brain tumor. She was only eight and a half months old. OPG is a slow-growing tumor that affects the optic nerve which connects the eye to the brain. As the tumor grows, it presses on the optic nerve causing a child’s vision to worsen, sometimes leading to blindness. Over the next few years Tracy, her husband Josh, and Sophie would all come to learn the true meaning of endurance and anguish, but most importantly, love, hope, and joy.
