Sofia’s Hope is a nonprofit based in Miami whose mission is to spread awareness and understanding of childhood cancer in our community, provide service and comfort to the children and their families, and to provide much-needed support to research the late effects of treatment.
This year they are celebrating 10 years of supporting the childhood cancer community - providing a helping hand to 2,000 patients and families annually, working alongside all the South Florida pediatric cancer hospitals and offering 10 different patient/family programs.
Their Pediatric Cardio-Oncology Research program is the only one in the nation that focuses solely on pediatric cardio-oncology, and it has yielded data that confirms cardio-protective drugs can be used to protect warrior’s hearts. Their annual research dollars support dissemination of research and information through the First International Pediatric Cardio-Oncology Conference last fall, a new Cardio-Oncology research journal, quarterly webinars, presentations and more.
Since inception, they have provided over $1 Million in support to the pediatric cancer community and The Big Cheese of Miami is proud to name them our charity of choice. For several years we have sponsored their Wine & Cheese and Reason to Run 5K events as well as donated lunch for many of their horse camps. We have seen firsthand the impact of their work and are proud to be a part of their village.
