For anyone wishing to make a donation in Sophie’s honor, we can think of no better organization than the PPB Registry, running out of the Children’s Hospital of Minnesota. The PPB Registry is leading research into early detection, treatment plans, and hopefully one day a cure for PPB (Pleuropulmonary Blastoma). The team at the PPB Registry has gone above and beyond these past few weeks, providing us and our medical team with extensive research and information on how best to move forward with Sophie’s relapse. The personal care they’ve shown for Sophie as an individual has been incredible.
