We are beaming with excitement to announce that Sunshine on a Ranney Day will be giving Sophia a dazzling dream bedroom makeover! This smart, beautiful and wildly spunky sixteen year old is proof that mighty power can come from within a tiny package. From the beginning, she was a ball of spit and fire. Her unwavering perseverance has served her well. Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of four, she has faced her trials with the strength and courage of a superhero. She has endured daily airway treatments, multiple lengthy hospitalizations and fought off the most dangerous bacterial infection, Burkholderia Cepacia. Despite these aggressive ailments, she exudes confidence, fierce passion and a desire to change the world for the better. Sophia loves music and singing. She has been playing the drums soulfully for over four years and learned to play the ukulele during her last hospital stay. She is a gifted writer, putting this talent to good use by writing songs that her music teacher is helping her produce. She is also writing a compelling novel that is centered around a character who lives with Cystic Fibrosis. This is just one of many opportunities she takes to educate others about CF. Sophia has been actively engaged in her treatment with medical professionals since she was old enough to ask and answer questions. Admirably, she has also chosen to participate in research studies to help further scientific advancements in CF care. We can’t wait to surprise her with the makeover of her dreams! We hope that you will support our efforts and join us at the unveiling of this completed project.
