Smiles for Sophie

As of April 2016, we have partnered with Smiles for Sophie Forever in awarding family grants. Smiles for Sophie Forever is a non-profit organization named after Sophie who also lost her battle to a brain stem tumor. The rainbow and helping other families who have a child with brain cancer is also very near and dear to their mission, which is why we created a partnership in fulfilling family grants. Together we can make a difference!
