Sofia and her sister, Gabi, loved animals of all kinds and had every stuffed animal imaginable. That’s why it’s not surprising that while she was in treatment one her favorite things to do was going to the Zoo. We’d rent the bikes and stroll the entire park. It was a place where she could be a kid and forget about being sick!!
Unfortunately, not everyone can afford a Family Membership. So Sofia’s Hope in conjunction with Zoo Miami is providing families with a child with cancer an Adopt-an-Animal crates which include the following
Stuffed Animal (i.e., American Alligator, Okapi, Otter or African Elephant)
Certificate of adoption
Animal fun facts
