Written by my friend James....To my Ohana- This is Sophie Lee, I spent part of my childhood growing up with her mother, Sondra Lee Plunk. She was and is still my friend. The day before I returned home from Tennessee, Sondra was at Leboneur Children's Hospital, because her 6 month old daughter, Sophie, was very ill. Sophie was diagnosed with Leukodystrophy, a degenerative genetic disease, effecting the Myelin of the brain, the electrical insulator, of the nerves. This leads to the brain, basically misfiring, and not being able to communicate with the body. Sophie's sun is setting, there is not a cure for her affliction. Sophie will only be with us a short time.
I want to ask all those I have weaved in my life, and all those you have, to give what you can to make this lovely child's precious time, a gift for her family. A thought, a prayer, a helping hand is in dire need. The current situation leaves the family without insurance and struggling to find a home.
This should never happen to a child, but imagine she was yours. Please pass this to everyone in your life and have them to everyone in there's. Post this at work, on collection jars, on the back of buses. Let's extend our Ohana to theirs and make a difference in the lives of people you have never met. You have to be willing to GIVE ANYTHING, RISK EVERYTHING, if we do not make the change, who will???
