The Micevic family is raising money for their three-year old daughter, Sofija, in order for her to be treated for relapsed Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. This is the only available treatment in the world and their source of hope. 

The family is entirely reliant on the aid and support of others to make this treatment possible. The treatment consists of two stages, the first costing $270,000 and the second, $500,000 for a bone marrow transplant.

This is the cost of the medical treatment alone.

Sofija is a vibrant and cheerful little girl who has suffered from leukemia on and off since she was 6 months old. 

Time is of the essence- and her travel and treatment cannot begin until the funding goal is reached. Please help dear Sofija!

Apel za pomoc: Porodici Micevic iz Banje Luke su potrebna sredstva za lecenje njihove trogodisnje cerke Sofije koja boluje od akutne limfoblastne leukemije. Lecenje ce se obaviti u bolnici Dzons Hopkins (Johns Hopkins) u Baltimoru, SAD. Ovo je jedina institucija koja je u stanju da obezbedi ovu vrstu tretmana.

Porodica je u potpunosti zavisna od donacija kako bi se Sofiji omogucilo lecenje. Ceo proces sastoji se iz dve faze, gde prva kosta 270 000 USD, dok je druga faza transplantacija kostane srzi i kosta 500 000 USD.

Ovo pokriva samo medicinske troskove.

Sofija je zivahna i nasmejana devojcica koja boluje od leukemije od sestog meseca zivota.

Vreme je od krucijalne vaznosti - njen dolazak i lecenje ne mogu da pocnu dok se ne sakupi novac.
Pomozimo Sofiji!

Thank you all again for your tremendous support. You restored faith for a family without hope.

Sofija's funeral is on Saturday, April 29, in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The Micevic family’s wish is to arrange for the donations they have received to be distributed, with your consent, to other families with whom they have been united through the unspeakably sad commonality of children with cancer. These children are also in desperate need of medical treatment that is unavailable in the Balkan region.

After the funeral, we will share the names of the children, the treatment they are seeking, as well as the hospitals and countries where they will be treated so you can be assured that your generous support will be meaningfully and immediately put to life-saving use.

Again, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Sofija has opened a warmth and kindness in everyone who knew her and knew of her. Carry this with you.

Hvala vam svima na recima utehe. Vi ste ti koji ste vratili veru porodici koja nije imala nadu.

Sofija ce biti sahranjena u subotu, 29.aprila u Banja Luci, BiH.

Zelja porodice Micevic je da distribuira, uz vase dopustenje, sredstva prikupljena za Sofiju, drugoj deci koja boluju od raka, a od kojih se neka lece na Institutu za majku i dete u Beogradu. Ova deca takodje cekaju na lecenje u inostranstvu, jer ne postoje bilo kakve opcije na Balkanu za njihovo ozdravljenje.

Nakon sahrane, poslacemo jos jedan izvestaj sa imenima dece, tretmanom koji im je potreban i bolnicom i zemljom u koju idu. Vasa velikodusna podrska i donacije odmah biti usmereni ka spasavanju zivota ove dece.

Hvala vam iz dubine srca. Sofija je otvorila dobrotu i cistotu u svima koji su je ili upoznali ili pak samo culi za nju. To ne moze svako, potrebno je imati mnogo za tako nesto, da si plemenita, cista dusa, da si Sofija….

Dear Friends,

With great sadness, we share that Sofija passed away this morning. This little girl from Banja Luka will remain a symbol and reminder of solidarity and joint strength for good, for the sake of goodness.

Hug and kiss your nearest and dearest today, and be especially grateful for your blessings, large and small.

Please contact me directly for a refund of your donation, if you wish. Otherwise, the money will be donated in Sofija’s name to a humanitarian aid organization in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia, which helps support patients in need of medical treatment overseas.

May Sofija rest in peace.


Dragi prijatelji,
Sa velikom tugom moram vas obavestiti da je Sofijino srce prestalo da kuca jutros. Ova mala devojcica iz Banja Luke ostace simbol ujedinjenja ljudi svih vera, nacija i boje koze sa svih kontinenata oko jedne ideje, a to je ideja dobrote. Simbol borbe, hrabrosti i pozrtvovanja.
Vi danas zagrlite i poljubite vase najblize, budite zahvalni na svemu sto imate, makar to bilo i malo ukoliko poredite sa onima koji imaju vise. Prebrojte blagoslove kojima ste okruzeni i shvatite ,da makar i jedan blagoslov koji imate, nije malo.
Ukoliko zelite da vam se refundira vasa gofundme donacija, javite mi se na email direktno. Novac koji je sakupljen bice usmeren u Sofijino ime ka nekoj od organizacija koje pomazu u slanju dece iz Bosne i Srbije na lecenje u inostranstvo.
Pomenite Sofiju u vasim molitvama. Ona je sada sa andjelima.
