Sophia Ellenay Pantoja Memorial

On February 26th Sophia Ellenay "Little Birdie" took her last breath here on earth and her first breath in her Father's lap in Heaven.
Sophia was born with a rare genetic condition called "Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome" and from the moment of her birth began a valiant fight for life. She continued to prove doctors wrong and would miraculously improve even after her parents were told to prepare for the worst. Sophia was a WARRIOR - no doubt she gained her strength from the endless love of her mama, daddy, and four big sisters. Sophia loved her daddys pillow, her mamas mani/pedis, her sisters snuggles, and her piggy.
Every time Sophia was in the hospital fighting her family made sure she was never alone. Their devotion to her was inspiring and the way they worked as a team through it all is incredible.
Sophia's beautiful family has a tough road ahead while they adjust to life without their beautiful girl. On top of that they are left with the stress of final expenses and medical bills still to come. Please help us to relieve some of that stress with a donation in any amount. All of the donations received will go directly to Mike & Lydia to use for Sophia's memorial, medical expenses, and making life easier in the next few weeks for their four older daughters.
