Sophia Rose's Medical Fund

Sweet little Ms. Sophia Rose is currently in the hospital fighting for her life. She was diagnosed with Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS), which is a life threatening complication of Systematic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (SJIA). Normally, when the immune system is activated, it fights the infection in a coordinated and controlled manner. In individuals with MAS, the immune system is uncontrolled and works in overdrive, leading to too much inflammation in the entire body. In Sophia’s case this has had a traumatic affect on her lung function causing scare tissue to develop that is restricting her oxygen intake. She recently had to be placed on an ECMO machine to help the oxygen saturation in her blood. She has been in a medically induced coma for two weeks now and could use your support in any way possible. Sophia is a fighter, she’s strong and determined but right now she needs help fighting. Her parents have had to take a leave of absence from their jobs and have been juggling hospital stays and looking after her two older brothers. Please help ease the burden her parents, Michael and Anna Carlson, are facing by donating to help cover their ever-growing medical bills/living expenses.  No donation is to small, every dollar helps. We thank you in advance for all your help and support.
