Family, Friends and Neighbors-
For those of you that haven’t heard, Our sweet, spunky, sassy 10 year old, Sofia Sanchez, an incoming 5th grader at Kingsley School in Downers Grove, has just been diagnosed with the devastating news of having cardio myopathy. Cardio Myopathy is an incurable disease that causes heart failure. Sofia is currently in critical condition at Lurie Children’s hospital in Chicago undergoing invasive procedures to determine just how quickly she will need a heart transplant. Unfortunately in the meantime, her liver is beginning to fail her.
As any parents would be, Dave and Natalie are fearful to leave Sofia’s side right now. This is obviously going to result in a decrease of income, which is stressful enough without the burden of having a critically sick child. With this diagnosis, Sofia’s medical bills will continue for many years.
Let’s all do our best to reach out to Natalie, Dave, Anthony, Jonathon and especially Sofia and show our support from a great community that is here to lift each other up and help however we can. No one wants to experience the uncertainty the Sanchez family is dealing with right now. If you are able, please help and support Stay Strong Sofia!
Please keep following for updates as we have them. Thank you.
