Sophie’s Giving Tree was created in 2013 to provide support (financial and/or material) for families during a medical crisis at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. Our hope is this support will allow families to be together during times that prove to be the most difficult and emotional.
In addition we will strive to:
- To improve the health and welfare of children by donating to other not-for-profit organizations that support pediatric medical research or serve the needs of children with serious medical conditions or diseases.
- To promote the wellbeing of families with children who are patients at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse, NY by donating directly to such families or to other not-for-profit organizations with a similar purpose.
Sophie’s parents, Jenée and Rob feel they were very lucky to have the support their friends and community provided to them in the 11 months that followed her diagnosis. They also realize there are many families who do not have the same support available. Sophie’s Giving Tree was created in memory of Sophie, to help support families here in CNY during a medical crisis. What better way to keep Sophie’s memory alive then by paying it forward by helping others in her memory?
