Why Sofia wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

When I was 3 years old, I suffered from pain in my right leg which got diagnosed as Osteoid Osteoma. Thankfully after a couple of procedures I have been pain free and in complete remission. I still remember the pain and how awful it was and because of that I feel so blessed to be able to live my dream of being a dancer each and every day. I want to be a voice for children fighting cancer and inspire them to keep their faith, have hope and to believe that anything is possible. Every child deserves to have dreams and grow old to see them all come true <3 — Sofia Strobl
