She’s only six, yet Sophia Megan knows what it’s like to fight for her life. In June 2012, she was diagnosed with Leukemia.

“The Super Sophia Project started when my daughter Sophia, at two years old, was diagnosed with Leukemia,” said Sophia’s mom Nicolle Georgiev. “So it was a way for us to heal, to cope and to get and give love.”

Today Sophia is strong and healthy and is helping to support other children fighting cancer with a simple pair of personalized scrubs, providing a little comfort for those undergoing treatment.

It’s Sophia’s hope that each pair will remind them that anything is possible if you believe.

When asked why she wanted to start the Super Sophia Project, the answer was simple.

“To make kids happy!” Sophia said.

“We did the scrubs when Sophia was at the beginning of treatment,” said Georgiev. “We made her a pair and when other parents saw them they love them.”

To date, this mother and daughter team have donated more than 500 pairs of scrubs to children during their hospital treatments.

“I call her the beautiful face of hope because once they see her and seen what she went through, they honestly tell themselves, ‘You know if she can do it, I can do it,” said Georgiev.
