PITTSBURGH — A local high school freshman who survived leukemia as a child is now competing in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Student of the Year campaign.
Sophie Stophel was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when she was three-years-old. In April, she will celebrate being nine years cancer free.
The Student of the Year is a seven-week fundraising competition to raise money to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and it’s investment in research of blood cancers. The candidates who raise the most money earn a college scholarship, along with the title Student of the Year.
Stophel’s campaign runs through March 26, 2021. You can donate HERE.
