Community coming together for 7-year-old girl who was recently diagnosed with cancer

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Featured

Sophia’s mom had to tell her daughter the news that no mother wants to. Seven-year-old Sophia has cancer…Ewing sarcoma. 🥺 A tumor was found around her left rib cage and there are some tumors in her left lung as well. Sophia’s port was just put in and she started chemotherapy here at Roswell. She is the fiercest little girl and plans on kicking cancer’s butt. Her family is now asking for your help. They are throwing a benefit for Sophia and wondered if the community would be so kind as to donate a gift certificate or basket. Sophia’s parents are the owners of Marco’s Italian Deli on Maple Road in Williamsville. A close Italian family…they will be by Sophia’s side every step of the way. Donations of baskets can be made by contacting Gabrielle Benintende at 716-949-7488 or emailing

Please pray for Sophia. A benefit will be held Saturday, Oct. 2 at the UAW in Williamsville. If you would like to make a monetary donation, you can contribute to help Sophia and her parents here:
