Bravery Knows No Age

 

At a young age, Sophie Lee began having intermittent leg pain, with no other acute issues. Then at the age of five, since Sophie was still experiencing these odd pains, her family was referred to hematology for more tests. After an initial round of normal results, her hematologist recommended an additional test - bone marrow aspiration – which led to the unexpected diagnosis of Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), a precursor for Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

 

Among the four types of leukemia, this has the lowest survival rate, and the estimated incidence of pediatric MDS varies from 1 to 4 cases per million per year. So literally one in a million. And the only treatment option would be a bone marrow transplant, as soon as possible. Sophie had to leave kindergarten, brave a stem cell transplant, and endure rounds of chemo, with its own set of complications for even the strongest.

Surviving & Thriving

Sophie just celebrated her 13th birthday earlier this year! And while it has been a tough transition adjusting to her new “normal,” she is working to increase physical and mental strength through bike rides, play dates with friends, including the invaluable support of teachers, doctors and family.

 

Tony and Judy Lee started this tournament in 2015 as a grassroots effort to give back and raise awareness for bone marrow testing and blood cancers like Sophie's. Since our first tournament in 2015, we’ve raised over $140,000 with 100% of proceeds going to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, in conjunction with its Annual Man & Woman of the Year Campaign.
