This Badass Girl Dressed As Wonder Woman On Her Last Day Of Chemo

Sophia Sandoval’s picture has since gone viral, and even been shared by Lynda Carter. H/T: The Huffington Post.

1. Sophia Sandoval, from San Antonio, Texas, is three-years-old, and last year was diagnosed with a brain tumour known as medulloblastoma.

She had surgery to remove the tumour last summer, and had to undergo chemotherapy treatment from June until last Friday, January 30.

2. To mark the occasion, Sophia dressed up as one of her heroes, Wonder Woman.

The photo was shared on the Facebook page of a paediatric charity, and has gotten over one million likes and 37,000 shares.

4. Sophia’s mum, Rossio, told BuzzFeed News:

Sophia has finished chemo, and next week she will get an MRI to confirm that she is cancer-free.

The first time we shared the picture, it was for family and people who follow her on her page. But now that it has gone viral, we count it as a blessing that it will spread awareness of childhood cancer.

Sophia, before and after her treatment.

6. Sophia’s wonderful picture hasn’t gone unnoticed by Wonder Woman herself.
