During May 2012 Sophie’s parents noticed a tremor in her left arm and after numerous hospital visits and finally an MRI scan in June, the family received the terrible news that Sophie had an aggressive brain tumour. Initially we set up ‘KissyPuppy’ as a mechanism to fund raise for Sophie and her family. Sadly Sophie lost her battle at the end of 2013 but KissyPuppy intends to continue to provide support to children on the Isle of Wight suffering from life-shortening conditions and is now KissyPuppy – The Sophie Rolf Trust.
