Sophie Rolf


Until very recently Sophie Rolf was a happy go lucky little 4 year old girl living on theIsle of Wightwith not a care in the world.

During May 2012 a 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 has brain cancer.

Sophie has an aggressive brain tumour and was set a course of radiotherapy, chemotherapy and was accepted on a drug trial within weeks of diagnosis.

We have set up KissyPuppy as a mechanism to fund raise for Sophie. The money raised will be used to support Sophie’s journey through this and to ensure Sophie and her family get as many magical experiences as possible.

Westview Coffee and Cake Sale

Westview House yesterday held and Coffee Morning and Cake Sale. The staff all paid to wear purple for the day. They had lots of wonderful cakes and a raffle all in aid of KissyPuppy and raised over £260. Sadly Sophie wasn’t able to join in as she was having treatment in Southampton in the morning, but did pop in the afternoon to say thank you.
