You can help the family of Sophia Myers with medical and travel expenses at an event Sunday as they seek treatment for the 7-year-old’s inoperable brain tumor.
Sophia, a first-grader at Oak Park Elementary, was diagnosed Feb. 22 with diffuse intrinsic pontine gliomas, known as DIPG, which is a tumor on a major structure in the upper part of the brain stem. She has been undergoing treatment.
“Paint the town PINK for Sophie Myers,” a paint-a-thon and raffle, is set for noon to 7 p.m. Sunday at B.Y.O.B. Bring Your Own Brush studio, 1204 Bienville Blvd. in Ocean Springs.
Event tickets are $20 per canvas and families are welcome to share a canvas.
