Nine‐year‐old Sophia from Hampshire was diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy when she was very little. As a result of the condition, she has very limited use of her lower body and is wheelchair bound. She also has to perform gruelling daily physio exercises and also requires regular botox injections, which are used to help relax the muscles in her legs.
Since watching Dolphin Tale in the cinema, Sophia has been fascinated by the story and is always trying to find out more about Winter, the very special dolphin who lost her tale after becoming entangled with a rope attached to a crab trap. Sophia’s wish was to meet Winter and Starlight arranged for her to meet her and to swim with some of Winter’s friends in Orlando, Florida!
