Dedication to Sophia Myers at Little Children’s Park

Friends and family of the late Sophia Myers gathered together today to honor Sophia with a memorial in Ocean Springs.

A special ceremony was held at the Little Children’s Park to unveil the new park bench placed at the center of the playground to remember Sophia’s life.

Senator Brice Wiggins spoke on behalf of the new addition to the park and presented a proclamation to Sophia’s parents for National DIPG Day on May 17th.

Sophia’s father, Josh, spoke on the importance of the community’s involvement throughout Sophia’s battle with DIPG and how the new bench gives him a reason to return to his daughter’s favorite park.
