MIAMI (CBS4) – A South Florida woman began a foundation to honor her 6 year old little girl who stole many hearts during the last months of her life.
Gildiana Sosa was full of life she had a familiar face to some of you who have followed her story. The last months of her life played out on the news because of her therapies and surgeries to try and treat her brain cancer. At the young age of 6, Gildiana Sosa said goodbye.
“She was always happy so I want happiness to all the kids in the world,” said Diana Hislop, Gildiana’s mother.
But her memory lives on in the Gildiana Sosa Foundation.
A new office may just be four walls now, but the space in an office building in Hialeah is the new home of the Gildiana Sosa Foundation headed Hislop.
“She would be so happy and so proud,” said Hislop who knows too well the kind of support families need as they watch their children battle cancer. “I want to help them out with mortgage with rent with phone bills with medical expenses. Sometimes they lose their jobs. They don’t have a helping hand. We want to be there for them whatever they need.”
That way they can be there when their children need them the most.
“The most important thing is for the parents to be with their kids. They are the best moments. They are the best moments ever that they will never forget. I will never forget,” said Hislop.
