Sophia, a patient at Shriners Hospitals for Children Honolulu, met with Dancing With The Stars pros last Thursday.
Sophie's favorite dancer is Val Chmerkovskiy and got to meet him in person! She also met Val's brother Maks, Karina Smirnoff and Sharna Burgess.
Sophia's mother, Ina Ries, organized the meetup by writing to the producers of the show about her daughter's battle with cerebral palsy.
Last December, Sophia, 14, started having seizures. Ries says, "We almost lost her." Time have been difficult lately for the family, but Ries says she is grateful for the care Sophia receives at Shriners Hospital.
Sophia is a huge fan of Dancing With The Stars and her mom bought her two tickets to see "Ballroom With A Twist" at the Neal Blaisdell Center. After the Thursday show, Sophia was very surprised to meet the dancing pros.
