BROWNSVILLE, Texas —

Sophia Marie Campa-Peters took a chance and reached out to President Donald Trump to see if he would keep her in his thoughts during an upcoming medical procedure.

During a recent press briefing, White House press secretary Sara Huckabee Sanders told the country about Sophia’s condition that causes her brain’s blood vessels to narrow and close, putting her at risk for strokes, KFSM reported. Trump told Sophia via Huckabee Sanders, “Keep fighting, to never give up, keep inspiring us all, and never, ever lose faith in God. With Him, all things are possible.”
