A 4-year-old girl who is fighting for her life got her Christmas wish a little early: Despite living in Georgia, a state that doesn't get much snow, Sophia awoke to see a winter wonderland.
A cancerous tumor was found in Sophia's brain just before her third birthday.
She has gone through months of chemotherapy and radiation, undergone four brain surgeries and lost some of her sight and most of her hearing.
In October, she was given two weeks to two months to live.
Employees from a state park heard about the girl and her story and wanted to do something for her. They used a snow machine -- and 30 pounds of snow and four dump trucks -- to give Sophia a gift of snowy white.
