Six children with rare diseases and disabilities were treated to a special screening of the new Justice League film on Monday by director Zack Snyder. Andrew and Chelsey Loftus attended the event with their daughter Sofie, who played the group’s Wonder Woman. This is what Andrew had to say:
It’s so awesome. These kids deserve it, It is just amazing to see all these people supporting Sofie and all the other children who have gone through so much.
Here’s what Chelsey had to say:
At first we were skeptical, but then heard that they wanted to show her strengths through this photoshoot, They wanted Sophie to be Wonder Woman and we were on board. It was cool to see her get to do something that was just for her, and own it.
Rossi’s “REAL Justice League” is comprised of 5-year-old double amputee Kayden Kinckle as Cyborg; 3-year-old Sofie, whose cancer is now in remission; 9-year-old Teagan Pettit, who has half a heart, as Superman; 2-year-old leukemia patient Mataese Manuma as Aquaman; 7-year-old Zaiden Stolrow, who suffers from ADHD and who loves to run, as The Flash; and 5-year-old Simon Fullmer, who is afflicted with Neuroblastoma, as Batman.
