9-year-old Texas girl, who President Trump prayed would recover, is now out of ICU after brain surgery

In this day and age, it’s encouraging to know our president understands the value of prayer.

A nine-year-old Texas girl for whom the White House asked the nation to pray last week is out of intensive care following surgery for a rare brain condition.

Scott Andy Peters, the father of Sophia Marie Campa-Peters of Brownfield, Texas, made the announcement on Facebook Sunday, noting that she was “back to her normal, goofy, silly self.”

The young Peters received her surgery at Boston Children’s Hospital on Friday. According to a White House statement, the girl suffers from “a rare disease that causes the blood vessels in her brain to narrow and close.”

Throughout her life, Peters has experienced numerous strokes, some leaving her partially paralyzed.

Peters’ family hoped to get 10,000 people to pray for her before she went into surgery last Friday, KFOR reported.

“We want to make sure she gets that and far exceeds it,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said on behalf of the president during a Jan. 23 press briefing. “So today, Sophia, I’m here to tell you that millions of people from every corner of the world will be praying for you on January 26th.”

Sanders communicated the president’s best wishes.

“And among those will be people and all of us here at the White House, including President Trump. He told me to tell you to keep fighting, to never give up, keep inspiring us all, and never, ever lose faith in God. With Him, all things are possible.”


On Monday, a Twitter page for Peters stated that doctors are considering letting her go home due to her improved condition.


“Sophia is doing so great!  Her strength and attitude are just simply wonderful!” the tweet read.

According to a family-created website, the nine-year-old is working on a project to help other children and bring awareness of childhood diseases.
