Ohio dad, Nathan Steffel, posted a request online for a picture of his six week old daughter Sophia to be altered. Tragically, Sophia died due to medical complications without ever leaving the hospital and his request was for someone to help remove the tubes from the photo of her. The response he received from Reddit users was incredibly moving.
Reddit’s artists and Photoshoppers responded overwhelmingly, sending Steffel their condolences and different interpretations of Sophia’s photo
Steffel explained that Sophia had succumbed to a hepatic hemangioma in her liver
Some artists even created pencil drawings or paintings of Sophia, emailing or mailing them to Steffel
There were hundreds of responses, all by people who wanted to take some time to help Steffel mourn his loss
