About Sofia

Sofia comes from a large family in Mexico City with more than 25 members affected by Central Core Disease (CCD). She moved to Austin, TX in 1983 and has two children, one of them, Tommie Leon, with CCD. In 1995, she began working with Dr. Susan Hamilton, head researcher at Baylor School of Medicine, and brought to her multiple blood samples of family members which allowed researchers to find where was the mutation that caused CCD.
