Annabel Steiner, 13; Lucy Steiner, Niklaus Steiner and Elsa Steiner, 18, gather for a family portrait in the bedroom of Sophie Steiner, who died last year after a battle with cancer. The Steiner family has set up a foundation, Be Loud! Sophie, to fund a position at UNC Hospitals to help adolescent patients who have cancer. The family has kept Sophie’s bedroom intact since her death. They have removed her bed and had a desk built. The lanterns, the bookcases and Sophie’s ukulele remain as reminders of what a special young woman she was.
