Meet 7-year-old Abigail and her family. Her bright smile goes on for miles and lights up a room just by her happy presence. This sweet little girl tends to be a bit shy, but absolutely loves it when people talk to her.
Abigail’s favorite pastimes include the TV Show Dora, Hello Kitty, and coloring books.
Her Mom says, “she is the bravest, strongest, sweetest girl I know.”
That bravery is what helps Abigail handle multiple conditions. She spent the first 6 weeks of her life in the hospital and finally at 6 months old her family learned that she has Prader Will Syndrome. At 4 years old, an x-ray of her arm revealed that she has Ollier’s Disease. Finally in 2014, a huge tumor was found on her ovary. If that isn’t scary enough, the tumor ruptured before it was removed two weeks after discovering it, and the cancer cells spread, which would require chemotherapy to kill them.
Her siblings Ashley and Anthony love her to pieces and this journey has only made their bond even stronger. Their family takes life day by day and counts their blessings.
