My Story

Abbey was diagnosed with leukemia on October 2nd, 2008, right after her third birthday. Abbey went through 2 years, 3 months of chemotherapy. She was very sick at times and was on as many as 9 medications a day. Seven months into treatment it was found that Abbey had a blood clot in her brain as a side affect from one of the chemotherapys. She had to get 2 shots a day for 6 months in her little arms and legs. After 6 months, the blood clot dissolved and she continued on with no other "bumps in the road" during the rest of her treatment. She was a strong, brave little warrior through it all and she beat cancer, finishing her treatment on January 8th, 2011 :)! Abbey was so amazing through her treatment and has been so accepting of this journey that we've been on. Abbey's smile and laugh kept us all going through the hardest of days and scariest of nights and the way she has bounced back from it all has been nothing less then a miracle. Abbey is the only girl of our four children and she loves her three brothers dearly. She loves school, reading, riding her bike and snuggling on the couch with her mommy in her special pink blanket. We are so thankful for Dr. Huang, Barb Humrick, our nurse Kathy and the many others who have been involved in the amazing care that she has gotten at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital. And we are also so grateful for St. Baldrick's and the money that is raised so that Abbey and the many others who are diagnosed with these devastating diseases can beat them and lead normal, healthy lives :).
