In 2007 Abby was struck with a rare neurological disorder called Transverse Myelitis and was paralyzed from the neck down. After several months in the hospital she regained most of her mobility back but suffers from sever pain, bladder issues, foot drop, and weakness in her lower body causing her to depend part time on a wheelchair and the need for AFOs for her leg. Five years later she was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation I. Two weeks after diagnosis she underwent her first brain surgery to decompress the chiari. Two months later she had complications from that and had to be rushed back for another emergency brain surgery followed four days later by her third brain surgery and two days after that she had a shunt placed. Later that year she had two surgeries to help fix her bladder and just before christmas this year she had yet another surgery on her head to reduce the pressure that is once again building. Durning that week she was also diagnosed with epilepsy. Abby is in some very aggressive therapy and is on several daily medications as well as in need of new AFOs since she has out grown her current one. We are having a fundraiser on January 19th to help offset the huge medical bills she is constantly accruing. For those that can't make the fundraiser or are too far to join us please consider donating here or sharing this if you are unable. Thank you all for your love, prayers and support while we take this journey. Carrie and Hal Holbrook
