Abby-Jo's Wish

Abby-Jo was a happy 12 year old, who despite having autism and hypo-mobility of the joints, she always has a smile on her face. Until her and her family had their worst fears confirmed when they were told Abby-Jo is suffering with a very rare form of cancer - known as Non-Hodgkins Anaplastic large cell lymphoma stage 3b with skin involvement. This has meant intense chemo, which has stripped Abby down to a weak, seriously sick vulnerable girl,with her immune system so low the smallest of infection is life threatening.

On top of Abby's sessions of chemo, she has been so ill that she has spent most of her days in Kings due to side effects of the treatment. The knock on effect this has had on the family is unthinkable, her siblings are left without their sister and mother, her dad has had to give up work and care for the three other children, so money is very minimal at this already extremely desperate time.

Abby is a giving girl and never asks for anything, and this page has been set up to give her something to commend her courage and bravery. One thing Abby has expressed is that she would love to be back with all her family and have a special family time, somewhere warm. I am asking from the bottom of my heart for you to help make this dream a reality by making a donation - be it small or large, every penny helps.

Let's give Abby something to look forward to after all the pain she has suffered. Spending her 13th birthday in hospital having chemo, losing her hair and lots of weight and not to mention the potential damage that the chemo may have caused on her tiny fragile body. Please, please, please help to make this wish come true.
