Abigail is a 4 year old girl who was diagnosed with a brain tumour in Feb 2019. ATRT is a very rare and aggressive childhood brain cancer with a high relapse rate.
Her treatment makes her very sick and completely destroys her immune system. With the plan her oncologists have designed for her, she has been given a 50% chance of long term survival. This has been absolutely devastating for their family in more ways than one.
Abigail's mother Juliette had to quit full time work to care for her daughter, as well as caring for her younger son Charlie. Abby needs round-the-clock care which can only be done by those who have been specially trained, including being fed by nasogastric tube, and needing medications administered all through the night as well as during the day.
We are starting this page hoping that any support can be given to help them focus on the most important thing, Abigail and her health. Her treatment is expected to continue for at least another year and the expenses keep rolling in. Any funds donated will be used to pay for her medications, continue paying their rent and bills, and keep up with day-to-day expenses. Any extra will be donated to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.
Despite her near-constant pain and suffering, little Abby has maintained her bright and loving disposition throughout all of this and continues to win the hearts of everyone she meets.
Thank you all for all your support of Abigail and her family in her time of need. If you are unable to donate please share! xx
