My Story

Abby was diagnosed on September 26th, 2012 with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She completed her first treatments in March of 2013. Abby relapsed and started treatment again on 9/23/13. In February, Abby headed to The Mayo Clinic where she received a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) from an unknown, heroic donor. After many scary complications, Abby was declared "in remission" on April 2nd. She's still got months of doctors appointments ahead to carefully monitor the BMT.

AML is a type of leukemia that is usually found in adults and it is rare for people under 40. AML is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow--the spongy tissue inside bones where blood cells are made. Acute means that it is a rapidly progressing cancer. Abby was only eight years when she was diagnosed. She is ten now.

Abby may not read this every day but her parents sure will. Eventually we will make this site into a book that we can keep forever and ever, Abby will read it then.
