Abby always required a lot of sleep as a child. But at 7
years old her mom noticed that she was increasingly tired,
lethargic and grouchy. At her 8 year old check-up, her mom
insisted that she have a full blood work up to see if there was
and assumed that she had a blood infection that would resolve
itself in a few weeks. However, the following day, on March 11,
2011, the test results came back positive for leukemia. Her
world now resolves around doctor's appointments, days at the
clinic, spreadsheets of medicine dosages, and arranging
activities around blood count levels. Abby is old enough to
understand what is going on and to have questions of her own.
Everyone at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta talks to her,
answers her questions, and makes sure she is as comfortable as
possible. Although this is a difficult journey for Abby and her
family, they are grateful for all the love, care and respect
they receive from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
