One of the many wonderful things that comes out of our Y1025 "Cares for Kids" MUSC Children's Hospital Radiothon each year is the friendships that I make with patients and families. This is my good friend Abby, who is simply an amazing young girl.
When she was 5 days old, she had open-heart surgery. At 6 months, she had a second. In November of 2014, while preparing for her third and final open heart surgery, Abigail was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Abby is now cancer free and Monday morning she will undergo her third and final open heart surgery.
Please keep her, and the team at MUSC Children's Hospital performing the procedure, in your thoughts. You can leave Abby and her family a message her:
