Acute lymphoblastic leukemia
The first sign of trouble was dramatic: Abigail fell while walking and fractured her spine. By the time she could walk again three days later, she had received a diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and been referred to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital® for treatment.
Abigail is undergoing two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy, but her parents will never get a bill. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Abigail's mom is encouraged not only by St. Jude staff but also by all the people who support St. Jude's mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® "You hear a lot of bad in the world – it's nice to hear about the good," she said. "There is still good out there, and St. Jude is proof of it."
Abigail has never met a stranger. She sets out every day to make a new friend, whether it's another St. Jude patient or one of the therapy dogs that visit St. Jude. Abigail has two dogs at home named Bella and Brutus.
