We are walking to honor the memory of our youngest daughter, Abby who lost her battle to osteosarcoma in 2019 at the age of 9.
Those that knew her would describe her as an energetic, funny, loving, caring young lady. Someone, whose humor and bravery made more of an impact to others in her 9 years than some make their entire lives.
Abby was often more concerned for the feelings of others more than her own. Always worried about how her friends and family were feeling and never wanting them to be sad. Unfortunately, while we would move heaven and earth to put a smile on her face; that is one wish we can't grant.
To say she is missed simply doesn't do the sentiment justice.
While there is little that makes Abby's loss easier, we feel there is no better way to honor her memory than to remain engaged with the amazing team at Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund, giving back where we can and help other children who are suffering.
One thing we know is it would definitely make Abby smile to help others!
