Abby's 6 Year Cancerversary

 Abby and me when we first met, 5 years ago.

Abby and me when we first met, 5 years ago.

I met Abby 5 years ago on a trip with the St. Baldrick's Foundation to film a video about her and that C-word, cancer, that came storming into her life. This girl stole my heart, and has had it ever since. I'll share more about her story and journey with childhood cancer in an upcoming post, but for now, I wanted to invite you all to CELEBRATE today with Abby.

Today is her 6 year cancerversary!

6 years ago, Abby and her family heard the words, "you have cancer," but today, she's here. She's smiling, laughing, playing with her sisters Maggie and Emily, defying the odds and stealing hearts.

Abby's mom, Patty, is running a fundraiser today with the St. Baldrick's Foundation in honor of her special day, and is asking friends to give $6 in honor of her six years. Will you do me a favor today? Will you give and share this post with your friends, asking them to do the same?

Whether you give $6, $60 or $600 (hey-oh!), every single dollar will go to funding the very best childhood cancer research to help kids just like Abby.

Take a minute to give & share, and if you don't mind, leave me a note in the comments below if you did! Let's do some good together today.

xoxo,

Kristen
