This is just one of the many miracles treated at Lurie Children’s Hospital. Join us at the Torch Relay to meet Abby.
“Our daughter Abigail ( or Abby as we like to call her) was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at 2 months old. After 7 months of chemo therapy, her doctors decided that Abby would benefit from a stem cell transplant as part of her treatment for ALL. That's when we were referred to Lurie's. Abby underwent her stem cell transplant at Lurie's in October of last year and has been treated by the stem cell team ever since. Beginning next month, Abby will transition to the survivorship program at Lurie's . We are happy to say that Abby has been one year cancer free! We are extremely grateful for all of the support we have received from Lurie's. We've never felt alone in the fight to save our daughter's life.”
