On September 7th, 2015, Abby Shapiro’s parents said goodbye to their beautiful, vibrant daughter after her valiant battle with cancer. Today, one year later, we stand with them to honor Abby’s life and share her indomitable #ToughCookie spirit.
In the past 365 days, 40,000 children have been in active treatment for childhood cancer. In that same year, 14,000 families have heard the devastating words “your child has cancer” for the first time. And during every moment of those same 365 days, Abby has been immeasurably missed by her family, her friends, her class- and teammates and community.
Join us as we send love to the Shapiro family today and every day. . .and as we fight for all children battling cancer. To learn more about Abby, follow the link – her story was beautifully told by The Washington Post.
