Abbigail’s story is one that has captured many hearts and plenty of interest perhaps because it is so rare, but I think it is because she steals your heart even in her weakest moments. My sweet little girl will forever be the one in ten million that fights this rare cancer-caused disease, and she will always have a battle to conquer, whether in school, at her first job and at her next relapse treatment meeting, but through all of this fighting, Abbigail will move mountains too.  For now I will fight for her, but I want her to know that “this” was not for nothing.  She does not suffer and will not continue to feel pain just because the good Lord felt she should, but because she has purpose.

Abbigail May Ann Moreau you are bigger than Cancer, you are stronger than OMS and you are rare.

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think…”

I will share your story with at least one more person everyday and spread awareness of your fight and the fight of other’s special like  you; childhood cancer and OMS are not easy roads travelled by families, but they are travelled and they deserve notice too.

See Abbigail capturing hearts near and far…

{March 2014} Abbigail is shown in the local shaving Chanelle’s head during the young lady’s personal fundraiser event to show her support for Abbigail.  This was a moment that made mama cry and provided inspiration to so many people who watched a 3 year old battling cancer shave an 11 year old girl’s 24 inch long locks completely off.

{March 2013} Candlelighter’s Newsletter Abbigail and William were shown enjoying the Disney on Ice show at ScotiaBank Place this past month.  Abbigail was mesmerized by the colours and sounds and absolutely fell in love with Rapunzel’s horse.  she still “clucks” to the thought of that horse and requests the video footage I managed to tape during the show.

{March 28 2013} Super Sophia – Non-Profit Org Abbigail has capture the hearts of many of her “followers” and this wonderful mother of a non-profit is no exception.  Super Sophia provides prayers, strength, faith and comfort to children who are battling cancer. She provides as many children battling cancer with a pair of scrubs which will comfort them while they are in the hospital getting treatments etc. They are also not your traditonal scrubs and have some fun detail added to them. Also each pair has a heart sewn on the sleeve. This heart is very special as it was hand drawn by Sophia’s big brother and biggest supporter. He drew it in honor of his baby sister and all the other beautiful children who have cancer.

Abbigail has some exciting appearances and articles coming up…stay tuned!
