In 2010, Abigail was diagnosed with intractable epilepsy. She suffers from seizures daily, even while sleeping. Due to her illnesses she has loss of vision in her left eye and has lost her ability to read. Abigail will soon undergo brain surgery to remove sections of her brain that are causing the seizures. Abigail’s family relies on her service dog, Cosmo to alert them when a seizure is about to occur.
“I loved everything. I really enjoyed swimming with the dolphins and seeing the coral reef, it was a tropical paradise” said Abigail. “The hotel was a palace, I felt like I was living like a princess.”
In Key West, Abigail also enjoyed the shipwreck museum, the beach and snorkeling. “This was the first time that I cried happy tears for my kids, thank you to Kids Wish Network and everyone who made this possible” said Katherine, Abigail’s mom.
