Abby's Journey

We'd like to invite you to read Abby's Journey from the beginning. We hope that her story may help a family who is facing the same battle with DIPG. We are praying for a cure and are praying for every child who is diagnosed with cancer.

This is Abby's story.

Tuesday, December 21, 2010


On Friday, Abby got her blood work done and her numbers were not good again. Her ANC was at 400 and if it gets under 500 she has to stop taking her chemo until it gets back over 1000. So, they took Abby off of the chemo, and since this is the second time her numbers have dropped, she can't take her chemo anymore. She is still a part of the clinical trial and they will continue to monitor her, but she can't take the chemo. We asked the doctors what the next step is, and they told us that they all will meet on Thursday the 23rd after her scan to discuss Abby and to figure out what the next step will be. They did tell us that the chemo Abby was taking can be available to us commercially (with a prescription of course) but it would be at a lower dosage. So that is not a definite course of action, but we are hoping it is an option. Otherwise, we are waiting for Thursday for the scan to baffle the doctors and are praying for a good result!

Only seven days until Abigail's birthday!!!
