Doctors Gave 10 Year-Old 48 Hours To Live, But She Had A Better Idea.

Being diagnosed with a disease like Leukemia can be a death sentence, especially if it's not treated right away. But even with treatment, some people may lose all hope and surrender to all those negative thoughts about possibly dying. Fighting can sometimes seem futile to those stricken with this disease, and the treatments available are extremely painful and don't guarantee any results. The repercussions of dealing with Leukemia and its treatment can be physically and emotionally taxing on even the strongest willed individual. It’s like a complete roller coaster ride of emotions for the sufferer and their family members.

Abby and her camp counselor had bonded over several summers and understood each other.

Abby met her camp counselor, Sarah Swaim Rostock, at Camp Fantastic in 2013. This organization is run by Special Love Organization for kids who are dealing with cancer. Sarah was herself a cancer survivor and was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2003. She could relate with Abby on so many levels, which was the reason behind their strong bond. She could recognize what Abby was going through and was heartbroken when she heard that the little angel had relapsed again.

“I know the path you’re about to walk down and I want to be there for Abby in any way that I can,” Sarah wrote to Abby's mom.

Sarah prayed everyday for the little angel. As soon as she heard about Abby’s relapse, she found her mother on Facebook and left a heartfelt message. Sarah reassured Abby's mom that she was right by their side and would help them in any way she could. She stood by her promise and was right by Abby’s side through everything, every test and treatment, including a possible bone marrow transplant, which was terrifying.
