Abigail is a sweet 6-year-old girl who lives with her mother and her maternal grandparents. She was diagnosed with brain cancer in December of 2019 and has been receiving treatment ever since. Due to her daughter’s diagnosis, Abigail’s mother has had to leave her job in order to be her daughter’s primary caregiver. JUST TRYAN IT funded an emergency relief grant to assist with Abby’s uncovered medical expenses. Abby’s mom is now back to work and the family is thrilled to support JUST TRYAN IT by serving as the 2021 Face of the Race in Bethesda

Abigail loves to draw, paint and create art. She is an avid reader and has over 500 books in her reading cottage in the backyard. She calls her nurses her best friends and loves to have dance parties with them. Abby’s mom says she is extremely empathetic and is constantly looking out for others and giving them compliments.

“I loved reading about how children help raise money by doing triathlons! That is the coolest idea!!! Thank you so much!” — Katie, mom of Abigail
