Why Abigail wants to be a voice for children fighting cancer:

I would be honored to be an Ambassador for DHC because fighting Childhood Cancer means a lot to my family. We have good friends in GA who have fought this battle with their oldest and now with their second child. Elizabeth Pitts found out she had a brain tumor in 2006. She went through the treatment. In July 2009 she found out she had ALL Leukemia. She fought & she fought hard. Elizabeth passed away July 1, 2010. I will always remember Elizabeth as a happy girl. I always saw her with a smile on her face and wanting to help others.

And now this amazing family is having to fight this battle with their second child, Madeline. Maddie (as close friends and family call her) found out Nov 4, 2016, that she has AML Leukemia. This family was devastated but put all their faith in God again and Maddie began to fight this beast. Then this past Aug. they found out news they were hoping wasn’t true. Maddie had a progressive brain tumor. Another fight on top of fighting leukemia. The Pitts family is such an amazing family. They shouldn’t have to be going through this again. Madeline lost her battle this past year. And I pray that they don’t have to face this with their other two kids. They shouldn’t have had to go through it the first time. No Family should.

I want to be an ambassador for Elizabeth and Madeline Pitts.
