Although she had valiantly fought cancer since the age of four, Abby Furco was finally losing her battle. Tragically, doctors had given the youngster – who was still only nine years old – just two days to live. And aware of the short time that they had left with Abby, her family gathered around her bedside in order to say their goodbyes. But just as it seemed that the little girl was ultimately succumbing to her illness, she opened her eyes – and said something that took her parents’ breath away.
Abby lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia, with her mom Patty, dad Joe, older sister Maggie and little sister Emily. And the girl appears to be much like any other child her age, with particular passions for summer camp, reading and baking for her loved ones. Abby isn’t quite so keen, though, on math – her most hated school subject.
