Abbie’s Sparkle Foundation
Supporting children with cancer across the UK
We are a Scottish Children’s Charity providing support for children with Cancer across the UK. We know how important it is to live every moment of every day to the full and Abbie’s Sparkle Foundation is here to spread Abbie’s Sparkle to help brighten a child’s day #sparkle.
Abbie’s smile, sparkle and infectious enthusiasm lit up the room and that’s exactly how Abbie wants people to remember and celebrate her life. Abbie (15) passed away on Christmas Day, 2017, after living with Sarcoma a rare form of Cancer, for four years and four months. Christmas was Abbie’s favourite day, she loved it, we believe that Abbie held on and chose the sparkliest day of the year to go. It was the sense of humour and laugh-out-loud mentality, which set Abbie apart and meant she lived every moment to the full. Abbie was a vivacious and talented cheerleader who was hailed by medics as “incredible and a truly inspirational young women”. One of Abbie’s wishes is to raise money for “Hospitals and stuff” under the charity name Abbie’s Sparkle Foundation.
