Courageous, Dignified, Classy, Funny, Meticulous, Bright, Sassy, Strong, Determined, Thoughtful, Loyal, Calm, Natural, Honest, Creative, Loving, Spirited, Stunning, Unique, a Star – these are just some of the lovely words that were said about Abbie – on her request to know “What is great about me” 🙂
Another of Abbie’s wishes was, for us to set up her own charity. She named it ‘Abbie’s Sparkle Foundation’, and told us to raise “money towards hospitals and stuff”.
It felt right to help children, in Abbie’s circumstances, facing their own challenges, after being diagnosed with Cancer. Abbie’s determination to have as normal a life as possible, took us to many great places, to do many great things. Other Childrens Cancer Charites helped us with financial support to have time away as a family to create special memories. Abbie’s Sparkle Foundation purpose is to provide similar support in the way of Gifts and Grants to brighten a child’s day. It became a registered SCIO on March 12th 2018 and is here to help children across the UK. We hope Abbie is proud of the way we are ‘Spreading her Sparkle’. We certainly are very proud, so many people are inspired and motivated by Abbie’s story and the legacy that she has created.
