This year would have been Abby Wujcik’s graduation from Oak Lawn-Hometown Middle School.
Abby was a 6-year-old student at Kolmar when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After 15 months of a courageous battle, she passed away at age 8. Her parents joined with the John McNicholas Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation as Live Like Abby to honor her and help raise funds for pediatric brain tumor research. The Foundation also promotes awareness and education about this terrible disease, the inadequacy of treatment options and the need for new approaches in care. This walk-a-thon will take place during the Go Gray in May Day.
“We hope to inspire and empower students to join in the fight to effect real change in the lives of young people diagnosed with brain tumors,” said Karen O’Dea.
online sponsor information and walk-a-thon forms will be distributed in March. For more information about the Live Like Abby foundation:
