Abigayle Lobsinger's Journey

Please take a moment to read....Abigayle Lobsinger has a rare and aggressive childhood cancer, called Neuroblastoma.  As you can imagine, not only is it terrifying that a child has to endure the suffering from the aggressive treatment plan, the family is going through quite an emotional and financially draining ordeal. Her mother had to give up her daycare business in order to be there through the treatment and to protect her child from any illnesses that could come into their home. The father is often away from work in order to drive them to numerous out of town appointments at both McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton and Sick Kids in Toronto. The gas, parking, eating at the hospital etc adds up very quickly. While the parents are doing this, the other three children are at home trying to maintain a normal life at school and extra curricular activities while being cared for by other family members and friends.

This GoFundMe campaign has been set up in order to help the family with the growing costs and to bring awareness to this horrible disease. 

Abigayle Lobsinger is a sweet child and has shown a lot of people just how tough she is. Through the treatment, the pain, the awful side affects, she has not complained. In the words of her father, She is " Waterloo's Toughest Cookie".

Please help support this family. Every little bit helps. 
Thank you!!

Abigayle had a couple rough days after returning home from the last round of treatment, but has really come around the last few days.

Up and moving around, playing, eating and all the weight she lost she has put back on again.

Despite how good she looks and feels, her counts were not where her oncology doctor would like them so next round of treatment has be postponed. Hoping counts climb this week so next round can begin March 10th.

Sad couple days for us as Abigayle's hair has fallen out again. From the time we took this picture to 6 hours later she went from looking like a Rocker Girl to no hair at all. Abigayle is handling it fantastic though and being so brave about it.

Thank you to Tyler from the clinic at Mac for helping Abigayle pick out a few adorable beanies to wear this morning to help keep her head warm.

3 days in and Abigayle's spirits are still up.

Monday went well. Tuesday and today were a little tougher as the chemo meds make their way through her body.

Some vomiting, tough to get comfortable and overall just not feeling well.

2 more days of meds to go for this round.

Hello Family & Friends,

Abigayle's surgery went well on Monday. Along with placing in a Hickman, doctors took 2 bone marrow samples, one from the left and another from the right to ensure proper results. She had a little bit of discomfort for a few days but is now back to her normal self.

Providing a bed is available, Abigayle will be admitted to McMaster Hospital on Sunday the 10th and treatment will begin on Monday the 11th. This will last 5 days. If all is well she will be discharged on Saturday the 16th.

Thank you to everyone that has reached out to our family. You have no idea how much that means to all of us. The love, support, offers of help, prayers, positive vibes and good karma is greatly appreciated by us.

Please stayed tuned as family and friends are planning different fundraisers to help our family financially during this next leg of Abigayle's Journey. As more information and dates are determined they will be posted.

Again, anything posted on this page you have our permission to share.
