Abby attends Powhatan High School in Powhatan, VA. Her mother was diagnosed with stage four Esophageal Cancer three months ago.

On Monday, she was told she only has a week to live due to her kidneys failing.

Principal Mike Massa and a few teachers made sure that Abby's mother would see her graduate high school before she passed.
