Abby McPherson is a 12 year old girl that was born with congenital
cytomegalovirus. CMV is a virus that caused Abby to have cerebral palsy, hearing loss, vision loss, hydrocephalus, epilepsy,
and mental disability. You can read more about CMV at www.stopcmv.com.
Despite Abby's challenges, she is an extremely happy little girl that enjoys life to the fullest in her own ways and brings
joy to everyone who knows her. Her smile and laughter are contagious!
Abby uses a wheelchair and is in need of a handicap accessible van to transport her. She has outgrown the current van
with makeshift ramp that her family is using, and it has become unsafe for her.
The Wheels for Abby team has a goal of raising $40,000 to purchase a used handicap accessible van. Funds raised through
the Lexington Half Marathon will go towards the purchase of a van. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/wheelsforabby2016 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
