When Abby Snider was 15 years old, she was given a diagnosis that no one, no matter what age, ever,everwants to hear: leukemia.

The next year of her life left her feeling like she wanted to give up. Her treatments made it so hard to want to stay alive, that she was just a sliver away from losing all hope. Can you imagine what that must have been like for her and her family?

She missed out on a whole year of her life. She missed out on school dances, on going to class, and on hanging out with her friends.

So, once she was on the mend, her family and friends wanted to do something extra special for her.

But, they wanted it to also be a big surprise… a surprise to end all surprises!

Sniderthought that she was getting all dolled up for a gala for which she prepared a speech. However, she had no idea what was really going to be behind the doors at the hotel after stepping out of a fancy limousine.

She deserved every happy moment of this party. What a strong young woman Abby Snider is.
