Abby's rare type of head and neck cancer is more common in people who are at least 55 years of age. Additionally, men are more likely than woman to get these types of cancers. Typically, these types of cancers occur more often in other areas of the world, such as Japan and South Africa.
It is a goal of Abby's Promise to bring more awareness and research funding for this type of cancer. With this initiative, our goal is to raise money for research of head and neck cancers. Our hope is that one day, no other family has to lose a loved one as we have.
