Abigail E. Keller Foundation

The purpose of the Abigail E. Keller Foundation is to support programs and organizations that serve the rare, undiagnosed, terminally ill, and medically complex/fragile pediatric community.

2021 What a Year!!
The Abigail E. Keller Foundation would like to thank the many folks who supported us this past year.

Wow, we raised over $250,000!! We are so grateful and continue to work hard in raising funds to help the medically complex/fragile pediatric community in Central Texas. Just this year we have given $130,000 to the Dell Children’s Pediatric At Home program that will fund a Hospice Child Life Specialist, donated $50,000 to the Dell Children’s Comprehensive Care Clinic that treats the most medically complex patients, raised $12,000 for two sensory carts to be used at the Comprehensive Care Clinic and finally gave over $10,000 to families with medically complex children. We are so proud of all the work we have done but as the medically complex pediatric community continues to grow so does our mission to help these programs and children.

So as end of 2021 approaches, please consider a tax deductible end of year contribution to the Abigail E. Keller Foundation.

Should you like to make a gift in honor of someone or a memorial gift, just place the honoree person’s name and the recognition person’s address (if applicable) in the comments box under the dollar amount.

We are truly grateful and we wish you all a most Blessed Holiday season and the Happiest of New Year’s.

Abigail’s Story

Once upon a time there was a princess, Abigail Elizabeth Keller, a little girl with a big name, her birth on July 25, 2007 was one of the happiest days of her parents lives. Her parents like to think that Abigail knew of the journey she would take them on by the smile she had on her face as they rode down the hospital elevator to take her home. Abbey’s smile was the one constant that could be counted on despite her lifelong struggles. One night as she rode in the car with her parents she would get upset and then smile for no reason until Momma realized that it was every time that they left the glow of the overhead street lights, their blind little girl didn’t like the dark! Early on as her Dada held her in his arms, during one of the hospitalizations, they were both covered in vomit but she looked up at him and smiled. Countless were the times when she laughed and played despite being in the hospital, amazing all who saw. Who else, but Abbey, could get discharged straight out of the intensive care unit to go home? And because of her illness her parents met the wonderful doctors and nurses whom without Abbey they would never have known. Abigail educated her parents of the world, that is special needs parenting, and were made better because of it. She spent half her life in the hospital or in clinics. Read more…
