Abigail E. Keller Foundation Donates to create New Hospice Pediatric Special Needs Fund

Announcement:
April 11, 2020

It is with great pleasure that the Abigail E. Keller Foundation support Hospice Austin in creating the Abigail E. Keller Pediatric Special Needs Fund with a seed donation of $5,000.00. It is such a wonderful way to honor Abigail’s memory and help other terminally ill children and their families.

The Abigail E. Keller Foundation is committed to supporting programs and organizations that serve the rare, undiagnosed, terminally ill, and medically complex/fragile pediatric community. We hope this Fund will allow Hospice Austin to provide emergency assistance to families who are caring for a terminally ill child in the midst of severe financial distress. This specific set of funds will allow Hospice Austin to assist families with basic needs such as medications, housing, food, utility costs, and special equipment not covered by insurance.

We look forward to starting this new fund and continued partnership with Hospice Austin in helping care and support these children and their families that seek friendship, guidance, resources and more as they care for their precious child during the difficult times.

The Abigail E. Keller Foundation is a proud to be affiliated with these organizations.

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…
