NHL Patient Goes to the Olympics
Abbie Seeliger has gotten to go the Olympics because the Make a Wish Foundation flew her to London, where she's seeing LeBron James and the men's basketball team as well as the women's volleyball matches.
I love to hear stories like that!
Seeliger was a sophomore in high school and a volleyball player herself when she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. She underwent a year of chemotherapy treatments and it's in remission now, which is great news obviously. She's also back in training to try out for her volleyball team again, and in London for the Olympics.
Good for her!
