Book Drop-Off a Success!

On Thursday, March 5th, Will and I dropped off over 1700 books and other items to Medical City. The ceremony was very nice and there was a large turn-out. We also got to see the space where Abby's Book Corner will be located. We will have a separate ribbon-cutting ceremony when the renovations are complete. Will and I would like to thank everyone that helped make Abby's Book Corner Book Drive a success. Most importantly, we would like to thank our daughter, Abby, as she motivated and inspired us to create a lasting legacy in her memory. It is our hope that the patients and their families at Medical City can benefit from these books. These books won't make them get better, but if it can take their mind off their pain or stress and bring a smile to their face for a few moments, then it is worthwhile.

We will continue to collect books for Abby's Book Corner. Books may be purchased from Abby's Wish List on Amazon.com. Additionally, monetary donations may be made to help sustain the library to Medical City Foundation in memory of Abigail Kearney.
