3-Year-Old Tennessee Girl Battling Brain Cancer Granted Wish to Meet a "Unicorn"
In many ways, Abigail Leggio is like any other three-year-old girl: she loves unicorns, plays princess, and everything magical. But the youngster from Clarksville, Tennessee, has also been battling brain cancer for almost a year.
Abigail's family recently teamed up with Make-A-Wish Middle Tennessee to help her achieve her dream of being a magical princess and meeting a unicorn.
On the day she wanted, Make-A-Wish gave Abigail a princess dress and a flower crown and gave her brother Ty a prince outfit so that he too could take part in the magic. Abigail was allowed to ride in a horse-drawn carriage, meet two "unicorns", feed a unicorn carrots and be photographed with a unicorn. When Abigail's wish was granted, her mother told Melissa that the day "was more than she could ever have imagined!"
"It was a happy and sad moment. Seeing her get excited about the unicorn and have a day just around her was amazing," said Melissa. "Seeing everything that was planned to make her feel special was extraordinary. It was sad because she had to have cancer to have that special day."

Abigail was diagnosed with a brain tumor in October 2020. For the past 10 months, she has undergone proton therapy, chemotherapy, and 10-hour brain surgery to remove the largest and most aggressive tumor. While the remaining tumors haven't shrunk, neither have they grown or spread, which is great news.
Abigail had six rounds of chemotherapy at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital in Vanderbilt, Nashville.
"All of the doctors and nurses at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital in Vanderbilt have been great," Melissa told Fox News. “Due to [COVID-19] restrictions, only one parent was allowed to be with Abigail during her treatment and all the nurses looked after her so well and helped me through the ups and downs to see your child being treated for cancer forever grateful his for everything they did for us.
