Abby is an energetic, spunky 18-year-old who has BEAT medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. Here is her story.
Abby had been having headaches for months. Migraine treatments were not working, and nausea and vomiting had become a regular thing for her. It was time to look further.
On January 17, 2019 Abby went to Shawano hospital for a CT scan. After the scan, also her dad’s birthday, they went out for breakfast before heading to school. Shortly after she arrived at school she was called to the office and told to bring her things. She just got there? What was going on? As she approached the office, she saw her dad. He said nothing other than they needed to leave right now. Once they exited the building Abby’s dad told her they must go to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee immediately because they found a mass in her brain. Suddenly, she stopped. Her eyes welled up with tears. The ride to Milwaukee was silent.
“Once we got to Children’s I was tagged like a deer with so many wristbands and poked with needles. I sat in the emergency room with my parents until I was told I needed a four-hour MRI” describes Abby of her arrival. The next morning, they were given the news that there was a tumor in Abby’s brain. The doctor explained that brain surgery was needed to determine if the tumor was cancerous or not.
On January 23rd, 2019, after 6 long days in a room filled with stuffed animals, flowers, balloons, coloring books, and lots of cards, it was time for surgery. Abby states “I stayed up as late as I could that night wondering if I would ever be normal again or if I would remember anything”. After the surgery, Abby woke up to her parents and the nurses calling her name. She tried to lift her head but could not because of the intense pain. She had 18 stitches and a drain tube coming from the top of her head.
On January 25th, 2019, the results were delivered from pathology. Abby vividly remembers laying in her bed with her parents on the left side and the doctor at the foot of the bed. The doctor said I had Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer. Her eyes, once again, welled up with tears. And, once again, there was a long silence. Breaking the silence, Abby turned to her parents and uttered the words “I’m sorry”.
Recovery after the surgery was long and arduous. Abby had to learn to walk again, to eat, to shower, write, and everything in between. On January 31st, 2019 she was finally able to go home. The drive home, in an ice storm, was terrible, but, all she could think about was what her future was going to look like.
March 4th, 2019 was Abby’s first radiation treatment. Her treatments were hard, 2-3 hours of stillness lying face down. This continued for six weeks, five days a week. Thirty radiation treatments. After radiation she endured 56 weeks of chemotherapy. There were a lot of nights spent in the hospital. The fevers and nausea seemed unbearable at times.
April 7th, 2020 was Abby’s last chemo appointment and the first day on the road to rebuilding and recovery. Two months later her port was removed, and she started in-person physical therapy. After 2 months of continuous therapy, it was volleyball season, and she was ready to get back to the sport she loved. It has been two years since she was able to join her teammates on the court. Abby made the varsity team and was named team captain. Her strength, perseverance, dedication, strong will and persistence allowed her to lead her team both on and off the court. At the end of the season Abby was awarded the WIAA Spirit of Sport award. Her coach, Coach Lew, nominated Abby and he made certain they were aware of her bright spirit. Abby is deeply grateful for Coach Lew, not only was he an exceptional mentor and coach, but one of her biggest supporters throughout her journey.
Not too long after the season ended Abby found herself in a familiar yet different role. Coach Lew had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She has been supporting him, just as he did her, with words of encouragement, comfort baskets and more.
Abby graduated high school this year. She plans on attending UW – La Crosse in the fall and will major in accounting. She continues to fight every day to get stronger.

ABOUT NICOLET NATURAL WATER
Nicolet Natural Artesian Water started bottling in the early 1980’s. The 5-gallon water is still bottled at its natural water source in northeastern Wisconsin, near the Nicolet National Forest.
The original company logos depicted a black bear cub wrestling with a 5-gallon water bottle. A forest theme has been preserved and continues today. Due to its close proximity to Green Bay, Nicolet became the “official water” of the Green Bay Packers — a partnership that has remained for more than 25 years!
As the Nicolet™ Natural Water brand continues to grow in popularity, we are proud to have customers that span from Illinois to Wisconsin to Upper Michigan.
With a variety of convenient package sizes to choose from — including 5-gallon water bottles, single-bottle sizes and multi-packs — there’s one to fit every occasion and need.
