“Miranda Harrison recalled making a fast friend in 2010 with Abbie Waters, an 8-year-old girl, who was undergoing treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma, a cancer of the connective tissues in Richmond.
“A friend and I helped out at a local clinic, and that’s where I met Abby,” said Harrison. “We got closer during her treatment, and I would stay with her for days at a time. Two days after her ninth birthday she passed away holding my hand.
“That is the kind of thing that alters your life forever. It made me see that I was part of something bigger.”
