Booboo Stewart To Participate in Abby’s Walk

The organizers of Abby’s Walk (the Twilight Moms of Middle GA) have Booboo Stewart onboard to particpate in their event.

Abby’s Dream is a site dedicated to bringing about an awareness of lung cancer and that it can strike anyone. In this case, a 13-year-old girl who has been battling it for four years.  Many people  are unaware that lung cancer can strike people who have never smoked or been around smokers.

According to their site:

“Abby Wilson is an amazing strong and beautiful 13-year-old girl who has had lung cancer for 4 years!  To bring awareness to lung cancer and that it can affect people of all ages –  regardless of whether they have smoked in their life or not – Abby’s Dream was formed to hold walks and events to provide awareness and support for her family.  Click this link to register for Abby’s Dream Walk 2011 – Registration.

You can also connect with the group on their Facebook page.

Abby is an avid Twilight fan and is solidly on Team Wolfpack. If you can support this cause please do.

  1. This is important awareness to spread! We need to let go of the steroetypes! When my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer (sadly he lost his battle) the most painful question when people found out was “Did he smoke?” Almost as if that made the cancer ok or understandable =/ It can happen to anyone. Thanks Abby, TwilightMoms and Booboo!!

    Thanks Twilight Lexicon so much for posting this about Abby’s Dream Walk!!! I cannot wait to show this to Abby. She will be shocked.

    Lucinda-
    I am so sorry to hear about your Daddy. I know exactly what you mean though. Abby was diagnosed at the age of 9 and we have been “jokingly” asked those questions for the past 4 years. They are not funny in any way… they are judgmental and hurtful. As far as I am concerned no one should ever be made to feel as if they are to blame for having cancer, no matter what cancer you are diagnosed with. It is a stigma that MUST be eradicated.Thank you for your support and your family will be in our prayers.
    Tina
