Little 3-year-old Abigail Leggio loves playing princess, magical things, and unicorns.

Abby, as friends and family call her, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in July 2020.

Her mom, Melissa Leggio, said Abby fell and hit her head. That night she was throwing up and was rushed to a nearby hospital.

Abby had to be flown to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital after her doctors found a brain tumor.

On August 11, three weeks after we went home, Abby started six rounds of chemo. Each round lasted about 2-3 weeks in the hospital, Leggio said.

The youngster from Clarksville, Tennessee, had ten-hour brain surgery to remove the primary brain tumor on March 15.

The family learned that Abby qualified for a wish through the Make-A-Wish Foundation while at the hospital.

Thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation teaming up with Abigail’s family, she got to live out her dream of becoming a princess and meeting a ‘magical unicorn’.

On her wish day, Abigail wore a princess dress and flower crown, and her brother Ty had on a prince outfit, so join in on the magical moment.

Abigail rode a unicorn-drawn carriage, feed carrots to the unicorn, and had her picture was taken with the mythical animal at Harris Riding Academy in Murfreesboro, Tennesse.

“It was more than she could have ever imagined. To see her excited about the unicorn was both a happy and sad moment.

To see everything unfold to make her feel special was extraordinary, but it was sad as well because she had to have cancer to have this day.” her mother Melissa told Fox News.
