Judging from the outside and her beautiful beaming smile you would never know the struggles that Erin Abay has been through since she was a baby and that’s just how she likes it. She does not let her medical issues define her. Residing in a small town not far from Dallas, Texas 28 year old Abay lives with her husband Mike and their ridiculously adorable fur baby, a shih-tzu named, Ducky.
Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis by 18 month old Erin’s failure to thrive continued with chronic ear infections, digestive issues, asthma, as well as becoming a diabetic by the age of 12. To top it all off, she had to live with an ostomy bag as a teenager after a medicine that she had taken for her digestive issues caused a problem that destroyed her colon. Thankfully at 15 she had the ostomy reversed but she never forgot how difficult having the bag was which is why she reached out to us on social media after our initial interview aired. Even though she no longer had a bag Erin was thrilled to see a company finally doing something about the lack of medical friendly clothing.
