A former Riley Hospital patient gave a check of more than $10,000 to the hospital’s foundation Thursday.

Abigail Johnson raised $10,187.20 by selling her holiday CD, Smile and Believe Volume 2. This isn’t the first time the fourth-grader has recorded a CD to benefit the Riley Children’s Foundation. In 2011, she sold Smile and Believe Volume 1.

In all, Abigail has raised more than $20,000 for the foundation.

Abigail was inspired by a Maddy Justice, a Franklin Township teen who is fighting a battle with cancer.  Abigail dedicated her CD to Maddy and will continue to fight with her.

Abigail became a Riley Kid in 2003 when the world-class medical staff at Riley Hospital for Children performed emergency, life-saving surgery when she was an infant.
