With her heart set on winning the world cup, Abby Wambach’s heart set in a different direction when she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.
Now the 27-year-old is making the biggest of the most humbling decisions of her life.
The United States soccer star was diagnosed at age 40 with the disease.
The disease causes the body to make too little insulin and cause blood sugar levels to fall.
Abby’s team-mates and teammates in the US Women’s National Team helped raise more than $15 million for her foundation, Wamback Diabetes Support, which helps families and individuals struggling with diabetes.
“I have no regrets,” Abby told the Guardian in an interview.
“My whole life I have been a supporter of my team and of our country, and I’m so happy that I am a part of that.”
She and her family moved to New York in the late 90s, and she began a coaching career as a player.
After a year at a prestigious academy, she left for the University of Texas in Austin.
Her first season at UT was a smashing success.
In her first season with the Longhorns, Wambe won the Big 12 tournament for the first time and went on to earn the conference’s Coach of the Year award.
Abby continued to play in the national team, winning two gold medals in Beijing and a silver medal in Vancouver in 2013.
After two more seasons in the American soccer league, WAMbe was released from the team in 2018.
After several unsuccessful attempts to get back into the national soccer team in 2019, she was eventually signed by FC Dallas in 2019.
Abby had the chance to play for her country in the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2022, but she refused to be a part in the tournament due to the disease and ultimately missed out on a place in Brazil.
Abby is now one of the greatest soccer players in the world and the face of Wambacchia, a charity dedicated to helping people with diabetes get the treatment they need.
Abby has donated over $1 million to Wambachee’s cause and also works to educate her players and fans about diabetes.
In 2017, Abby donated the first $10,000 to Wambes foundation and the second $5,000, which was for a new stadium for Wambaches children.
Wambakies new stadium is the first in the country to offer diabetes care, according to Abby.
Abby and Wambacha are also working on a new children’s hospital to treat children who have diabetes and to educate people about the disease, according the foundation.
Abby told ESPN FC that she hopes the new facility will be ready in 2018 and that the new school will be the home for Wambachee children for the rest of their lives.
Abby said the school will have the capacity to accommodate up to 100 students.
“We’re going to have the first facility for children with diabetes in the United States and we’re going into a new school where the kids can get treatment, because this is the future,” Abby said.
“The goal is to be able to treat all the kids in the city of Dallas.”
Wambacho’s children will be able attend Wambakhia’s first public school, Wampum, as soon as next year.
Wampums new facility, which will be named after Abby, will be dedicated to providing treatment for children who are affected by diabetes.
Abby, who is also a supporter, said that she and Wampuma have been very grateful for the support from Wambas community and friends.
“There’s not a lot of kids who have the ability to go to school and be able go to the hospital for a checkup.
It’s really been a blessing to have been able to go with her kids to the Wampus Children’s Hospital,” Abby, the US national team player, told ESPN.
“Wampum is such a beautiful school and we can’t wait to go there.”
Abby Wampam is the daughter of Abby Wamble, the former US national women’s soccer team player.
Wambit, who died in 2017, was diagnosed in 2015 with Type 1 diabetes.
Wamebe Wampmice, who also died in 2016, had diabetes and was also diagnosed with diabetes at the time.
Wamerbe died in May 2017 at age 57.
Wamps family was also in shock when Wambadec died from the disease in 2016.
Wmamba Wambamba died in December 2017.
Abby Wamps children are now the first children with type 2 diabetes in America.
Abby played her last game in December 2018 against the Vancouver Whitecaps, where she was injured in the first half.
Abby lost both her legs and both of her arms and is currently in the hospital.
Abby also suffered a stroke and suffered a brain bleed.
She has also suffered multiple strokes, but her prognosis is still not good.
Abby won the Women’s Gold Cup at the 2016 World Cup
