“She was diagnosed the day before her 5th birthday. She came into the hospital rosy-cheeked and bopping around,” Tammy Krause, Gabby’s mother, told CBS4’s Karen Leigh in 2011.

Gabby is remembered as a happy, playful child who lived life with a big smile on her face. She passed away after 19-month-long battle.

Her spirit lives on through Bags of Fun, an initiative her mother helped start. The bags are filled with “educational, interactive and silly toys” aimed to make children battling serious illnesses feel happier.

Since 2004, the Gabby Krause Foundation has given out more than 8,300 bags.
