Abigail was in seventh grade when Uber driver Jason Dalton allegedly shot her and seven other people in February 2016. She and another woman were the only victims to survive.

Vickie Kopf says her daughter suffers severe headaches. Part of Abigail's skull has been replaced with a plate because of damage from a gunshot wound.

Kopf says Abigail will have a personal assistant with her at all times to ensure she has all of the support she needs.
