The video starts with Ruby sitting in her wheelchair without starting it when Abbie moves to her side and places her hand behind Ruby's head to whisper what seems like some encouraging words.

Both stand together for some time and then Abbie takes Ruby's hand in her own and places it on the bar the operates the wheelchair and powers it up.

Ruby immediately races off in the wheelchair, and everyone is thrilled with the little girl's progress.


After Ruby stops, Abbie rushes to her again and says something that gets a big laugh out of Ruby.

Witnessing the loving relationship shared by the little girls, Ruby's mother can be heard saying, “Oh my gosh, I love them so much!” at the beginning of the video.

Abbie and Ruby share an extraordinary way of communicating with each other, mainly because Ruby is unable to walk or talk as she suffers from H-ABC (Hypomyelination with Atrophy of Basal Ganglia and Cerebellum), which affects certain parts of the brain and it tends to worsen as time passes.

But Ruby can surely enjoy these special moments together with her dear friend Abbie. Her condition does not come in the way of them communicating with each other and sharing a joke at times.

It is a rare condition, and there are less than 100 people in the world who suffer from H-ABC. According to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, the rare genetic disorder progressively damages the nervous system.

It affects two parts of the brain, the basal ganglia and the cerebellum, which helps in controlling the body’s movement and actions.
