ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A 12-year-old cancer patient was given a new signed photo and jersey by Chicago Cubs first basemen Anthony Rizzo days after the original signed photo disappeared.

The original photo belonging to Abby Schrage, 12, of Highland, Illinois, has been a source of inspiration. The photo recently disappeared, with Abby’s family wondering if it was stolen.

When Anthony Rizzo's foundation found out what happened, it was quick to donate a new photo and jersey.

Abby was diagnosed with two germinoma brain tumors last year and beat it before the cancer returned in May.

Children’s Hospital said it checked surveillance and does not believe the photo was stolen, adding it may have fallen into a trash can.
